A dynamic, collaborative place that feels like a big startup. Everyone acts like an owner.

Pros

Strength of business model provides a sense of stability, but the culture is hack, open, and envelope-pushing. No one knows where the next great idea is going to come from, so everything is on the table. Bi-weekly company all-hands is amazing -- execs give updates on every critical piece of the business and answer anything employees want to know! It's more than just a great gesture. Oh, and the cafe ROCKS.

Cons

Communication across teams could be a little better, but lots of structures in place to address that.

Advice to Management

Keep leading, keep sharing, keep hiring the best, keep empowering.

    LinkedIn is a grownup company.

    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 Management

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