One of the best places to work, period.

Best work experience I've ever had. Onboarding is thorough. You choose when you are done and can choose your team. People are talented and kind, so it's easy to learn new things. Developer experience is unreal. Internal tools are great, creating a new dev instance is a breeze. All code is available.

Good place to work but have to consider about impact all the time

The work is meaningful and can be used by millions of users, which would make you satisfied. However, since it's a social media company, employees are forced to post in the internal workplace to talk about their impacts to increase visibility, which might be a con for someone who prefers other ways.
