    Lots of similar thinking and replica-based hiring in some groups - too much ex Bain, needs diversity

    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!

    Pros

    LinkedIn's goal is to connect people with opportunities. Great reason to get up in the morning!

    Colleagues are brilliant, but humble and generally laid back.

    CEO Jeff Weiner is an amazing leader, providing clear vision and complete transparency.

    Cons

    Limited flexibility in terms of work location, and the commute from/to SF is only getting longer as traffic keeps getting worse.

    Pros

    Clear mission/vision, top tier talent, incredible potential as a business and valued added service to millions of professionals and an incredible culture.

    Cons

    The different business lines are separate with little opportunity to cross-sell. No in-fighting or hostility but just a missed opportunity to team sell into companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in leadership and management training. Managers make or break the employee experience.
