    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wellness program (gym, classes, special events, reward system)
    Discretionary time-off and 2 weeks of company-wide shutdown
    Free really good food
    InDays!!!
    Great culture and friendly environment
    Beautiful campus

    Cons

    Very limited shuttle system
    "All is fine in my bubble" mentality
    Lenient management

    Advice to Management

    I love having so much freedom in my work and most of us at LinkedIn make good use of it. So keep it up! Just make sure you keep hiring people that don't try to take advantage of it, otherwise this pleasure boat might start to sink.

    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.
