    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get amazing benefits - wellness allowance, shares at Microsoft, subsidised health insurance for you and your family, onsite gym and free classes, free breakfast and lunch every day. I work in sales and one of the other benefits is that every year, they send all sales people overseas to their regional sales kick off.

    Generally, I feel like management is very good at listening to feedback. There is a culture of providing and taking in feedback and engagement surveys are run every 6 months or so. After the results are in, there is time taken to review it and share it with employees (at the company, regional, local and team level). Honestly, an amazing place to work!

    Cons

    The base pay isn't great but when you factor in all of the benefits you get, it works out.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employee feedback

    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.
