    The best offer I've ever got was from Facebook, and I passed on it. I feel like Google/Amazon/Microsoft will be there at least for two decades, while Facebook can get MySpace'd in 5. There's a reason why they're lobbying so hard for regulations right now.

    I don't want to be a part of a sinking ship.

      Do enlighten me please. What do they create? Photos of your friends? Ads for Nike? News stories for CNN?

      Sorry but when Facebook takes pictures posted by my friends to do some collage about the previous years, it is indeed creating content, when you have post with a birthday cake to remind me to wish happy birthday to a friend, it's not my friend who created this content either, etc, Facebook does create content as well

      No need to be sorry, you are right that aggregation is creation. My bad. The point was that is what 1% (if that) of your total content?

    Facebook has amazing work culture and despite what blind thinks, Facebook users are not going anywhere. Stay there!

    Come to Uber! We offer fast paced environment with decent WLB. Also comp is not as good as FB but decent.

    Left for OCI

    • Amazon 63784747
      How reasonable/fast/responsive/aggressive is OCI in terms of rewarding for good performance after joining?

      Assume none of that. Negotiate hard on the initial offer then assume it stays flat

    Facebook is really well paid but other companies have much better Work Life Balance.

    The folks I know who have left make about 80% of the comp but work significantly less hours.

    Facebooks hiring practices for non engineering roles at least in Seattle is pure nepotism....if you were my friend in our previous company, you get a job. Looking at many of the people there with their titles is mind blowing how under qualified and over paid their culture is.

    Facebook: be my best friend and I’ll hire you

      Did you recently failed an interview? 😜

    • Amazon wosncb
      No, never interviewed or applied. I just know a lot of people there that are all friends from previous companies and their roles at FB they wouldn’t be in elsewhere
