    I have been working at LinkedIn (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many talented people, good culture & values, clear mission, sound strategy, top-notch benefits including great food, strong CEO, lots of opportunity, cool campuses, company all-hands, InDays, founder still involved

    Cons

    Too many incompetent but hot headed sales leaders and reps, weak divisional marketing leadership especially LSS and GMO, product team has been slow to execute, insufficient engineering bench strength, arrogant people, overly entitled employees, siloed orgs, complete lack of collaboration inside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Lots going well overall, but here's some advice. Invest a lot more in your product to make it a daily habit, drastically increase and improve engineering talent (there are way too many bugs for a company of Linkedin's caliber), quickly make changes to the LSS/GMO marketing leadership, rotate out all the hot headed sales leaders who have struggled to grow their books, motivate your sales reps to work much harder.
