Facebook has over 1700 Jobs: Here is How to Get a Job at Facebook

With 2.13 billion monthly active users globally Facebook is the largest country in the world.  Every month more people visit Facebook than are in China or India.  According to Pew Internet over 52% of the entire population of the US uses Facebook every day.

Those working at Facebook are working for a very global company.  90% of Facebook users are not even located in the United States.

With over 25,000 employees and over 1,700 open jobs the competition is fierce.

But What About Declining Time on the Facebook Site?

With the recent change in the content shown in user’s newsfeeds and the talk of Social Media addiction Facebook has seen some decline in time spent.  However with revenues of $13 billion dollars per quarter or over $50 Billion Dollars per year, Facebook has plenty of resources to draw from to find ways to improve.  They also employ some of the smartest engineers in the world.

Most likely Facebook will find ways to grow their user interactions over time that far surpasses what they have now.

What do Facebook Employees Really Think about Facebook?

Facebook employees like their jobs and their company.

99% of the employees approve of the CEO and rate the company 4.6 of 5 stars, both some of the highest ratings on the platform according to Glassdoor.com.

So let’s start with the cons…

231 reviews said that “Work life balance is pretty tough to maintain” indicating that one has to work hard and get results.

Here is what one reviewer said about the work life balance…

“If you don’t learn to make the work life balance work for you, it can be exhausting. But you’ll also be given lots of support with this if you ask for it.

– It doesn’t matter how good you are at your job, chances are you’re going to be surrounded by a ton of other people who are just as good if not better. Imposter syndrome is real, but if you got an offer, you probably belong here too.” 

However the same reviewer also said… 

“Incredible benefits, excellent compensation that rewards strong performance. Lots of autonomy,  Tons of room for growth,  Very transparent from the top down, Strong leadership,  Intelligent and caring colleagues

The most fair and well thought out review process you will find everywhere and most importantly Exciting work” 

But I’m over 30 could I work at Facebook? 

“I’m a 55 year old working in a company where the average age is 28, and I’ve never been happier. I have always wanted to work in a company where I wasn’t the proverbial square peg, and after nearly 30 years in the work force, I believe that I have found the company that complements my ideology for how a company should operate. Here are the “Pros” as I see them…

– Leadership: Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Chris Cox and the rest of the leadership team. Inspiring, smart and totally real.

– The Culture: The openness is a real thing, we’re trusted to do the right thing, mistakes are expected, being yourself is important and encouraged, humility is encouraged and expected, building trust is paramount, the mission of making the world a more open and connected place isn’t just a cool phrase because it guides everything. It’s not about us, it’s about everyone else.

– The People: Smart and nice is what I find. The diversity is better than any other company I’ve worked at and it’s getting better. Those that are figuring out how to make what we do better for everyone are really good at implementing their ideas. Two years ago I didn’t know what this company really was or if it had a secure future. I can clearly see now that they have what it takes to last, and it’s sincere.

– Management: Managers are hired because they’re good managers and not because they’re good at something else. The management track is different than the contributor track and they’re equal in importance.

– Benefits: Working in the Valley it’s hard to differentiate all the benefits employees receive and Facebook is at least equal to all the major tech companies, but coming from Seattle the benefits are nothing short of incredible.

Granted, I haven’t been with the company for very long and I’m still in the honeymoon period, but I can tell what’s real and what’s not; this place is for real. 

Cons 

Like any tech company, the work is big and complicated so work/life balance can suffer from time to time. The difference is that it’s the passion within the individuals that drives them to work long hours and forego time off. Of course there can be times when schedule demands force the imbalance, but it’s not such that 10-12 hours days become commonplace and expected regardless. We do what we do to get the job done;” 

But How Do I get a Job at Facebook? 

Scour your LinkedIn contacts for people working in Facebook in the areas you are interested.  Even if you do not have direct or 2nd level contacts there, LinkedIn is still a great place to send a message from for advice. Contact people for advice letting them know of your experience and accomplishments. See if you can find a few people who will get on a call with you or at least email.  This is a great way for them to get to know you and your successes.  Remember nothing beats an internal referral for a job.

Also on LinkedIn you should send a shout out to your friends to see who knows people at Facebook. Sometimes you can find that through your contacts 2nd and 3rd connections but sometimes connected people are not necessarily connected on LinkedIn.

And don’t forget about Facebook.  See who your friends are connected to on Facebook. You can actually do a search on Facebook for friends who work at Facebook.  Similarly to LinkedIn, Facebook can also help you find those who can refer you.  But always ask for advice not for a job.

Good luck in your job search and do let us know if you land that job at Facebook!
