an evolving company with opportunities for those that strive for excellence

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Mountain View, CA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA

Pros

opportunities to transform your career are very real
innovative views on our people strategy or opportunity come from places other than HR
it is a company that truly cares and appreciates its people
growth = opportunity

Cons

the talent strategy is a little stale
need an innovative approach to attracting and retaining engineering talent (some great engineers seem to get turned down)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

ensure the company execs and leaders get up from the armchair of Mt View to really make the "global" corporate vision of LinkedIn a reality

    Thank you for maintaining the small business feel even as we have scaled.
    On all levels, keep up the great work!
