    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Unbeatable perks and benefits: wellness benefit, retirement, 1 month leave once you have spent 5 years, increases every six month, business class travel for long flights, you don't have to share your hotel room like at Google, etc etc...The list is very long. The revenue performance of the company says it all, they are rich and generous with employees. You're really spoiled here. Unique opportunities with an ability...

    Cons

    No decision making. This sounds incredible, but it's true. Decisions are taken as part of cross-functional meetings where everyone has an opinion and nobody is really driving. Somehow, it seems to work well because decisions ARE taken! But the downside is that it creates a lot of insecurity as people are really freaked out that things blow up (and it blows up quickly here, considering the regular negative media headlines)...

    (to low-level management:) Breath and stop thinking that the entire company lays on your shoulders :-) we will all survive even if you take 2 weeks PTO!

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary, Free Food and Perks

    Cons

    - Bad Management: They have no idea of what they are talking about + extremely unprofessional. You want to get promoted? Easy, be a manager's friend, they only care about going out and drinking - Not realistic metrics: the metrics and data do not make sense and do not align with the real need of the company - Too much politics and very competitive: Is all about how you communicate with others and not about the what...

    Advice to Management

    - Please start to be more professional - Start thinking more about the interests of the team and not your own interests - Less useless slides and more content - Do not promote people only because you like them!

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great office space (small by Facebook standards and very cozy), friendly and talented people, exciting and meaningful work. Compensation and benefits are very good, there's free food and snacks in the office and many social activities.

    Cons

    Since many co-workers are based in the US west coast, your work day normally starts and ends later than usual. Office in the city centre means parking and commute are sometimes frustrating.
