One of the best places to work

Software Engineer V (Current Employee)
Menlo Park, CA (US)

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

Pros- you can choose your team, and, later, you can change it;
- the company is a significant contributor to open source;
- there are lots of smart people around you;
- plenty of perks (great and varied food, company shuttles, public transportation, bike repair, laundry & dry cleaning, banking, ...)
- powerful hardware to develop on

Cons- no 401(k) matching;
- some teams work around the clock;
- things are constantly changing in the development process;
- preference for "generalists", who know a little bit of everything and nothing particularly well; it might be hard for "specialists" to find a good team that favors depth vs breadth

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Brand, product and people

Non-engineer (Current Employee)

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


Pros: - Huge Brand - Arguably the biggest brand name in the tech world to work for. You realize this when people discover that you work… Cons: - Politics in international HQ - It's quite natural, but Irish seem to favor Irish because they realize that they are going to work together… Advice to Senior Management: Try to balance the culture of instant glorification. This is leading to an environment where people are concerned only about short term projects because that's… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
