Don't want to go into too much detail about what happens at one of these offices, but to put it in a nutshell, words almost can't describe how much I appreciate the opportunity to work with this company. It is definitely an experience that I will never forget.
Exciting opportunities with a view into high level work
Product Data Integrity Contractor (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – April 20, 2016
Facebook onsite with PROUnlimited was an excellent opportunity into viewing corporate work life. It gave an inside view of how larger companies work together to create a product that is end-user driven. The culture is also top notch as they push to have users experience and attempt new ideas. They certainly strive to set the bar higher for new entrants and individuals seeking a challenging work place.
Free lunches, strong support staff, safety, excellent culture
Contracted for temporary positions with 1-year limits
Public Content (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – April 4, 2016
It was a great place to work because of the culture. The work becomes routine, and they don't promote much from within. It still tries to function like a startup instead of the tech juggernaut that it is.
Free food, meet awesome people, great coworkers
Routine, insanely long commute if you don't live right by campus
Marketing Expertise Customer Support (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 1, 2016
Facebook was a great place to work, I was very disappointed when my contract ended. The Co-Workers and Managers were awesome, everyone got a long and everyone wanted what is best for the customers. Helping customers place ads with Facebook was a true learning experience.
Besides the food, and the fact that you can pretty much wear whatever you want working at facebook is just a glorified boring office job. Pressing the enter button all day and constantly worrying about numbers.
menu items for 3,000 Facebook employees in fast-paced environment
Flagship Contractor (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – March 4, 2016
Was able to learn from a wide array of Chefs from different backgrounds and expand upon my culinary career in a large institutional kitchen setting. Opportunities to create eight item menus based upon a theme or region and execute your personal menu for a large group of patrons. It also forced you to be quick on your feet and adapt to changing environment. For example, if you had a popular dish and it was running low, you had to be prepared to come up with a substitute dish on the fly. Also very informative to learn how large scale kitchen production works.
Facilities Engineer (Current Employee) – Prineville, OR – January 26, 2016
Lots of back stabbimg, a lot like being paid to be in highschool. Management didn't seem to know answers to questions they should have. Other employees seemed very incompetent while others seemed held back in their current position. Facebook is a young company and it shows. Google or apple would be a much better place to start out in the tech world.
Assistant Campus Manager (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – January 12, 2016
The company number one priority was to ensure all employee's needs were taken care of. They went above and beyond any expectation of a employer. Employees were also enthusiastic about their chance to work at an excellent company.
Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – November 4, 2015
I learned a lot of things here in Facebook. So I think it is very good for new-grads. But I think the work/life balance it not that good in Facebook, people spend so much time building features but less time thinking before start.
