Friend of mine from east coast recently interviewed at Facebook. When we met over dinner, I asked her what dept. she interviewed at. She said the one that deals with user interaction — or customer support. So I asked her why, knowing her major and interest is math. She tells me at Facebook, within 3-6 months you move up the ladder to the position of your interest. I've never worked at Facebook or any other big corp. so I thought may be that is how it works. Now I'm not so sure after reading about Google. Should my friend be concerned?
We'd like to assuage these concerns — partially.
On the other hand, two reasons to lift up your chin: One is spelled I-P-O. The other? Facebook's ultimate frisbee dominance over Google. See below for a second, larger picture of Facebook's annual Games Day intramurals event in 2007. One in which Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg looks less lonely.
