    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Where do I start. Amazing benefits and perks. On-site restaurant that sometimes serves Michelin star type of meals. Collaborative, fun working environment.

    Cons

    LinkedIn has an amazing Diversity program called DIBs(Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging), but still has a lot of work to do in terms of having a truly diverse employee base. They need to hire more tenured folks in addition to folks with diverse backgrounds. Work life balance also needs to be encouraged broadly and not just implemented by some managers.

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - People!
    - Holiday and 4th of July shutdowns, in addition to Discretionary Time Off
    - Breakfast and lunch
    - Culture and focus on the talent. It's a company about talent, and they do really focus on career development and growth. I've been able to have very honest and open conversations with managers that i haven't been able to have at other companies.
    - Maternity leave

    Cons

    - Some departments are starting to feel a bit more big company. The original culture of collaboration has sometimes started to become a culture of consensus. Other teams don't feel this pain, but the team i was on did.
    - Internal mobility is getting a bit more difficult as you get more senior. They're open to having conversations so you can navigate, but specific opps are becoming less and less available.

    Pros

    Great leadership and focus on culture, career development, and global good. One of the best run companies in the world.

    Cons

    Very large now, a lot more red tape and politics than when it was smaller. Future as a part of MSFT is still unclear.

    Pros

    LinkedIn positions each rep to be successful year over year
    Long term career potential post LinkedIn

    Growth and movement are encouraged within the company and if you make your intentions clear, LinkedIn will support you toward said goal.

    Cons

    Consistency in leadership due to promotions and awesome maternity leave (6 months) - it’s a good problem to have but exists nonetheless.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure employees receive real-world training resources

    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.

    Pros

    The people, leadership and values. You truly beleive in the vision and path of LinkedIn. From Jeff Weiner down to the front line.

    Cons

    A bit siloed but a work in progress. You need to have initiative to be successful here and figure out the inner workings and systems.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Continue to invest in the people and vision to change the world.

    Pros

    Culture, leadership, perks, benefits, brand, great solutions, training - pretty much the best job you can have as a sales rep.

    Cons

    Very competitive and hard to move up. The company is getting so big that more layers of leadership are being added, and you have less access to things and people. When you work on something, it's such a tiny piece and hard to see your impact.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing an amazing job given everything.

    I have been working at LinkedIn (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many talented people, good culture & values, clear mission, sound strategy, top-notch benefits including great food, strong CEO, lots of opportunity, cool campuses, company all-hands, InDays, founder still involved

    Cons

    Too many incompetent but hot headed sales leaders and reps, weak divisional marketing leadership especially LSS and GMO, product team has been slow to execute, insufficient engineering bench strength, arrogant people, overly entitled employees, siloed orgs, complete lack of collaboration inside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Lots going well overall, but here's some advice. Invest a lot more in your product to make it a daily habit, drastically increase and improve engineering talent (there are way too many bugs for a company of Linkedin's caliber), quickly make changes to the LSS/GMO marketing leadership, rotate out all the hot headed sales leaders who have struggled to grow their books, motivate your sales reps to work much harder.
