  1. By far and away LinkedIn will be the best company I ever work for in my career. No doubt.

    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.

    Pros

    great work life balance, great culture, great perks, amazing CEO, vision for the company

    Cons

    the company continues to grow fast and does not have the same small scrappy entrepreneurial feeling it did a couple years ago. The other thing that happens when you grow fast is promote a bunch of people in to management roles with no previous experience.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the management is amazing, and some is not.

    Pros

    I've been here a while so I've seen the company change in many ways. LinkedIn offers all of the top of the line compensation and perks you'd expect in this market; although one must wonder if all the perks are necessary.

    Cons

    This isn't the little company I joined - and some of the fun and a lot of the personality is leaving the ranks and being replaced with large company models. It isn't all bad, but I definitely feel like a stranger walking around the halls.

    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

    Pros

    Amazing perks at LinkedIn, including fun activities, stocked fridges, fun environment, etc. Definitely a work hard, play hard balance. Teams can be fun.

    Cons

    Is extremely political. You must toot your own horn to stand out, while shaking hands and kissing babies. New hires aren't really aligned with traditional LinkedIn culture, mostly because they are narcissistic and anxious to consume that kool-aid to up their value.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better management who want to develop the team, and locate weak links to help those struggling.
