      Almost a real utopia

      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.

      Pros

      - Great benefits - food, nice office, snacks, entertainment, transport fees, etc. - Smart people who are motivated and gets thing done quickly. - Little to no politics - Your work is meaningful and impactful even as an intern - Open communication - HR and office culture are 30 years ahead of everyone else

      Cons

      - Might be a bit tough if you're an introvert like me, you need to be more open and talk to a lot more people to learn (totally my fault) - Might feel work is not as impactful depending on role

      Best company to work for

      Pros

      This is one of the best company I worked for in my 25year career. Extremely employee focussed, great benefits and caring. Work culture is very competitive, surrounded by very smart people and always one need to up the game to keep up. There are tons of opportunities to learn, grow and prosper. It is always motivating to work in a place where the product helps billions of people around the world.

      Cons

      Salary may not be astronomically high compared to other bigwigs, yearly salary raise is lower too.

      Great company to work for!

      Pros

      Overall, my experience working at Facebook was awesome. Lot of smart people, interesting projects, dynamic company, great leadership, great perks, etc. I really liked feeling that we're all in the same boat, one huge team working on a common objective.

      Cons

      If you get a bad manager it can be hard to deal with. The commute is a pain if you live in SF. The shuttles are great, it's just that the 101 gets worse everyday. But of course, at least is closer than Google or other companies. The company is growing fast, so it's getting harder to have a lot of impact.
