    Native tech stack leads to less exposure to industry trends, career progression depends a lot on the team you are part of.

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance Fantastic culture, company actually cares about it's people Smart people Great perks. Food, gym, lots of stuff expensed, tons of events Very flexible and open to internal transfers and career moves Great compensation. Very stable under Microsoft umbrella Jeff was a great CEO.

    Cons

    Management level can apparently get politic-y but as a engineer you're mostly shielded from it. Bureaucracy and red tape can get frustrating when interacting across different large orgs Communicating across different time zones can be difficult

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at LinkedIn for less than a year

    Pros

    Never in my life would I have imagined participating in such an immersive and engaging internship experience, let alone through a global pandemic. Despite working remotely and never meeting colleagues in person, the relationships I forged were stronger than ever. The GSO Intern program places its interns across a variety of different functions and teams (sales, customer success, implementation processes, etc.), thus enabling one another to learn about the vast sales ecosystem that comprises a global company. There are about a million ways to get involved and add real value in the short 12 weeks, and while most team managers have general ideas for projects to work on, you pretty much have free reign on anything you decide to pursue. While it's no surprise that it's in your best interest to add legitimate value to the team you're a part of, some of the coolest projects I have already seen directly build on LinkedIn's culture. All in all, I'm feeling beyond lucky to have had these last several weeks to cultivate new relationships. If there's one thing to take advantage of in your short time, it's to leverage the extraordinary internal networking opportunities. You're assigned a manager, a mentor, AND a BLP buddy (that's an amazing system of support)! I'm lucky to have joined a team that has made me feel like family right from the get-go, and will forever cherish the lasting friendships I have made.

    Cons

    Sitting in front of a laptop (rather than being at the office) is tough. The work-life balance is great, but as an intern, you feel obligated to maximize each week to the fullest. I sincerely hope next year's interns have an opportunity to get to the office :) Beyond that, I have no complaints. Grateful for what has been a terrific journey.
