Facebook?

Uber WLB
Sep 3, 2018 36 Comments

In the spirit of Labor Day, I’ve been entertaining the idea of working at Facebook. I love solving cool problems with technology but also need downtime every once in a while.

Is Facebook still a good company to work for? I’m worried I could get hired as a well paid outsider just to clean up legacy systems nobody wants to touch and will take years to build up a reputation and network to have the flexibility of upward mobility.

Am I over analyzing? What are some cool projects in the cooking?

    Facebook has a social media website and they bought some other companies otherwise haven’t seen anything cool happen from there since like 2003

      FB rentals, like apts? I feel in p2p markets, identity and trust management could be key. Do you get to find out headcount of teams during boot camp?

    Lol I deleted my previous comment, but everything I mentioned has already been discussed on Tech crunch, which I made sure. Check your sources before calling someone out.

      Hope they don't bury it on the menu. Facebook has ton of features that I even didn't know they existed. Like food delivery wtf?

    If you have an offer, ask your recruiter to put you in contact with folks the same level as you who left uber for fb. Those are good conversations to have.

    It will take years to build reputation regardless of what you work on.

    Its more like never cleaning stuff up and shipping lots of new things that are based on legacy systems passed down for years
