Current Employee - Principal Software Engineer in Mountain View, CA

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

Pros

Highly professional, effective people. Projects that actually make a difference, and a focus on meaningful work. Good perks, happy people, and the pay is fairly competitive. I was underpaid at my old job, so I got roughly a 60% raise after stock and bonus was factored in.

Cons

Very corporate- less than you might think, but more than you probably ideally want. As one might expect from the size of the company, it is less agile than a startup, and more bureaucratic. However, it feels still acceptable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the stock price high and focus on quality middle management, and you're gold.

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

    Pros

    All the perks of competing firms (Google, FB) in a smaller company, which means you have a larger impact. Great work life balance and many very smart people. Many problems to be solved as LinkedIn continues to expand faster and faster.

    Cons

    With all the recruiting going on, interviewing can start to take a good chunk of your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None - Jeff is great!
