I have seen many people whom I would not consider very smart, making it to Facebook. Yet, Facebook is the F of FAANG. Are they really smart to be working at Facebook or is the special thing about working at Facebook is the great compensation? Just today saw the news of fb having 3 world wide outages this year, already. And the positive Glassdoor reviews seemed to be fabricated. What's so special about working at Facebook? Is it really a certificate of tech. prowess or accomplishment?
