#10 "For six weeks out of the year, I'm on 24/7 on-call duty."

Every year, for six weeks, Facebook puts engineers on on-call duty; where they are responsible for keeping the service up and running, come what may. "For those weeks I don't leave town on the weekend; make especially sure not to have 'one too many' at any social gatherings I attend; and most importantly, carry and immediately respond to a charged phone where I can be reached 24/7, including leaving the ringer on on the nightstand as I sleep." - Keith Adams, Facebook engineer.
