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

    Pros

    Company values and adherence to them (be open, honest & constructive).
    Transparency is not just a word, it's shown in actions by the executive team.
    The outstanding leadership team and commitment to developing leaders within the company.
    The ability to make a difference, for the world, and at the company. Great ideas are listened to, and you're given the runway to execute quickly.
    Taking risks is okay, learning from mistakes is welcomed -- all with good judgement.
    The caliber of employees is incredible, which is an enabler ("a rising tide") that lifts the overall performance of other employees and the company.
    The perks and offices / workspaces are top notch.
    A harmony between work and life balance exists and is respected.

    Cons

    Growing pains with moving quickly, but this is the cost of working in technology.
    More diversity would be welcomed and they're actively working to make this happen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    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

    Approves of CEO

    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.

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

    Pros

    To work for a company who has a mission I can align myself with combined with truly genuine, smart people I couldn't be happier. LinkedIn practices what they preach and this is incredibly refreshing. LinkedIn has some of the best benefits I've seen in the 10+ years I've worked in sales - as a 10K+ employee company it is incredible that we have grown around the world while continuing to attract the brightest and best talent in the market. I am so fortunate to be a part of this team and couldn't imagine myself anywhere else!

    Cons

    Coming from small organizations previously, it is a big company and sometimes you can feel a bit lost.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work, Jeff Weiner is truly incredible!

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time

    Pros

    1. Amazing, smart, and compassionate people.
    2. Great benefits (encourage wellness, work life balance, and giving back to the community)
    3. Inclusive + Belonging culture (Thoughtful about all types of employees. Being an introvert, I was nervous about being able to speak up in meetings, etc. I was over the moon when I discovered that they had a workshop specifically about being and introvert).

    Cons

    More transparency about where employees are on the pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continue to walk the walk. We appreciate the continued vision and for being brought in for the ride to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce.
