    "Fast paced company with high expectations, but incredibly fair. You won't a place that cares more about it's people."

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan bij Facebook (Langer dan een jaar)

    Pluspunten

    - 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

    Minpunten

    - 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.

    Keep doing what you're doing, keep an eye on employee burnout, keep supporting your people and keep pushing them, and the rest of the world, forward.

    I'm a 55 year old working in a company where the average age is 28, and I've never been happier. I have always wanted to work in a company where I wasn't the proverbial square peg, and after nearly 30 years in the work force, I believe that I have found the company that complements my ideology for how a company should operate. Here are the "Pros" as I see them...

    - Leadership: Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Chris Cox and the rest of the leadership team. Inspiring, smart and totally real.
    - The Culture: The openness is a real thing, we're trusted to do the right thing, mistakes are expected, being yourself is important and encouraged, humility is encouraged and expected, building trust is paramount, the mission of making the world a more open and connected place isn't just a cool phrase because it guides everything. It's not about us, it's about everyone else.
    - The People: Smart and nice is what I find. The diversity is better than any other company I've worked at and it's getting better. Those that are figuring out how to make what we do better for everyone are really good at implementing their ideas. Two years ago I didn't know what this company really was or if it had a secure future. I can clearly see now that they have what it takes to last, and it's sincere.
    - Management: Managers are hired because they're good managers and not because they're good at something else. The management track is different than the contributor track and they're equal in importance.
    - Benefits: Working in the Valley it's hard to differentiate all the benefits employees receive and Facebook is at least equal to all the major tech companies, but coming from Seattle the benefits are nothing short of incredible.

    Granted, I haven't been with the company for very long and I'm still in the honeymoon period, but I can tell what's real and what's not; this place is for real.

    Minpunten

    Like any tech company, the work is big and complicated so work/life balance can suffer from time to time. The difference is that it's the passion within the individuals that drives them to work long hours and forego time off. Of course there can be times when schedule demands force the imbalance, but it's not such that 10-12 hours days become commonplace and expected regardless. We do what we do to get the job done; no one is killing themselves because there's an order to do so.

    Being able to eat to your hearts/stomachs content can be dangerous to the waistline, but that's a self-control thing and not the company's issue.

    Advies aan management

    Keep doing what you're doing and fight hard to not be complacent. I believe that humility is the key so don't ever lose that thinking. Your motives will always be suspect, but if you're able to look in the mirror everyday and know that your motives are pure, that's all that matters. Walking the talk is the best evidence there is.

    Pluspunten

    all the industry perks (food, 401k matching, shuttles, etc.). Smart colleagues to learn from and work with.

    Minpunten

    It’s just awful inside FB and no one seems to be talking about it. The company is full of self-inflicted wounds and senior leadership (Mark, Sheryl) live in an absolute impenetrable bubble of privilege and cluelessness. Performance review process is painful and horribly biased and downright unprofessional. The company values intellect over being decent people and that’s led to the place being riddled with smart jerks. Senior management continuously surprised when employees vocally call out their callousness and ineptitude. It’s painful to watch and painful to work there.

    I don’t think any advice I could give you would help. Many people are very unhappy.

    Pluspunten

    • Work Life balance
    • Shuttles that will take you just about anywhere in the bay area
    • Fast culture that allows mistakes as long as you continue to move forward
    • So many diverse opportunities
    • Ability to apply to transition roles if yours isn't working out
    • Amazing benefits for Full Time Employees including free food, stipends for gym memberships & free dry cleaning
    • Open line of communication available to any level employee

    Minpunten

    • Contractors are expected to act like full time employees in every facet of the job EXCEPT the benefits
    • Some managers could use management training to better handle sensitive information like peer reviews
    • People forget they work with each other, and forget to treat one another with respect on shuttles

    Advies aan management

    Be upfront with your contractors about head count. If you know they won't be a conversion, have that conversation early on. Also, just because we are an open company, doesn't mean you need to give fast feedback or have crucial conversations in public spaces. I've seen 3-4 managers giving really tough feedback in very public areas.

    - Great colleagues

    - Strong product
    - Transparency

    Minpunten

    - Sometimes, the media attention gets overwhelming
    - With too many employees, politics has started
    - If you are in Ireland, be prepared to be surrounded by incompetent employees because no non-Irish wants to work in Ireland, so the under-qualified Irish get the jobs (and promotions because they are going to be there for long-term).

    Tax saving is fine, but review your talent pool at your Dublin office.

    Pluspunten

    Every single one of my colleagues is stunningly sharp, quick-witted, personable, and caring. The perks are endless including the DELICIOUS food our kitchens produce all day (though the extra weight I've gained may be a con). We all work hard but are continuously celebrated and recognized for our contributions. Best place I've ever worked.

    Minpunten

    Some of the goals may be ambiguous. This leaves room for you to determine your own career trajectory & how to accomplish your goals which is a positive but I, personally, find that a bit difficult as there is not one clear path to success to follow.

    Appreciate the transparency and the care you show for employees.
