Pros

With LinkedIn's diversified lines of business, leadership at the executive level has set a clear plan to achieve their ambitious agenda, including a CRM/Sales Solution to couple Talent Solutions in tandem with international expansions to markets historically adverse to utilizing comparable platforms. With a community that lives and breathes the words of Jeff Weiner himself, as seen biweekly, live from Mountain View, HQ, LinkedIn's passionate employee base is the heartbeat of future successes.

Cons

While leadership at the executive and VP level are well aligned, it became clear that there were those at Sr. Director and below attempting to leverage their 10+ tenures at Fortune 100s and translate the same leadership to a quickly expanding employee base. Change is constant yet an organized execution of the top driven visions was more hodgepodged than expected. This unfortunately is also seen in the lack of workforce planning and talent management.
