    Pros

    Great work ethic of people Co-workers wanting to do the best

    Cons

    Hiring too many young people to do senior jobs that they cannot do. I have seen too many people set up for failure. They are not given a chance.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more quality people. One person cannot complete the role of 3 good people. Just because the salary and benefits are amazing does not mean people have to or should work 70+ hours a week.

    Pros

    Working with one of the richest and most unique data sets in the world. Insane perks. Free food. Great resources. Managers encourage career and personal development.

    Cons

    Growing very quickly. Not entirely sure this kind of growth is sustainable, but if any company can make it happen, it's LinkedIn.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Keep doing what you're doing and keep team culture one of your top priorities.

    Pros

    All the silicon valley perks you would imagine, flexible schedule, food, transportation, etc. A big emphasis on "ownership"

    Cons

    It's getting to be a big company, which brings all the politics and bureaucracy for better or worse.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the company feeling small.

    Pros

    Exciting projects, initiatives and things to work on that have or will have material impacts on people's livelihoods. Bold mission and vision that literally impact global economics around the world. True leadership at the top who live and breathe the culture, values, and mission of the company. No tolerance for BS and a focus on culture and building meaningful and lasting personal and professional relationships.

    Cons

    Amazing hypergrowth mode as the company goes from a smaller big company to a true Silicon Valley powerhouse; so some areas that you would think are in place or mature are not there yet. On the flip side, creates opportunities for those with vision and strategy to provide a point of view and run with it with support from the leadership all the way to the executive staff.

    Advice to Management

    Keep holding leadership accountable to live the culture truly, hold values as the guiding principles with no exceptions, keep innovating and taking venture bets and don't get complacent. Focus on creating a truly global mindset company, not just an international company with global locations.

    Pros

    The perks, benefits and push to be better really makes this company different.

    Cons

    Just like other companies, politics is an issue and a barricade to do better.

    Advice to Management

    Stay transparent and open with all employees. Please enforce a metric system for performance as there seems to be a number of employees who don't contribute.
