Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Meta (Weniger als ein Jahr)
I’m still a bit new, but I have very good impressions so far. I have 10 years exp at 5+ other companies (although no other tech companies) and this is the best by a good margin.
First off, everyone is nice here! Yes, folks are ambitious, but there is a shockingly small percentage of jerks here… not sure exactly how they are weeded out, but I’m grateful for it!
Lots of small benefits and well-run systems give the overwhelming feeling that this company just generally has its sh*t together. Shuttles, good food, good internal chat and groups system, not too many meetings or emails (much better than other companies!), great tech stack and automation, etc etc.
Pretty good transparency and communication with leadership (e.g., weekly CEO/CTO Q&As). They are open to feedback and change when needed, without too much unnecessary reorg-ing and pivoting. Good examples recently are moving to annual performance reviews after years of complaints with 6-month cycle, decoupling Oculus and FB accounts, and killing facial recognition.
Comp is fantastic, and relatively standardized within levels. Engineers don’t have different titles between levels, we’re all just software engineers. This was weird at first, but is a really cool feature that discourages dumb hierarchies.
Work life balance is totally reasonable in my experience, but might be different on other teams.
Mark is great, I don’t really understand why folks dislike him externally.
Some risk with new company direction. The metaverse shift is gutsy. It seems like a reasonable move, but if it doesn’t pan out, Meta might not be the same tech giant in 10-15 years.
Like any big company, it has its share of internal koolaid/propaganda (but criticism/feedback is still welcomed and discussed openly)
The (largely overblown) negative media coverage can lead to some family and friends judging you a bit for where you work, if you care about that sort of thing.
Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Oktober 2021 bei Meta (Seattle, WA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).
Phone screen a week go.
I was able to complete 3 SQL and the 4th one I was able to get the pseudo code done, the interviewer was ok.
I was able to complete 3 python.
I got an email later to set up the onsite.
I did not get any questions from glassdoor. But the questions were not that difficult, but not as straightforward too. Even thought I was able to complete only 3 questions SQL/Python I was able to explain my thought process and debug the code when there was an error and the interviewer was very helpful and friendly.
I don't think they expect you to solve all 5 from each and neither to write one line codes for all the problems. Be clear and have a discussion with the interviewer and listen to the hints.
Good luck, will update this after my onsite.
