Folks at Facebook, I can’t really think of a reason why joining Facebook is a good thing. I will not be advancing humanity or doing anything good to society. I can’t wake up in the morning and feel excited. Pay is good but can’t get over that feeling.

I came from a medical startup where you feel that you trying to save lives. Maybe that is why I feel this way. Please help me change how I feel.

Tc is 245 for a non tech finance role.

    There is the Social Good & Goodwill org which includes Crisis Response (the team that owns Safety Check), Charitable Giving, Health (blood donations), Mentorship and maybe more.

    Facebook is far from perfect but I would encourage you to do some research, the media definitely focuses on the worst aspects of the company and many articles are pretty misleading and exaggerated.

    If Amazon brings lower prices and Google makes life easier, then you can say in the same regard that Facebook makes it VERY easy to connect with friends and family.

      Honestly Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google have all had overall positive impacts on my life

      Journalists could easily paint any company as evil if they want to, it's all about sensationalism.

      Companies generally aren't evil, they operate to earn returns for shareholders.

    Then don’t join.
    If you think any of the for profit companies are doing good for the world then you are delusional.

      I understand that. But at least most other companies bring some good to the world. Ex: amazon brings lower prices. Google search made everybody’s life easier, etc.. I agree with OP

      Now you’re just trolling. Already had enough jokes with trump and forest fires today morning. No need for more man.

      Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha haha

      Amazon bringing lower prices is good for the world? How about how much they take from cities by tax cuts and how shitty they pay their warehouse workers such they need to rely on Medicare? Or that their drivers have to literally pee in a bottle because they can't afford the time to pull over for a bathroom break?

    This guy thinks himself as Linus and wants Zuck to beg him to come.

    Who cares if you go or not? Get off your high horse.

    Don’t join. You’re with a startup you seem to believe in and they pay you well. So they seem to believe in you, too.

    Make everyones lives simpler by not joining. Noone is here to convince you to do otherwise. And I doubt you feel good at your job. This post has “make me feel good about myself” written all over it.

    Facebook is fine. If you like it, they pay good money. If you don't, well you waste their time by interviewing and you get an offer for Google to match.

    It sounds like you're asking us to rationalize this for you: giving up on your dreams and selling out. Either sell out or don't, it's a personal decision but don't put it on anyone else to make for you.

    Don't do it. If you already don't feel it, it's going to be a drag and you'll be miserable.
