Pros

- Excellent Senior leadership. Jeff and Mike do a great job of communicating where the company is and where its going.
- The vision is inspiring. Creating economic opportunity for the world's 3 billion workers.
- Really nice peer-to-peer skill building opportunities.
- Monthly hackdays keep the start-up spirit alive even as we grow to 4k+ employees

Cons

- This is a title poor company. Most of my MBA cohort outside LinkedIn are at the Director/VP level. I'm in a comparable job here and am a Manager. Titles aren't a big deal to me, but I have heard that the lower perception hurts employees when they leave the company.

Advice to Management

- Fight bureaucracy wherever you can. Limit meetings and time spent working on internal processes. Free us up to go build cool stuff that will change the world.
- Encourage more internal mobility. It happens today within Sales, Product and Engineering. Could it happen across those groups?
-Open up offices in lower cost cities. Denver, Salt Lake City, Austin, Atlanta etc.. It is impossible to buy a home in Mountain View/Palo Alto and standard of living would be higher outside Silicon Valley.

    Pros

    Culture, Food, People, Ping Pong, Amazing Products, Amazing leadership, bright future, Love working in the Empire State Building.

    Cons

    Getting a bit larger - 900 employees to 5,000 in 3 years. Wowzers. Still, they want us to be a "billion dollar startup", so are trying to remove big company barriers.

    Advice to Management

    Preserve that startup culture!

    Pros

    1.) Smart, driven, and FUN coworkers
    2.) I'm learning every day
    3.) I feel appreciated
    4.) Management encourages me to pursue new projects and ideas
    5.) No "set" schedule (but we work HARD)
    6.) Free food
    7.) Free Gym
    8.) Free Classes (e.g. Yoga, financial planning)
    9.) Team-bonding events (e.g. ziplining, dinner in SF)
    10.) Opportunities to grow

    I've worked at a company in which management never learned my name. (I was there for a year.)

    I've worked at a failing startup. (That was tough.)

    I've worked at a lumbering, giant corporation. (Ideas? Forget it. There's other work to do.)

    After these experiences, I can honestly say I'm very happy at LinkedIn.

    Cons

    People here work hard. Sometimes it's easy to forget about that whole "work-life balance" thing. This can get stressful!

    Advice to Management

    Help to foster a work-life balance.
