Working at Facebook

Among the positives that most employees have highlighted about working for the Menlo Park company, there are a few the autonomy in their work, the many company benefits offered, the fact that you can work with it well-established teams and the satisfaction to work on products that are used by millions of people worldwide.

The main negative aspects are the fact that the company is often In the spotlight the press, due to the issue of data protection or the systems used to store and transmit large amounts of data to third-party companies, the lack of action on the part of managers in relation to the Social platform problems and Doubts about the future direction of the company after the presentation of the new company Meta.

Following the Cambridge Analytica case in 2018, Meta has come under renewed criticism this summer after a former employee, Frances Haugen, published thousands of pages of internal research into how its products are affecting users.

These data protection issues, with requests from regulators and parliamentary committees for clarification by top management, have certainly contributed to: a tense atmosphere in the company itself, among employees who are beginning to doubt the future of the company itself.

Facebook’s name change after renewed interest in the world of the Metaverse is perhaps also an attempt to break away from the past of scandals and litigation linked to the sensitive issue of processing personal data of millions of users , in its possession.

Facebook looking for staff

Significantly, the first major drop in Glassdoor’s ranking from #1 to #7 happened precisely in 2018, when the first data transfer scandals erupted. Since then, Facebook has been unable to climb back up.

After deciding to focus on new business, a campaign by blanket recruitment of the best human resources, which is in force at its main competitors, notably Microsoft and Apple, also began.

The Glassdoor ranking is based solely on American companies with at least 1,000 employees as a reference and is created after conducting a series of interviews with a representative sample of employees. A score from 1 to 5 is then awarded based on the answers. Facebook scored 4.3 compared to 4.7 for the top company.
