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

Pros

This is a terrific place to work. You are not only working with competent workers, but also with people who are happy and friendly. The business itself has strong growth potential and I do believe that people here believe in the mission.

Also, there are a surprisingly high number of female software engineers here, which I think is terrific, considering the general gender bias in the industry as a whole.

Cons

If you live in SF, the commute is a pain... even with the shuttle (which unfortunately only has limited numbers of trips, unlike Google).

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing healthcare benefits, stock options, free meals, fun culture, casual dress, team-building activities, opportunity for advancement. LinkedIn does a great job of sourcing and hiring top-notch talent. The company works hard to keep talent and is very competitive with benefits and salary.

    Cons

    As with any tech company, the work/life balance could be better. As the company grows more and more each year, we've lost some of the "small company" culture of knowing everyone by first name.

    Advice to Management

    Some upper management could be more available. Management is notorious for having too much on their plate, being over-worked, and having double-booked calendars every day of the week. Delegation and time management could be improved upon, in that respect.

    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.)
