    Pros

    Good benefits Work Culture is good in most of the aspects Free food Travel to different facebook offices Talented and Ambitious peers, push you to grow

    Cons

    While the overall experience at Facbooks is reasonably good, depending on the team, quality of projects/work may vary from excellent to pathetic. Need to bargain hard on your CTC while joining the company to safeguard your interests. Managers have absolutely NO say in your compensation and wont be able to help you even if you perform well. One should always interview for the Software Engineer position, which has slightly better pay, more opportunities to move around, different (better?) evaluation standards! If you end up in a team which has no clear charter, you are expected to find your own work while the managers would not support you with this Work life balance is average at best. You are expected to work a lot and it is more so if you want to grow to higher levels.In my opinion, people who have a strong career growth, don't have much time left and burnout often.

    Pros

    Facebook deeply cares about its employees and has built a compelling culture around support and growth. Career growth opportunities are plentiful. If you don't like the team you're on or don't get the support you want from your manger, Facebook empowers you to find new teams or projects. Facebook wants its employees to be invested in their work and to feel connected to its larger mission. If large scale opportunities and growth are important to you, Facebook is a fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    Facebook's culture is demanding and fast paced. The greatest aspect of working at Facebook is that everyone is very motivated and very smart. The problem with this is that they all expect the very same of you. Holding a very high bar for excellence can certainly be demanding so it's important to make sure you're always carefully paying attention to your own personal work/life balance.
