Featured Review

Former Contractor - Technical Program Manager

I worked at LinkedIn for less than a year

Pros

The company culture at LinkedIn is absolutely fantastic. It is a collaborative environment where everybody works together and supports each other. As a contractor, one often feels like a second-class... citizen- not so at LinkedIn! Everybody is treated with equal dignity and respect.

Cons

As a contractor, contracts can end on short-notice.

I have been working at Airbnb full-time for more than a year

Pros

Super smart colleagues, cool mission, love the product. I work in data infra (where superset, airflow, etc was created) and am super happy.

Cons

Company needs to focus on it's product roadmap to grow into its valuation.
