    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    Friendly people, friendly managers. Amazing company and products. Excited to be part of such an amazing organization. Friendly work culture and collaboration environment. Very good infrastructure and tooling. Great perks. Good upper management.

    Cons

    Competitive, stressful and high pressure working environment. Subpar communication. Bottom up management is challenging. Middle level program and project management totally lacking. Communication in a COVID-19 WFH environment challenging when the work culture historically was office based. Instability is normal: releasing to production and taking risks is actively encouraged. The codebase is in places low quality. The majority of the documentation is outdated and therefore unusable. High turnover of staff means little continuity; the only people who stay long enough usually end up so stressed that you have to deal with people barely being able to function due to burnout.
