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

    Pros

    LinkedIn is a company with a culture of transformation and a priority of acquiring and developing amazing talent. Although the company is public and growing, it's very possible for any employee to make a great impact. Senior leadership emphasizes the importance of sustaining a startup culture. It's important to stay agile, move quickly, and be flexible in order to succeed. This is definitely not a culture meant for those that are accustomed to very corporate, linear, process-driven projects. The greatest part about the company is the amount of passionate people you are surrounded with who are motivated to help you any way they can.

    There are plenty of perks at the company including free breakfast and lunch, food truck fridays, microkitchens at every floor, arcade machines, pinball machines, bikes, scooters, gym, health programs, on-site haircuts, on-site massage chairs, influencer speaker events, shuttles to and from SF, and Caltrain discount programs. The compensation is very competitive with other tech companies.

    One day each month, every employee has the opportunity to participate in InDay, where work is optional and the employee can invest in their own development through either LinkedIn-organized events, personal development projects, or volunteer efforts.

    I've never worked for a company quite like LinkedIn, and it's amazing how much the company and its employees have accomplished in a relatively short period of time.

    Cons

    The company is experiencing rapid growth, and with it comes growing pains. Internal systems, processes, and support is still playing catch-up with the rate it's growing. The speed of hiring new employees is starting to result in a lot of junior/inexperienced employees or those that may bring bad practices/habits from other companies.

    Advice to Management

    It's very important for the company to maintain its unique culture and values. As the company grows, it's important not to lose sight of the traditions and culture which led to its success. Lots of companies had to sacrifice their culture in order to sustain a growth trajectory, but in turn lost a lot of valuable talent. I would hate for the same thing to happen to LinkedIn.

    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).
