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

Pros

- Excellent Senior leadership. Jeff and Mike do a great job of communicating where the company is and where its going.
- The vision is inspiring. Creating economic opportunity for the world's 3 billion workers.
- Really nice peer-to-peer skill building opportunities.
- Monthly hackdays keep the start-up spirit alive even as we grow to 4k+ employees

Cons

- This is a title poor company. Most of my MBA cohort outside LinkedIn are at the Director/VP level. I'm in a comparable job here and am a Manager. Titles aren't a big deal to me, but I have heard that the lower perception hurts employees when they leave the company.

Advice to Management

- Fight bureaucracy wherever you can. Limit meetings and time spent working on internal processes. Free us up to go build cool stuff that will change the world.
- Encourage more internal mobility. It happens today within Sales, Product and Engineering. Could it happen across those groups?
-Open up offices in lower cost cities. Denver, Salt Lake City, Austin, Atlanta etc.. It is impossible to buy a home in Mountain View/Palo Alto and standard of living would be higher outside Silicon Valley.

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

    Pros

    Culture, Food, People, Ping Pong, Amazing Products, Amazing leadership, bright future, Love working in the Empire State Building.

    Cons

    Getting a bit larger - 900 employees to 5,000 in 3 years. Wowzers. Still, they want us to be a "billion dollar startup", so are trying to remove big company barriers.

    Advice to Management

    Preserve that startup culture!

    Pros

    Transparency, Access to management and ability to try new things are just a few of the pros. Most importantly are the people I work with here. I am consistently challenged to grow as my peers are the some of the smartest and most successful in the respective specialties!

    Cons

    I have experience very few if any cons in my time here at LinkedIn

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hold onto our startup mentality no matter how large we grow.
