    Current Employee - Relationship Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Current Employee - Relationship Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

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

    Pros

    The culture is built around development of employees; managers are trained and measured against employees in their team and how they advance throughout the organization. LinkedIn lives by the mantra: Dream Big, Have Fun & Get Stuff done. The sheer diversity in the Dublin office is amazing, with nationalities and possibilities to do cross-team / and functional business and development.

    Cons

    The work hard / play hard lifestyle can become too much and if you are not aware you will be letting LinkedIn into your life in a way you have not interacted with an employer before, this is especially true for expats - where the line between colleague and friend become exceptionally blurry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust in the LinkedIn culture, double down and invest more in the development of employees skills - by direct management and specific training demanded on monthly or quarterly basis - Employees want to learn and grow, but will not allocate time to it, unless their managers and top managers - look them in the eye and say - "We are doing this!", "You are doing this" - Because we know, that you will become an even better expert, leader and employee and mentor afterwards. Can have nothing or everything to do with your current role, but should not be a requirement.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at LinkedIn full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    (a) an incredible culture--unlike most companies, LInkedIn is was a better place to work with 5000 people than it was with 300 people, and that's due to the culture it's created, which not only endured but gotten stronger (b) you work on stuff that really matters, (c) it has brought in some incredible talent into the business. While every company has some bad hires, I would put the caliber of the LinkedIn senior staff up against any company in the world.

    Cons

    It's become a big company, which has both pluses and minuses

    I have been working at LinkedIn

    Pros

    Office culture is very relaxed but with an emphasis on personal and organization-wide success. Transparency from management ensures you are never in the dark. Free lunch every day and full cafeteria at HQ.

    Cons

    Sales org has its growing pains but there are far more benefits of the smaller teams than cons. Any complaints people have are 1st world problems. "Why is there chicken on the menu every day?" ... ITS FREE!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Just don't let the growth of the company change the culture that has made this company so great!
