#Bootcamper. Worried about team selection because I have heard bad things about WLB, specifically about messenger and ads team. Even met a few managers who just talk about impact and delivering fast without much focus on ramping up and mentoring. Is finding a good team impossible at Facebook? Please suggest some some good teams. I don’t mind working hard every now and then but it should not be regular expectation to work on the weekends.

    Facebook. You will get fucked with a rod here. Focus on playing politics and making allies. Don't focus on engineering. Please

    It’s horrible nowadays. Managers are just trying to get their teams staffed no matter what. They’ll promise you everything to get you. Don’t be fooled. Ask directly about wlb. Ask the same each team member individually. Ask their pulse score. Don’t even think about choosing a new or inexperienced manager no matter what they promise. Clarify attrition on the team. Make sure their mission makes sense to you.
    I’ve taken risk although there were so many red flags and now I am about to leave FB. Good luck! PM me if you need more hints.

      Kinda score for various aspects of your work like how would you rate WLB, is manager good, how long are you planning to stay etc. all teams are doing it twice a year. It’s not open outside the team. It’s like 50 questions to rate. Then you can compare to your org or company. And also you can track how the team is doing.

    The Ads team is like 50 teams. You need to be more specific

      Messenger wasn't that big but it had enough subteams (and both product and infra parts, IIRC) when I was there that I'm sure it varied. And I'm sure it's even bigger now
