I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than an year)

Pros

A great place to work. Well-distributed culture of seeking impact and keeping productive which, along with a considered hiring approach, means that everyone you encounter is bright and eager to help you get things done. Low-touch management style is encouraged, with focus on growth and getting blockers out of the way.

Cons

High public visibility when you cause the site to crash. No 401(k) match. Hard to keep up with all that is going on.

    Pros

    Facebook is a true mission-driven company. Many companies pay lip service to their mission, but Facebook lives it and breathes it everyday. Zuck is totally committed to the mission of the company, leads by example, and is one of the most visionary people in our industry. The culture at Facebook is very strong, and the people here are incredibly smart and driven. We're working on huge, important problems in the world, and it's fun to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    None. I love everything about this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay true to the mission and continue to focus on the long-term.
