Pros

The senior leadership of LinkedIn care a lot about culture and values. In fact every time they speak it is to draw the connection between the day to day with what we value as a company. The growth has been crazy and things are fast and loose as we figure out new space and continue to execute. I love working with so many people that are also working their dream job. You can feel it when you come to work each day.

Cons

If you like process, structure, and careful decision making you'll be disappointed. Also, we are no longer as agile as we used to be, but we try to be. It is a public company, but it doesn't yet feel that way. It will get there eventually though.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the small company feel. It is a special place to work.

    Pros

    Big ideas welcome, easy to get leadership support for projects/ideas. Solid executive team focused on long term vision of the company.

    Cons

    Starting to get to the point where it feels like a big company. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but the startup feel starts to wear off when you're ~2,500 employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on the on the long term vision, but be mindful of day to day challenges.

    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
