    Pros

    Great culture - CEO that has a clear and compelling vision - the feeling of doing good (helping people find jobs) - very data driven. Great business model, and very driven leadership.

    Cons

    Very hard working - always on culture that makes it hard to have work/life balance - lots of growing pains as the company continues to scale - getting more political as the company grows - salaries low compared to peers due to desire to work for the company - people are often 'underleveled' compared to their experience. Resources are very tight for non revenue producing functions

    Advice to Management

    Preach, don't just talk, work life balance - provide greater opportunities for development/career transformation.

    Pros

    Based out in Singapore office.

    Fast paced, exciting, dynamic, and best of all... people treat each other beautifully! Although we have drastically grown in size, LinkedIn still encourages a good level of innovation and risk taking.

    Inspiring and transparent leadership and a great HR team who truly cares for every single employee. Awesome benefits, perks and delicious free food everyday!

    You bring home happiness... and you can also bring your home to work! Work life balance is not encouraged... work-life harmony is!

    Ultimately at its core, there is a distinctively different and very strong sense of culture and values at LinkedIn which fundamentally holds the entire company and its employees together. You'll have to experience to believe! It's a wonderful thing!

    Cons

    This place can be very rough / challenging if one is unable to find a fit into...
    (1) the strong culture and values
    (2) getting stuff done (fast!), knowing how to have fun, dreaming big
    (3) accepting continuous feedback in a non-defensive way
    (4) being open to changing and transforming oneself for the better

    If all checks on the above... oh my goodness you are gonna have a blast!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on leading with inspiration, clarity, transparency, and staying true to our mission and vision. Don't let the pressure of growing fast or making $-sense on the short term compromise on the quality of people we bring into the organization, or the quality of decisions and risk-taking that we need to stay nimble and successful on the long term! We're gonna change the world!

    Pros

    - CEO, Jeff Weiner, is a class act. Took LinkedIn from startup to IPO, and to continued success
    - Company culture is something that the CEO has actively cultivated into one of the most charming environments to work for

    Cons

    - Some of the teams are mired in bureaucracy but that's the downside of becoming a behemoth

    Advice to Management

    Keep on making those big bucks!
