    Pros

    One year into my career at LinkedIn, I am still in love with my job. LinkedIn has a strong company culture that encourages collaboration, intelligent risks, and fun. I look forward to spending time with my coworkers, and I find myself laughing throughout the day, even when I'm working hard to hit high sales quotas. I feel like my manager has my back and supports my career growth. I cannot recommend LinkedIn enough!

    Cons

    It's a big company, so you have to invest in networking internally if you want to advance your career.
