    Pros

    Awesome Culture. Great brand. Extremely smart leadership team. Tons of growth opportunities at all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    Normal challenges that all growing companies face 10 years in. Growth is slowing, so sense of scrutiny is higher across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people and make sure LinkedIn doesn't lose its identity with the Microsoft acquisition. Also don't look to grow with too many products too fast.

    I worked at LinkedIn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had an awesome manager, really great teammates and overall a seriously positive experience working at LinkedIn for the brief time I was there! The only reason I left was because I was offered a job at a start up in a totally different industry. Leaving LinkedIn was one of the HARDEST decisions i've ever made!

    Cons

    Honestly? Farmer's Fridge salad bar wasn't very good. To put this in perspective, LinkedIn caters lunch to it's employees every day and there's always a salad bar option - Farmers Fridge is the option a few days a week. This is how awesome LinkedIn is - I honestly can't think of another con.

    Advice to Management

    Every company preaches how much it cares about it's employees. LinkedIn is the only place i've ever worked where you can really see that at every level. Incredibly smart leaders - I worked at CareerBuilder before coming here, so actually having intelligent/strategic leadership was a refreshing change! World class product. It's a dream job for sales people. Such a fun experience! I could honestly see myself coming back to LinkedIn later down the line in my career!!

    Pros

    High income, transformational culture, respect, mobility. Products work and we are always innovating technology. Great place to become a first time manager. Quotas are fair with 40-50% hitting their on target earnings.

    Cons

    Hard to find a con. I would say there are limited opportunities once you hit manager. Many people "peak" at manager and end up getting director/VP positions at other companies. But it's a great launch pad to do something huge at another company!

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, you are doing a great job!

    - Getting risk-averse.
