    I worked at LinkedIn full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    All of the previous comments about the food and the perks are true; they definitely take care of their people. The HQ is beautiful, and the new offices in Sunnyvale make you feel like you're at a ski resort. I also can't recommend the leadership highly enough; Jeff Weiner is an inspiration, and the other execs are all driving towards a shared vision. The culture and values of the company are held in high esteem and they're felt throughout the organizations.

    I had the opportunity to see, meet, and interact with some of the most intelligent and successful people I've ever been around -- both other employees and people from the outside. LinkedIn brings in great guest speakers. The employee experience itself is awesome.

    I also am now able to use the LInkedIn name to do pretty much anything.

    I was part of the Global Sales Org, and while LinkedIn's not slowing down any time soon, it's not for everyone. It's easier to sell LinkedIn products because of the name recognition, but the sales culture needs work.

    Cons

    Theres an IV-drip of Kool-Aid in everyone's arm within 2 weeks of joining the company. You will likely be called out for disagreeing or bringing up any major changes. This gets tiring after a while.

    The Sales org as a whole has good leadership in Mike Gamson, but the more down the ranks you guy the more egotism and BS you'll run into.

    Also, don't expect meeting 100% of expectations to be even remotely close to enough to get you anywhere. Not only are the expectations high, but there will be people who are working twice as many hours as you, getting in way earlier, and achieving the same things, and thus looking better than you. There's a culture of working long hours even after the sting by the department of labor, and there were no managerial efforts to curb this. In fact, during meetings people would be praised as "rockstars" for being the "earliest to arrive" and the "last to leave." little work-life balance. Oh, you'll also be underpaid if you start in Sales Development.

    They also have a trend of hiring a ton of really smart, motivated people from "target schools" (read: Ivy League and Stanford) and then not really giving them with anywhere to go after their first year or so. I can see this ultimately leading to frustration and burn-out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you're balancing the number and type of young "rockstars" with the number and type of opportunities you have for them down the road. Or better set expectations. Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing with the culture and values.
