      Pros

      You get to work with really positive, energetic, and smart people. The environment is incredibly supportive and flexible. However, I have heard different departments have different cultures so it depends on your luck too.

      Cons

      The line is drawn very clearly between FTEs and contingent workers. Should you choose to take on a contractual role in FB, you need to be mentally prepared that you will be treated as a "2nd class citizen" and not all FTEs will be sensitive about it as they brag about their benefits in your face.
