    Pros

    LinkedIn functions with a very clear vision and mission. We provide economic opportunity for the global workforce. Our teams live the LinkedIn culture and values and our engagement is incredibly high.

    Cons

    Having worked at LinkedIn for 18 months I have nothing to add. The company is amazing. I wish more of my previous colleagues could work with me to feel how good this experience is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! Thanks for demonstrating the standard and holding us accountable to the standard.

    Pros

    No competitor on the professional network area. Globalization could be another power booster to make LinkedIn double value. Cutting edge technology, great people, nice culture, have fun.

    Cons

    I just LinkedIn for 2 month, so far, didn't see any cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep to maintain the current trend
