    Pros

    Brilliant talent to work with! Awesome CEO - all developments company-wide is communicated in Company All hands. Benefits - extremely compatible with Google

    Cons

    Since LI is growing drastically globally, it is still very start up like which is great. Though multiple tools are used for same function such as chatting tool (there are 3 or 4) etc. Company is working towards consolidating such areas. To conclude, for any new comer, it might be a bit nerve wrecking so get familiar with which team uses what tools. Pay attention during on-boarding.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Lots of room for career advance if you are the right person. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    Possible downturn for the business since the company is still very one dimensional. Some of the junior devs are not too competent. Stock refresh / bonus policy is worse compared to other bay area companies.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair when we grow fast. Reward people and retain top talents. It takes a lot to grow talents into top talents.

    Pros

    I can't speak highly enough about this company. There are times I can't believe I even work here. Beyond the free food, free booze, and the beautiful work spaces, the company is even better at hiring some of the smartest and friendliest people I've ever met. If you ever get the opportunity to interview here, do yourself a favor and study up, because you will NOT regret it

    Cons

    This isn't really a con, but it's something to keep in mind: because LinkedIn is so good at creating an awesome work environment, some employees tend to get too comfortable. Don't mistake their kindness for weakness -- do your job, get results and always do what's best for you and the company.

    Advice to Management

    The mission of LinkedIn is easy to believe in, and you guys do a hell of a job keeping us up to date on how the company is moving forward. Keep advising your managers how to motivate and inspire us, and the results will come.
