    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    The culture is top notch. There is a lot of impactful work here. Leadership does a great job of ensuring their teams are appreciated, motivated and in the right position to succeed. Compensation and Perks are highly competitive

    Cons

    It's a company that is very much in the weeds of social and economic challenges. It's a tricky balancing act. It almost doesn't matter what products you work on. Whether you agree or not with what's in the media - you have to be strong and focused in order to do your best work. Bottom line - it's easy to get distracted with it being a company in the middle of so many worldly issues - but this right here is the place to do your most impactful work.
