I have been working at LinkedIn as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Free buffet lunch, great perks (so I've heard), relaxing atmosphere, great team.

Cons

There are contract workers who are basically the 2nd class citizens, and not even considered employed with LinkedIn

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should require all agencies to provide acceptable healthcare to employers, contract or not.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    - 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.
