I am having a conversation with one FB recruiter who wants me to apply for a job at FB Infra. There are several positions that match my experience - Linux kernel, hardware bring up, firmware dev...
I want to learn more about this group. What is the culture there? Are their projects fun or boring? Any team recommendations and anti-recomendations? Anything else to know before applying there?
Targeted level is E5

Unrelated to the ethical issues, the main issue I got with their infra is that they don't use a single upstream project. The decided they are too smart and rewrite everything standard into their own stack. You will come out of there not knowing anything that the industry considers as standard.
