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.

Every time they talk about hiring more women, they frame it as "lowering the bar". I have never worked anywhere with such a low ratio in my engineering department.

Prepare to be perfect. If you're perfect, this is a great place to be. If not, best of luck.

If you're in Engineering, be prepared to Lean In and make an extra effort to counteract the "brogrammer" culture that, in my opinion, is still subtly pervasive. Outside of Eng, it really depends on the org you're a member of.

I have worked here for nearly 5 years. In my experience, my gender has never been a consideration to how I operate, am perceived or have been developed...I have had incredible opportunities based on merit and hardwork.

My very first team at this company was 50% women, which is unheard of anywhere else, but not an uncommon thing here. I don't about pay, but women are highly respected and often treated better than men at this company.

I worked there for over five years and have no regrets. It was the most stimulating and impactful job I'll probably ever have. Constant availability was expected, and you only had work-life balance if work was your life... but when your job impacts over a billion people, that's probably reasonable.
