    I worked at LinkedIn full-time

    Pros

    -Free Food makes it convenient to eat lunch.
    -Learn a lot from peers
    -Benefit packages
    -Building network of high level clients
    -Guest speakers
    -Hack Days to learn of some possible new ideas

    Cons

    The higher management preach leverage leadership while the lower management don't bother to leverage those who are asking for help. They will place a cold shoulder to struggling sales reps rather than help those who are asking for help. Some of the managers have their ivy league degrees yet they don't use it to leverage others. They use their degree to have others leverage them.

    The territory and account list is not evenly distributed and fair to meet quota standards. There will be account executives who have better list of accounts and territory which will go in their favor on meeting their numbers. If you are given a territory with companies that will make a difference with meeting your numbers and how managers treat you.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to Managers is to be more fair on your accessing AE's on their territory/ account list and the quota they have to meet. It does not seem fair that someone who handles Indio, CA is going to be judged on the same platform as someone who has San Francisco, CA.
