    Approves of CEO

    I worked at LinkedIn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - CEO: Clear captain leading the ship. You always feel like you are in great hands
    - Transparency/Communication: The CEO has town hall meetings regularly and encourages participation. No excuse to ever feel like you are "out of the loop"
    - Culture: The work culture is the best I've ever been a part of. Majority of the people truly love working there. And a lot of folks have "buyer's remorse" when they leave
    - People: Smartest group of people I've ever worked with from top to bottom.
    - Perks/Benefits: These are amazing as well. I still brag to this day about the gourmet cafeteria, snacks, events, free transportation, and benefits that will keep you on campus.

    Cons

    One thing I learned about being at LinkedIn is that no one is perfect and they value constructive criticism, so here it goes:

    Lots of "Type A" personalities that are engaging in healthy competition. Some of the "quieter" folks who put their head down and do the work often don't get the credit they deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. There's a reason why you have a lot of folks who come back after leaving LinkedIn. They don't know what they have until it's gone. Please don't change.

    Communications Team Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at LinkedIn (San Francisco, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Quick phone screen with recruiter, video conference with hiring manager. No communication at all with the either the recruiter or manager, despite emailing both of them afterward. Not a good look for a company that is focused on helping people get jobs.
