    Pros

    This is a very accommodating employer that really gives back to its employers. I never feel like I'm going to work on a Monday. As long as you're being impactful, you'll be recognized for your efforts.

    Cons

    This company moves to fast that it is sometimes hard to keep up with all the changes and how it may affect what your responsibilities.

    Former Employee - Human Operations Analyst in Austin, TX (US)

    Pros

    Very good way to launch a career. Very mission driven company that has lots of benefits. Highly recommended for someone about to graduate or post-graduate in their first year.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is not exactly the most professional, but I suppose that makes sense as it does fit the overall vibe of Austin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I honestly have nothing but positive things to say about my experience there as well as the managers that I worked with! Highly recommended job.

    Pros

    The offices and co-workers were great and really friendly, and there was a great sense of energy.

    Cons

    Sometimes there seemed to be a lack of clear direction and communication between offices, which may have been because of language barriers

    Pros

    Great place to work and get things done, tons of energy, no obstacles to creativity, very, very, very talented people

    Cons

    Do not even consider a full-time role here if you are over 40. The average employee is very young, and doesn't know how to treat more senior people with anything more than patronizing, sophomoric arrogance, you know: "You might think you've done this before and know what you're doing, but even though I've never done it before I'm going to be able to do it better than you." The company is lucky that it is being buoyed by ad revenue, which makes up for a lot of short sightedness when it comes to management and the efficiency brought by experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up to a truly diverse workforce that is designing social networking tools for the whole world, not just for the people who work at Facebook today.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, and there are some very smart an engaging people

    Cons

    Many departments within Facebook have a maturity problem. If, you are 40 or older, I would not apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ms. Sandburg as the COO needs to evaluate the lack of maturity of those who surround her...the lack of experience is going to cost Facebook potential law suits and brand reputation
