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

    Pros

    I've been at LinkedIn for 2+ years and have never believed more in the C-suite leadership of a company! The senior leaders here truly keep all employees informed and inspired, and I love the people I get to work with day to day.

    Cons

    We've become a pretty large company, so it can feel easy when not based at Headquarters or in the Bay Area to feel a little farther away from the action and knowing who to go to for what information. On the whole though everyone is here to help connect the dots.

    Incompetent people - Nice does not mean they are smart and can do their job
    Too much effort to promote its company culture

    Political - once your area is crossed off from investment, you are done
