By far the best situation going these days that I know of

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Recruiter in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Recruiter in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

Culture, values, vision, coworkers, management, transparency, food, drinks, benefits, time off, holidays-13+ per year, company wide shutdown between Christmas and New Years, office locations, flexibility to work from home, etc.. It really does go on and on

Cons

I've been here for a year and a half and still haven't found a CON other than if you wear any swag out on the street, on a train, in an airport, or on a plane- everyone has questions about the company and what we are doing next.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the vision alive and NEXT PLAY!!

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training
    Better treatment to contractors
