    Pros

    Food is great, work life balance can be good depending on your role and boss.

    Cons

    - "culture" one of the words you'll hear most while working at LinkedIn is collaboration. However, sales targets are very high and individual so, naturally, does not foster collaboration but they will force you to collaborate by taking on projects that move you away from your core role. - Too many social events and not very parent friendly as they all occur after work. - Too many internal initiatives that take time... off your day to day and quite useless in terms of the outcome but you have to take part if you want to get promoted. - LMS line of business is FULL of politics and only Irish people get promoted to management. - Many mediocre middle managers with a very infantile management style. - You need to suck up to all managers in the floor otherwise one or 2 may mess up your performance review (they call it callibration) even when you overachieve in results. - If you want to focus mostly or solely on your job, this may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    - You preach that you want a diverse workplace but don't really accept people that bring a different perspective, you want everyone aligned with the "cult-ture and values" - Set up individual+team targets if you really want to foster collaboration. - If you hire experienced people make sure you hire managers that are able to support the level of experience and intelligence.
