Here's What It's Really Like to Work for Facebook
You probably are on it, live for it, can’t stop going on it—but what if you could work for it?
Yup—I’m talking about Facebook.
Facebook is at the center of people sharing interests, forming new relationships, and unifying populations to make the world a smaller, friendlier place. Since 2004, it has been critical in changing how people communicate, designing products and delivering services that create a more human world, one connection at a time. With a mission to make the world more open and connected, Facebook is just getting started and includes a family of brands like Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus, Messenger, Internet.org, LiveRail, and Parse.
Facebook deeply invests in the professional advancement and well being of its employees. In addition to receiving career guidance and quality training for futures at Facebook and beyond, employees have the flexibility to set personalized work schedules, and the company measures progress by impact—not hours.
"People at Facebook are encouraged to be really open and bring their whole self when they come to work,” says Caitlin Kalinowski, Head of Product Design Engineering at Oculus.
Connecting communities online and teams on-site, Facebook often unites employees for friendly fun—planning company scavenger hunts, sailing, ski trip events, and more!
