People are actually smart. It's a special place.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA (US)

I have been working at Facebook

ProsFacebook is a fantastic place to work. Yes, you get to work on big things, there are cool new opportunities all over the place, and there's lots of cache...but what really matters is that this is a place full of smart, engaged, and driven people. You don't have conversations at Facebook where you walk away saying "he just didn't get it." This makes every day so much better it's hard to even begin to explain.

ConsManagement is great at a lot of things...but not necessarily at manageing the business. Random stuff just happens that sometimes doesn't make sense across all aspects of the business. Often, initiatives just happen over night, without properly involving all the relevant stakeholders. Sometimes the business side of the company seems to be operating in completely different world from the engineering side.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork harder at integrating business and engineering.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Haven't seen anywhere better

Software Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Facebook


Pros: - Fast-paced environment - Easy to have a huge impact given our user base, analytics, and small number of engineers - Good compensation (especially with equity) - Very… Cons: - Very merit-based - if you're not pulling your weight, you'll be asked to leave. This it not actually a con at all if you're… Advice to Senior Management: Keep pushing the envelope. But do keep in mind the effects of external forces… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
