      Pros

      Bottom up company which give individuals much power. Need to be and can be proactive to get the most out of the company.

      Cons

      Due to its freeness, it can feel a bit disorganized. Due to large number of employees need to work on visibility whilst working hard.

      Pros

      1. Expect lots of wonderful, smart and friendly people 2. Travel to different facebook offices and overseas offsites 3. Good ecommerce and retailer linkage 4. Lots of internal resources and materials 5. Great food, snacks, wonderful insurance coverage, paternity and maternity leave 6. Plenty of avenues to highlight your good work and show and tell

      Cons

      1. Big company with inefficiencies 2. Staff benefits could be better, compared to other industries (transport, flexi, etc) 3. Not all managers will lead, mentor or protect the team. Manager encountered saw most feedbacks as problems, rather than understanding reasons that led to this (politics, gaps from org changes, etc) and solving it with you. 4. Sharing with clients that KPI is not tied to sales. When feedbacks from sales team are most crucial to performance reviews. 5. Advertising is the main source of revenue. 6. Too many product changes in the past months. Clients may not be able to keep up or as interested to do so

      Prefer the Software Engineer role instead

      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.

      Great benefits, impact driven , US-centric organisation

      Pros

      Great benefits all around for healthcare (physical and mental health), maternity, benefits, flexi-benefits etc. Flexible working environment with lots of support especially during the COVID-19 work from home period. Increased emphasis on diversity and inclusion efforts. High growth mode in Asia Pacific.

      Cons

      Facebook is still very much US-centric in many ways- global strategies are largely built in the US/ scaled from the US. Headcount growth, career mobility opportunities are largely skewed to the US despite Asia Pacific being one of the fastest growing markets and contributing significantly to the company's performance. A fast moving, impact driven mode of working where people are evaluated every six months may cause stress/ poor work-life balance to some, may result in leaving people behind who think and execute and show impact in diverse ways, or cause managers and ICs to place emphasis on shipping/recognising short-term output and invest less in long-term, thoughtful, intentional work.
