Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA

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

Pros

There's a positive, inspirational culture and you work with some amazing people. Creativity is encouraged, and you can move around a lot. There isn't a hierarchical feeling. People are open to new ideas and dialogue.

Cons

It's hard to get a sense of strategic direction from Product leaders. It can be challenging to collaborate across product teams. People who like a lot of structure and certainty are likely to be unhappy here.

    Pros

    Great benefits for a large, public company...FREE FOOD...you will be surrounded by super-driven peers, and led by forward thinking and highly capable management.

    Cons

    LinkedIn does solve a real need/problem out there (how to attract, recruit the best talent AND how to best target your audience to market/sell) ....and LinkedIn is leaps and bounds ahead of any "competitor" (though there is really no apples-to-apples comparison), but it runs into the challenge of retaining their top sales people because of how "straight-forward" the sale is relative to other tech-sales roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! Pay special attention to your own talent by consistently challenging and rewarding your top performers.

    Great Company Culture, Huge Growth Potential, Needs Good Middle Managers

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at LinkedIn full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Great company culture focused on continuous innovation
    * Smart, dedicated and motivated employees
    * Open transparent executive team
    * Employee friendly

    Cons

    * For a hyper growth company, LinkedIn is surprisingly not investing enough in hiring / grooming middle managers. At times, it feels that the place works in spite of itself
    * Company is not doing enough to grow and promote people from within
    * Poor communication & coordination across different team with signs of creeping politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Analyze the problem and not symptoms
