Pros

Beautiful data: best collection of rich, structured people data in the world. Social network where the connections are meaningful. The satisfaction of delivering real value for users -- we get them jobs and help them be more successful in the jobs they have. Great data scientists and engineers with a strong hacker culture.

Cons

The company has grown quickly, and it shows. Good news: company is working to overhaul legacy infrastructure and processes; bad news: we still have to get work done during the overhaul.

Advice to Management

Watch out for fiefdoms. Reward people who build bridges across department boundaries and push back on managers who try to build empires.
