    Pros

    Amazing team enviroment, endless perks and awesome management that encourages creativity and flexbility. I love working at LinkedIn in New York!

    Cons

    Literally none. The only thing I could think of is that some of the teams get silloed into their own areas/floors and don't with one another as much as they could.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Protect this special culture and maintain the core values that make this place what it is. You could also do a little better with diversity (LGBTQ and women) employement.

    Pros

    The company heading in the right direction with tremendous potential for continued growth. Competitive Compensation, Benefits, Employee Stock Purchase Plan, 401(k) matching, free daily lunches, nice office.

    Cons

    The company has become very big with less consideration of constructive feedback on improvements. Most of the leadership team is incredibly strong but some divisions have their missing links.

    Pros

    Great culture, still manages to feel like a startup even though they are expanding rapidly.

    Cons

    Sometimes bloated vision. Many competing programs make it difficult to decide on company strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up but focus on keeping employees informed on strategy and mission going forward as you continue to scale to a larger company.

    Pros

    Super awesome company to work at. The culture is phenomenal and the co-workers are brilliant. They know how to take care of their employees and fuel innovation.

    Cons

    With a company of over 9,000 people, individual impact can often get lost. Also, change is fast. Project priorities change quickly from week to week.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to allow innovative thinking and ideas to manifest themselves. Keep the number of cooks in the kitchen limited and make sure no brilliant ideas die at the hands of committees.

    Pros

    They really care about your experience working here. LinkedIn has excellent perks and lots of fun activities. There's lot of opportunities to explore and learn as well.

    Cons

    As with any other big organizations, LinkedIn is losing its start-up-ish touch. You can no longer do things you wish but you are bound to ask permission on every step. Some people eventually feels limited and trap.

    Advice to Management

    Advice your employee to answer their emails, or do something to help them receive less than a 100 junk emails from other teams would def. help.
