Pros

We really do work hard and play hard.
Great exec leadership team.
Ridiculous amounts of free food/snacks/drinks.
Lots of room to grow/develop position.

Cons

As with any growing company there's more work than time in the day.
Not great work/life balance, but they try to make it as painless as possible.

    Pros

    * Engineers are treated world class; a stark contrast from a lot of so called "tech companies" that don't actually care about their technical talent
    * The best upper management/executive team I've ever worked under. Very transparent group of leaders. It starts from Jeff Weiner (who is the best CEO in the tech industry) and trickles down to everyone else
    * Amazing perks like free catered food, free snacks and drinks
    * Great compensation and stock packages
    * Awesome work/life balance
    * Almost all of my co workers care for the success of the company and are great to work with
    * Lots of promoting from within
    * Great location in Mountain View

    Cons

    I can't think of anything major enough to consider a "con" of working at LinkedIn. I would say that I wish the gym was nicer/larger and had stuff like spin classes offered, but that's a really low priority for me.

    Advice to Management

    Starting from Jeff Weiner down to the middle management, the culture at LinkedIn has been one of transparency and genuine desire to have everyone here grow in their career. I hope this continues even as we grow at such a fast pace

    Pros

    -Smart co-workers
    -Fast paced environment
    -Frequent opportunity to beta test new products
    -Free catered lunches, drinks, snacks, Froyo

    Cons

    -Hostile environment: Bullying and workplace violence. I've personally experienced this as well as others across my organization.
    -Middle management is unable to manage expectations from executive leadership team resulting in burn out and demoralization of those doing the work on the ground.
    -Many of the inspiring leaders that built up Linkedin to what it is today have left or will be leaving Linkedin soon.
    -Very political and hierarchical

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people actually doing the work.
