"Policy towards women varies so much depending on your manager. My last manager ignored systematic bullying and told me he doesn't see gender, it's all merit based *eye roll*. New manager is female and have a shocking 20% women in my org, and can feel the difference. But, discrepancies between orgs are not investigated, there are very few women in leadership roles, especially in engineering, bro culture is strong and in anonymous discussions, things like whether women are actually worse at engineering than men have been openly discussed. Doesn't do much to inspire trust in my male colleagues. Despite tons of diversity promotion, the stats have changed very little. While I realise this is endemic in the valley, it makes a lot of FB's diversity work seem hollow and more about publicity."

"This is overall a great company for women. However, with Sheryl Sandberg being the COO, you'd expect it to have all the best policies and benefits worldwide for women, and that's not necessarily the case. Optional extended maternity leave that's available in some countries outsite the US (i.e. Brazil) is not available for employees, for instance. "

"Some of the best maternity policies I've seen in the US. Amazing support for mothers with easy access parking spots and rooms for breastfeeding even at pop-up one-night events. Still, you will run into the usual set of employees looking past you or only hearing your argument after it has been repeated by a male colleague, not looking you in the eye, lower participation rates by women in groups, etc. We also need to see more women managers throughout the org."

"There are relatively few women working in engineering. Upper management seems pretty fair towards women, but individuals vary quite a bit (and you're reviewed by your peers, so that matters). There's a decent amount of company focus on avoiding bias and increasing diversity, but also a lot of blow-back from men who think that means "lowering the bar", even while management insists it does not. I suspect it's much harder for women to get promoted."

"Note: my salary was $8000/mo as an intern, but obviously my annual salary was pretty low. Also, no bonus :P I was only an intern for three months, but overall I would recommend Facebook as a good place for women to work. While it's not perfect and you experience a fair amount of micro-aggressions on a day-to-day basis, I don't think it's too different from your typical tech company. I think there is a fair amount of "over-correcting" for this, though. One of the benefits of working at Facebook for women is that there's a lot of support for female engineers, especially those who want to move up to management. Additionally, maternity leave and paternity leave are identical (4 months); Facebook is one of the few tech companies to offer this."
