    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits
    Generous compensation
    Talented colleagues
    Good work/life balance

    You'll probably gain weight from all of the free food.
    Sometimes you may feel like a tiny cog in the vast machine.

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    AMAZING culture, free full-service cafeteria with 5-star food, free healthcare and stipends to use toward gym memberships, massages, child/pet care, etc... anything you would ever need- LinkedIn has it! They care SO MUCH about their employees and not only spoil us at work, but outside of work too at company events and recognitions. The job itself is also enjoyable- LinkedIn is a very respectable company who helps provide huge ROI to its clients. I feel very passionate about LinkedIn's products, which makes the role itself very rewarding.

    Cons

    The only con you might have is that all your friends will be jealous you work for the best company ever. :)

    Advice to Management

    We appreciate how much you do for us- thank you.

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I truly love waking up and coming to work every day. It is a great work place, space and environment. The people here make it worth it!

    Cons

    There is nothing at this time I'd call a con as I could still work by the beach if needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being you!

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Pay is market, and there's tons of room for raises and advancement. Opportunities to try something outside of your wheelhouse. Fantastic culture of working hard, playing hard, and supporting each other as a team.

    Cons

    Hours can be long sometimes, and management gets shuffled around a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Continuity is important. Sometimes priorities change so quickly, there's not really time to execute and evaluate.

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Deeply satisfying work with the Talent Solutions team
    -Lots of workplace flexibility (ergonomic assessments to ensure you're physically comfortable, ability to work from home or virtually without judgment)
    -Incredibly welcoming and open culture: people feel free to be their authentic selves ALL the time.
    -Pillars of wellness are introduced in orientation and upheld across the org: meditation rooms and discounts on headspace meditation app, water stations everywhere, great food made by gifted chefs, etc.
    -Amazing benefits from perk up ($2k a year for gym memberships, classes, or massages) to health care and parental benefits

    Cons

    -Too many systems means horrible inconsistency when trying to share information
    -IT is not always helpful: a google search is sometimes more effective
    -

    Advice to Management

    Please tell our CTO and the internal IT leadership that we need a serious IT overhaul - pick core systems and go with a "less is more" attitude. Too many systems means we keep information in too many places, making accurate info really hard to identify.

    Pros

    Really friendly coworkers, great food, laid-back atmosphere.

    Cons

    If you're ambitious but not good at "politicking," it's pretty hard to thrive here. More than anywhere else I've been, your success depends on how much your manager cares about you.

    Pros

    I've been at LinkedIn for 4 years and continue to be impressed and humbled to call it home. At every level, they truly care about their employees as people first, as team members and our development. They not only support, but encourage employees to be their best selves now and in the future.

    Cons

    I truly don't have any cons

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hands down best place I have ever worked. You are surrounded by smart people in a culture where you can be
    yourself. Sales is performanced based with zero cap. If you are looking to take it easy this is not the place for you. Hitting your numbers is expected and rewarded. Leadership is amazing, always working hard to make the company better with a focus on the consumer.

    Cons

    SaaS sales quotas can be tough, I would not call that a LinkedIn con but the performanced based culture is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Do not leave anytime soon. The awesome culture is a direct result of our most senior leaders.
