    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at LinkedIn full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All the regular perks of a tech company - unlimited paid vacation, in addition to 1 week paid time off over Christmas, as well as July 4th. Free food, snacks, drinks. Casual atmosphere - you can wear pretty much anything you want. Full of tattoos and piercings? They embrace that.

    Cons

    Never get too comfortable with anyone in a leadership position. You can think that you are best friends, and that they really like and respect you; then turn on you on a dime.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending to embrace the supposed "Culture and Values" when you know that you will do whatever is in your best interest; even if it means terminating your most valuable, and highly productive employees.

    Pros

    Hands down one of the best tech companies to work for! They care immensely about each employee's development and really want to help you achieve your career goals. They are also large enough to tackle major technical challenges, but small enough to avoid the bureaucracy that hold back many larger firms. Additionally, the food (3 free meals a day) and perks are top notch (not to mention the SF skyscraper)!

    Cons

    The company seems to becoming too much like Facebook...
