    Pros

    - Fast-paced: Priority can change within weeks. Done is better than perfect.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great company values. They have put a lot of thought behind them and it's very inspiring to see what the company stands for on paper.
    - They are quite transparent when it comes to product strategy, roadmaps, etc. It's great how much they make you feel part of the success of the company.
    - Excellent benefits and perks.
    - Sheryl Sandberg. A thousand times.

    Cons

    - If you land in the wrong team or are a victim of poor management, HR will not do anything about it, even if you have evidence. Firstly, they are severely understaffed (one HRBP per 200 managers?).
    - The feedback cycles are too political. This is one of the worst things about Facebook. It has 'imported' bad habits and bad people from other companies who brought their corporate baggage with them. It didn't used to be like this.
    - People work on projects based on their six-month feedback review, not what's good for a team or the company. The lack of accountability from upper management makes this much worse. People get promoted for 'inventing' things that get abandoned after a month.
    - If you are good at public relations but do nothing, you can get very far at Facebook. It means you have 'visibility'. It's poisonous.
    - It has become so cynical that the latest 'trick' to get someone promoted to director is for them to organise a 'global' gathering. In other words, bring a bunch of people to Menlo Park, say it's for team building and give it a funky name or a motto... and boom! They become a Very Senior Person.
    - Zero work/life balance. You must be available 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    ACCOUNTABILITY! There is a huge gap between directors and VPs and the rest of the company. They don't get told about issues, or the information is withheld until it's too late. The hiring spree is creating empires as more and more people are being added under the management layers. It's much easier to 'hide' things when the company is growing at this pace but there isn't enough support to ensure the culture is retained. After all, we have great company values. Enforce them!
