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

    Pros

    - Incredible benefits - Excellent compensation that rewards strong performance - Lots of autonomy - Tons of room for growth - Very transparent from the top down - Strong leadership - Intelligent and caring colleagues - The most fair and well thought out review process you will find everywhere - Exciting work

    Cons

    - If you don't learn to make the work life balance work for you, it can be exhausting. But you'll also be given lots of support with this if you ask for it. - It doesn't matter how good you are at your job, chances are you're going to be surrounded by a ton of other people who are just as good if not better. Imposter syndrome is real, but if you got an offer, you probably belong here too.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The company has had its rough share of negative media, but internally I find it a great company to work for. Leadership encourages open conversation, managers truly care about my career progression, and I've always felt supported

    Cons

    Given the "move fast" culture, there isn't an emphasis on documentation which can be a bit frustrating at times when you're searching for something. The work/life balance and support level seems to be pretty dependent on which team you join as well
