    Former Employee - Account Executive in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at LinkedIn full-time

    Pros

    -Free Food makes it convenient to eat lunch.
    -Learn a lot from peers
    -Benefit packages
    -Building network of high level clients
    -Guest speakers
    -Hack Days to learn of some possible new ideas

    Cons

    The higher management preach leverage leadership while the lower management don't bother to leverage those who are asking for help. They will place a cold shoulder to struggling sales reps rather than help those who are asking for help. Some of the managers have their ivy league degrees yet they don't use it to leverage others. They use their degree to have others leverage them.

    The territory and account list is not evenly distributed and fair to meet quota standards. There will be account executives who have better list of accounts and territory which will go in their favor on meeting their numbers. If you are given a territory with companies that will make a difference with meeting your numbers and how managers treat you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advise to Managers is to be more fair on your accessing AE's on their territory/ account list and the quota they have to meet. It does not seem fair that someone who handles Indio, CA is going to be judged on the same platform as someone who has San Francisco, CA.

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at LinkedIn full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -From the outside looking in, one of the most innovative, forward thinking companies in the valley.
    -Tech darling of wall street
    -Solid, visionary exec leadership who seem genuine, believable & competant
    -Transparency at the top
    -Free food and good perks

    Cons

    -Mid/lower management, (especially int he sales org) can be a BIG miss.

    -There are a few good sales managers but by and large, incompetency reigns supreme at this level. They have a sales manager with literally 2 years of sales experience, "trying" to lead tenured reps who've carried a bag for a decade. The result? Downfall of many reps due to "cultural clashes"

    -Post first week training, on boarding is nearly non-existent. Very cliquish and overall sense of negativity on the floor.

    -Little to no career development unless you're in the 23 year old crowd.

    -One of the most political environments I've encountered in my career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management is the chink in the chain hurting LinkedIn and you're losing reps at all levels, both physically and emotionally. Don't take your middle manager's words for it, try to get an ear on the ground yourself.
