I have been working at Facebook full-time (less than an 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

    I worked at Facebook as an intern

    Pros

    Everyone tries their best to help you have the best experience as an intern in the company.

    Cons

    The free and tasty food (especially deserts) really didn't help me keep very fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love the culture of openness at Facebook and I'd love to see that it was maintained even when Facebook grows larger.
