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

    Pros

    Overall LinkedIn is a great place to work. Interesting challenges and fun impactful things to work on. Good for work life balance and career growth as long as you are with the right manager/team. They can make work fantastic. Excited to see where Microsoft takes LinkedIn.

    Cons

    Lot's of re-organizations. I was at LinkedIn almost 6 years and my group was re-org'ed multiple times (4+ during that time).
    In some cases suffering from bad hires from years ago that were never corrected. This is both at the Manager and IC level.
    Like everywhere there are managers who are out for themselves first... be on the look out and gravitate to the great ones (as there are many).
    Has become an increasingly political environment where words like "executive sponsor" can trump big ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what to say here. Hopefully the good continues to outweigh the bad.

    It's hard to move up sometimes do to it been a big company.
