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

    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.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Get to work with brilliant people (especially my manager, who also doubles as a great mentor for me). Great perks (free food, free coffee bar rivals starbucks, free juice bar, free ice cream bar, just free bars.. i can go on), great energy in the company to get things done (motivated by a sense of how much of a difference the products make in the lives of people in earning their livelihood or taking it to the next level). feel proud to work here

    Cons

    company in rapid growth mode, so processes still maturing.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, wonderful work culture (in theory), CHRO is phenomenal, leadership is outstanding

    Cons

    Product is becoming a commodity, it's expensive and they keep raising the price making in harder to sell. They are now public and have been bought by Microsoft so culture will likely erode even more.

    Advice to Management

    Add more value before another price increase. Keep loyal customers.
    All rapid growth must slow, don't panic, don't put so much pressure on sales, you will lose good people and the ones who stay will burn out.

    Pros

    - Relatively big ownership as a PM
    - Data-driven executions under an inspiring vision
    - Company still taking venture bet on new products
    - Established product org with a strong culture. Mentorship, knowledge sharing, mature planning process...name anything a solid PM is looking for.
    - Great perks

    Cons

    - Getting political, especially within the layers of mid to senior management.
    - Getting risk-averse.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more leaders who excel at building products, and less who excels at politics.
