Pros

Amazing healthcare benefits, stock options, free meals, fun culture, casual dress, team-building activities, opportunity for advancement. LinkedIn does a great job of sourcing and hiring top-notch talent. The company works hard to keep talent and is very competitive with benefits and salary.

Cons

As with any tech company, the work/life balance could be better. As the company grows more and more each year, we've lost some of the "small company" culture of knowing everyone by first name.

Advice to Management

Some upper management could be more available. Management is notorious for having too much on their plate, being over-worked, and having double-booked calendars every day of the week. Delegation and time management could be improved upon, in that respect.

    Pros

    -Fast growing. -Good pay. -Access to rock stars if they have time. -Some groups do innovative work.

    Cons

    -Professional development only applies if you are an engineer. -Execs oblivious to a lot of morale and recognition issues outside of engineering. Expecting to see big drain over the next year of key/critical people. -401K program is terrible. -Hiring on quantity not quality in many teams and it is starting to show. -Decisions made with no understanding of solution impact. -A lot of dead weight.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time with your and other teams. Learn their names. Eat in the cafeteria with the rank and file more than one time a year. Go sit at a random table for an impromptu skip level. (This should include Jeff.)

    Pros

    Co-workers are hyperintelligent, dedicated, experienced, and eager. The products are interesting and we get to see real change every day.

    Cons

    The fast rate of growth means sometimes duties fall through the cracks and responsibilities are nebulous.

    Advice to Management

    Doing great.
