"Billion dollar company with start-up culture"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Every employee is committed to the success of other employees. The company really views itself as a team and measures individual success on the basis of how much an employee helps others succeed.

Cons

There are still some kinks in the hiring process and HR organization, but that is understandable given the rapid growth the company is experiencing

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time

    Pros

    Free food.
    One day a month off ("In Day")
    Everyone thinks its "cool" that you worked at Linkedin...(ha)

    Cons

    Complete Circus like atmosphere....Management is way to inexperienced to even manage a McDonalds, and seemingly more concerned about them selves rather than their team. People kiss up like I have never seen...its comical. Very transactional sale, not the place to go if you want to blow it out...you just play the game and you will be average at best.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, there is a real world out there! If you dont want to understand how to listen to whats wrong, then dont preach "open and honest" communication. I feel for those that get suckered into this "cult-like" culture. Not ready for prime time..(especially in the enterprise)

    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.)
