    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Where do I start. Amazing benefits and perks. On-site restaurant that sometimes serves Michelin star type of meals. Collaborative, fun working environment.

    Cons

    LinkedIn has an amazing Diversity program called DIBs(Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging), but still has a lot of work to do in terms of having a truly diverse employee base. They need to hire more tenured folks in addition to folks with diverse backgrounds. Work life balance also needs to be encouraged broadly and not just implemented by some managers.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at LinkedIn.

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIn, talked to a recruiter, scheduled a phone screen, had the screen. Every question was pretty easy from a Senior Software Engineer standpoint and I breezed through them fast enough that we had a ton of extra time. In the end I was given a no, they said I didn't seem senior enough. It seemed really sketchy, especially considering the interviewer had less experience than me (got promoted to senior less than 2 years at LI from out of college). There's definitely some internal agenda on hiring going on, haven't ever gotten a no from an interview I had such an easy time with.
