    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Facebook deeply cares about its employees and has built a compelling culture around support and growth. Career growth opportunities are plentiful. If you don't like the team you're on or don't get the support you want from your manger, Facebook empowers you to find new teams or projects. Facebook wants its employees to be invested in their work and to feel connected to its larger mission. If large scale opportunities and growth are important to you, Facebook is a fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    Facebook's culture is demanding and fast paced. The greatest aspect of working at Facebook is that everyone is very motivated and very smart. The problem with this is that they all expect the very same of you. Holding a very high bar for excellence can certainly be demanding so it's important to make sure you're always carefully paying attention to your own personal work/life balance.

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

    Pros

    In areas of transparency, caring about talents, moving fast, and innovate with true results... best company I've worked for.

    Cons

    Constant scrutiny from media with magnifying glasses (without sufficient fairness)... not an issue from within but from the external environments.

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

    Pros

    I've been working at FB for a little over 4 months. I can't believe how accommodating and helpful my entire org has been at welcoming me to the team. It's tough leaving one job for another and but the support that you get, the inclusiveness, and the overall willingness of everyone to help you onboard is honestly a great feeling. It feels like everyone wants you to succeed and that everyone buys into the idea that there's enough sunshine to go around. I've never been at a company with those values.

    Cons

    Onboarding is tough. Be prepared to spend a lot of time reading and playing catch up. Expectations are high to move fast, so join prepared to hit the ground running.

    I worked at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    Well funded, lots of resources, focus on engineering.

    Cons

    Organization is a challenge, senior people fighting for the the best reviews (which trigger significant payouts). Rigorous performance management process which has many flaws (politics, anecdotal discussions, selective review collection).
