Fun place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The office environment is unlike any I've experienced before. Great socials, and event's, collaborative work space, and great location. The advancement could use some work, as you can get pigeonholed onto a team, but other than that I look forward to coming to work everyday.

Pros

Free food and snacks, fun office, awesome culture

Cons

Not alot of advancement, lack of cost of living wage increase

Worst place to work

They have micromanagement policy where lead is over you 24/7, the company is not organized a lot of unprofessional employees , you’ll work at Facebook which is good to put on resume and they’ll feed you Lunch , you won’t learn anything advanced as all internal tools are only accessible by META employees, the job doesn’t have flexibility to employees, salary is low compared to other same tech positions on the market, if you are looking to get familiar with technology Facebook uses then good but carrier advancing is impossible, there is not much to learn from

Meta

It's OK. Recently badly hit and the stock plummeted 20%. it will take a while for it to recover. PR issues every other month makes things exhausting. Everyone works crazy hours. Management is getting flexible with remote options... but they are cutting benefits ruthlessly. The best days of this company are over.

Stressful, depressing workplace with no future

Toxic, micromanaging managers and young, depressed kids who stay in the job because the money is good but they see no future. No energy or drive to succeed; just follow the procedure, get the work done and go home. No direction on projects; just people scrambling for quick impact for their next PSC. FTEs are never on site because of lax COVID work rules so it's all contractors pretending they are running everything. Lack of concern for worker safety as shown by recurring complaints and a few worker injuries. Best to just stay away from this place. You're not making the future; you're just helping useless managers scam lots of money for themselves with their lies and deceit.

Pros

nice money but you sell your soul

Cons

Too many to adequately list here

Special company

Meta/Facebook is a great company to work. The media narrative is pretty biased in my opinion. People really care about their work and impact on the world.

Good comp and benefits

The comp and benefits are definitely better than smaller tech companies. Sometimes the projects we work on seem to be quite small, and we are just trying to move metrics a little bit.

Pros

Comp, benefits, health insurance, time off, flexibility

Cons

Impacc for PSC, requiring vaccine boosters

Productive and fun place.

Lots to keep you busy by, always something going on. With covid, it's been difficult to maintain contact with people so they really go the extra mile to make you feel included.

Much to love, much that needs improvement

Pros:Employee centric, many resources and tools provided for managers, efforts to be inclusive and show care demonstrated daily, very supportive during COVIDCons:Constant org changes, everything is P0 without any thought to impact over activity, constant duplication of work across individuals and teams, instead of considering what needs to be solved for in terms of impact, money or headcount is immediately thrown at problems essentially making them more complicated.Opportunities:Slow down to speed up, do not reward toxic behavior from leaders, while also realizing that some people need to be managed out for teams or orgs to continue to function healthily.

Good place if you find your place

Facebook (aka Meta) is a great place to work if you want stability. Sometimes you have to grapple with its public image but if you find the right time, you can be fulfilled.

Excellent culture and company mission

Company culture encourages innovation, creativity, curiosity, and the pursuit of one's own personal development goals. Work is truly driven by the company values. Lots of growth opportunities. Management cares and wants to see you succeed. Truly an outstanding company culture that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Pros

Cool swag, flexible work schedule, positive impact in the world

Consulting company and most of the time I was the only employee.

We performed excellently on projects. The problem is that this kind of consulting is not in high demand in the Knoxville area. This operation is an extension of my work in Los Angeles, CA where the demand was high.

Pros

Freedom to accept or reject assignments.

Cons

The demand in Knoxville is low.
