- Facebook real_zuckIt's as good as you want it to be. I work 35 hours a week and get exceeds expectations ratings. A lot of my peers work 50-60 hours and get greatly exceeds ratings. On most teams you can meet expectations and have great work life balance without too much trouble, but the company is filled with overachievers who love to work. I personally don't think so much extra work is worth the reward.
