Pros

Inspiring senior leadership, a lot of growth opportunities and lateral movement within the company. LinkedIn is really going places and it was great to be a part of that; people work very hard but know they're contributing to LinkedIn's mission of connecting professionals.

Cons

Recruiting coordination team is majority contract workers, so the team seemed to have been constantly changing and not exactly evolving. Because of this, not a strong team camaraderie.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    It is a great company. There are a lot of house-brewed open source technology for you to learn. Almost everything you use here is cutting edge so that you can probably work for many others after leaving here.
    I like that the company is under staffed so that the employees here can choose the big projects and make great contributions.
    Also the company values relationship between each other so you will feel very respected by your peers.

    Cons

    Not everybody is a rock star and sometimes the best ones have to do a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Fairness is important! Award the best well so that the good ones will stay!

    Pros

    Awesome company, but the cultural of LinkedIn is not for everyone -- just like any company . They look for innovative people who are not just waiting for their next step, but creating it. The ability to transform your career and passions to a job you love, is incredible. I love having a direct influence on my career path. There isn't a right or wrong way to move in the direction you want to go with LinkedIn. It isn't a ladder you are trying to move up. It is a staircase with many floors. You choose where you want to go.

    Cons

    Some employees don't get it. You influence your path and management is their to guide you and support you, but not hold your hand.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!
