"Mixed bag. Tread carefully if thinking about coming here."

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

Pros

-Fast growing.
-Good pay.
-Access to rock stars if they have time.
-Some groups do innovative work.

Cons

-Professional development only applies if you are an engineer.
-Execs oblivious to a lot of morale and recognition issues outside of engineering. Expecting to see big drain over the next year of key/critical people.
-401K program is terrible.
-Hiring on quantity not quality in many teams and it is starting to show.
-Decisions made with no understanding of solution impact.
-A lot of dead weight.

Advice to Management

Spend some time with your and other teams. Learn their names. Eat in the cafeteria with the rank and file more than one time a year. Go sit at a random table for an impromptu skip level. (This should include Jeff.)

    Pros

    Co-workers are hyperintelligent, dedicated, experienced, and eager. The products are interesting and we get to see real change every day.

    Cons

    The fast rate of growth means sometimes duties fall through the cracks and responsibilities are nebulous.

    Advice to Management

    Doing great.

    Pros

    Awesome company, but the cultural of LinkedIn is not for everyone -- just like any company . They look for innovative people who are not just waiting for their next step, but creating it. The ability to transform your career and passions to a job you love, is incredible. I love having a direct influence on my career path. There isn't a right or wrong way to move in the direction you want to go with LinkedIn. It isn't a ladder you are trying to move up. It is a staircase with many floors. You choose where you want to go.

    Cons

    Some employees don't get it. You influence your path and management is their to guide you and support you, but not hold your hand.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!
