    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time

    Pros

    great atmosphere and mission, love working here with my team and on cool projects, love San Francisco offices

    Cons

    My old company, a nearby EHR startup was horrible. Guys would talk about girls wearing chokers as (see urban dictionary), and made snide comments and fraternity like stuff. Experienced complete professionalism and none of these cons at LinkedIn

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, the Microsoft Acqusition has only made us stronger while maintaining our sense and purpose

    Pros

    Good culture, good work life balance

    Cons

    Growth might be limited in some teams, and some bigger teams seem to have "pride" over others. Pay are not equalized between these teams.

    Pros

    - food, food, food
    - awesome culture!
    - work life balance is great
    - great leadership
    - impact per employee is great
    - food
    - perks like 2 weeks per year shut down, DTO, free food, 401k match (50 cents per dollar), 401 after tax, awesome gyms, inDays, $2000 perk up per year, medical benefits and list goes on
    - did I say food?

    Cons

    - tooling and tech stack can be better for the perspective of the size of the company and revenue. Glad that these things are taking priority post acquisition by M$.

    - keep doing the great work
    - thanks for being transparent.

    Hard to figure out career growth for some roles

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time

    Pros

    - A shared and uncompromising believe to conduct business with integrity and put member's first
    - Most people are goal oriented and very dedicated to bring LinkedIn mission and vision to life
    - Great benefits
    - Management cares about your well being
    - Best perks in town, but subpar compared with offices in other locations
    - Despite of acquisitions and multiple reorgs, the culture remains strong
    - Competitive salary
    - The overwhelmingly majority of people are friendly, helpful and respectful

    Cons

    - Talent retention seems an area that is neglected. There is a heavy focus in new talent and the sentiment you need to leave the company and come back in order to be able to grow is increasing
    - Some organizations and locations are stigmatized which results in less opportunities to grow
    - While LinkedIn's vision is to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce, it hasn't joined the ranks of Facebook and Google by removing college degree requirements for a lot of positions that experience could be a substitute
    - Some teams are becoming very hierarchical and there are few bad apples who use politics to accomplish personal agendas

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on talent retention
    - Incorporate internal mobility during talent planning
    - Condemn from the highest levels of management the stigmatization of any group or location
    - Be on the lookout for people with personal agendas from affecting the culture and distracting everyone from achieving shared goals
    - Equalize the quality of perks and facilities across all locations
    - Demand excellence and don't be complacent
