    Former Employee - Recruiter in Menlo Park, CA
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Facebook full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good pay - Nice, smart people - You have support for everything. There is a team at Facebook for referrals, DEI, recruiting tools, compensation, immigration, etc. If you need something, there is definitely a team for it. This is a pro and a con. - Worked here for 4 years and genuinely felt like my manager had my back.

    Cons

    - Large, convoluted teams. There are so many recruiting support teams that you don't know who to turn to for help at times. Also, there are times when I can manage something myself, but am forced to hand it over to a supporting team because it's "their job". - They place a huge emphasis on doing recruiting projects. If you're not doing a recruiting project, forget about being promoted. Doing excellent recruiting and closing lots of roles is NOT enough. This emphasis on project work leads to people literally making up meaningless projects just to say they're doing extra work. It's a part of the culture that really needs to change.
