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

Pros

- surrounded by talented coworkers everywhere
- no-nonsense environment, freedom to set your own goals, very little politics
- managers that actually understand tech, at all levels

Cons

If you're not careful, it's very easy to get sucked into the work (as you're usually doing what you like and want), pull crazy hours and burn out; good managers can detect that in advance and prevent it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to keep the awesome culture alive. Keep the hiring bar high.

    Pros

    Everyone is relied upon and valued. They expect you to be the best, which also evokes the best from you.

    Cons

    Even though they preach about having work-life balance, it is very difficult to with the amount of work needed. However, this applies to all companies that aim to run as efficiently as Facebook does.
