    Pros

    Excellent product, world-class benefits, above average pay, relaxed dress code, growth opportunities, and friendly atmosphere. I love the management philosophy of Leadership, Leverage, Results. Early on in every position, the employee is asked "what is your next play." The company is always looking to determine your next role and opportunity.

    Cons

    LinkedIn hires on pedigree and age. Most managers are under 30, directors are under 40, and anyone over 40 is a rarity. Important positions will be staffed based on the university the employee graduated from, rather than work experience. Sales process is being created by recent Ivy League grads who have never sold. Some sales and service director positions have been filled with individuals who are extremely smart but have limited to no experience selling and retaining. The attitude is if you are smart, you can lead any team no matter if you have zero experience doing your staff's actual trade. The millennial focus is highlighted in many aspects of the culture. At the 2016 global sales organization meeting, messaging was all about "you are the best-of-the-best" and that LinkedIn would not be successful without the individual job you do. Top performers were highlighted in front of thousands of employees. As the employee came to the stage to receive their well deserved award, videos of colleagues commending them were shown. Interspersed among work-centric kudos, the awardee's parents were shown in the videos congratulating their child and stating how proud they were of them. For a non-millennial, it was weird to see their parents congratulating their kid in a work setting. But this is also a company who holds Bring Your Parents to Work Day.

    Smoke and mirrors

    Pros

    -Generous time off i.e. Shutdown week (July and December), LIftUp, InDay. -Employee Resource Groups, emphasis on diversity and inclusion -Healthcare and Dental premium paid for (although keep in mind that you still have to pay for visits) -solid Work/Life balance

    Cons

    -pay is egregiously substandard compared to the overall tech industry -Company Shutdown for Support have gradually been chipped away. This was a 'perk' that was brought when I was initially hired however with the emphasis to staff chat support, this time off is being stripped away and you are being forced to work! ** -mobility is based more on how much you kiss up to management rather than skills -Lack of transparency, there is never a concrete answer for anything pertaining to procedures, etc.
