Best company I've ever worked for and one of the best overall in Silicon Valley

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Mountain View, CA
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Mountain View, CA

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

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    By far the best place I've worked at to date

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at LinkedIn

    Pros

    Great culture & values. All of the employees genuinely care about one another, and this makes for a productive and successful environment.

    Cons

    Be ready for lots of change...not necessarily a bad thing, but with new products being rolled out on a monthly basis, you must stay organized and be willing to adapt quickly.

    -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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people actually doing the work.
