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.)

    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.
