    - Onsite Gym avaialble
    - Very good fitness website for employees
    - Mac book air for every new joinee, good VPN connection

    Cons

    - Tooo tooo too much of work that work life balance is very bad
    - Too much of politics.
    - People at senior positions are not well qualified
    - No extra participation for contractors allowed, but they have to work overtime without fair compensation
    - There are no trainings like leadership, team building, tools learning etc
    - It was an automation position. Mostly coding questions were asked in interview but the work was 90% manual.
    - No team building activities, no good team outing, if they are they are very badly organized. So the atmosphere overall is very stressful
    - When u have to work over the weekend, no one cares about your food or comfort. They just want you to work, work and work.

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    co-workers, career opps, global collaboration, free food, culture, innovation, previewing the latest products before launch, feedback is appreciated by management

    Cons

    rapid change within the company often does not get communicated well to all teams which leads to temporary confusion about new procedures, products, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue finding better ways to keep everyone on the same page within departments.
