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

    Pros

    - Great perks and benefits - wellness program is fantastic
    - Investment Day
    - Catered breakfast / lunch
    - Work with some truly smart people
    - Good work is rewarded
    - Prime office location

    Cons

    - Mediocre and immature middle management, full of unconscious bias, little empathy, uninspiring
    - No room to progress, flat structure
    - Not high on diversity, inclusion and belonging conditional - you must fit in. People who do fit in are rewarded, those who don't are sidelined. Too much pressure to be 'authentic' - comes across as the opposite.
    - Shiny on the surface, bad politics beneath the surface
    - Too many distractions
    - Very hierarchal

    Advice to Management

    Middle management needs to up its game. Identify who is cut out for these roles and provide them with quality training or replace them with managers who are. Managers who do not represent their teams in the way employees need them to. Weed out unconscious biases in managers - it muddies the pool in a major way. Its not just about making numbers, but looking after your people.
