Suggestions for improvement

  • Again, I think they could do with better managing work from home positions and expanding them further into positions already worked in the office.

What I like about the company

They have excellent benefits, including medical, dental, and vision, you can take free company buses to and from work, and there are additional perks like free company lunches/snacks/cafeterias. My boss has been very engaging and understanding and may already be my favorite boss I've had so far, honestly. The team I work with is excellent, as well, and I've made some genuine friends there, as opposed to just people I tolerate for work's sake.

What I dislike about the company

They could probably allow more work from home opportunities for people with my position, as it would be both practical and easy to manage. I'm honestly unsure why they don't, already.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Ah, well, as I said, probably a lot of people could be saved time, money, stress, and effort if they'd just allow more of us to work from home when possible.

What I like about the company

I mean, I've never worked for a company that has benefits as good as facebook does. If you don't drive, they have shuttles you can take to work for free (or, if you do drive, free parking on site). Anything food or drink related you can get for free, somewhere on campus, and they have both good and healthy options available. I have pretty strict dietary needs, due to a genetic disorder, and even I can find something satisfying to eat. Not to mention their health/dental/vision plans, which are genuinely good and not the joke coverage you get with most employers, these days. Plus 401k (and matching)/stock options/etc., etc. Oh, and if you happen to be into telephone booths, they have a museum. I've not visited it, myself, but just knowing it exists somewhere on campus does tickle me, every time I think of it.

What I dislike about the company

Honestly, everything I do could easily be done working from home. I've heard this from coworkers in other positions, too. Probably everyone could save some time and money if there were more jobs with a work from home arrangement.
