    I worked at LinkedIn full-time

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Nice suite of products and a team of intelligent product experts
    - Resources for all your tech needs

    Cons

    - Overly political and hierarchical for a seemingly "hip" company
    - Forced "fun" with almost too many nights out and trips away for team building
    - Significant overtime just part of the expectation, while clear goals and path to success missing

    Advice to Management

    Examine the actual productivity and happiness within your teams.
    Be honest with yourselves and employees when toxic behaviour arises.

    Pros

    Flexibility starting times as long as hours are made

    Be a leader, not a boss. Listen to the feedback and don't be so defensive

    Pros

    + Solutions/Products
    + Autonomy
    + Great first line managers and leaders
    + Office
    + Perks and Benefits
    + Nice work life balance

    Cons

    - Work a little bit repetitive. LinkedIn portfolio is too precise and easy to understand.
    - Too much concentrate in Dublin, few opportunities in local markets.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest moving Mid Market positions to country. This will help customer relations (mid market customers expect a better relations) and employees career development.

    Pros

    Absolutely brilliant people to work with
    Culture

    Office space and benefits are amazing
    Work is incredibly interesting and tonnes of career progression opportunities
    Work/life balance

    Cons

    I worked at LinkedIn previously for a couple of years in sales and had a fantastic experience. My review is solely on interviewing this year to return where I unfortunately had a very poor experience. I was brought to final round for a similar role to the one I was previously in, I felt that the interviewer had already decided not to hire me from the beginning of the interview based on my previous numbers in my last few months as an employee. This was something I was transparent about from the get go but he had not bothered to look into until the very end of the process. Phrases were used such as 'why aren't you considering x or y employer' ' Do you not think a role in X might suit you better, less stress for you' ) Basically hinting at the fact that I am a working mother. I was really disappointed by the interview and felt I didn't have a chance at all to sell myself or speak on the other areas of my experience. All in all I felt it was a very haughty, close minded interview and I have heard very similar things from people interviewing there recently

    Advice to Management

    Take feedback from interviewees and take their experience into account to make changes, don't become a 'Google' where people don't even want to apply because they hear your process is so poor. You are an amazing place to work but being arrogant about that and thinking you can treat people less than fairly because of it will significantly damage your reputation in the market place, as I've been hearing from so many candidates lately

    I worked at LinkedIn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary
    Great benefits
    Great location
    Great food

    Cons

    Everyone is expected to be excited about everything, all the time. Too may parties and too much focus on fun, but it is required as the jobs are very boring. It’s very simple business and there is loads of repetition in the daily routines.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people really to dare to be different and challenge them more. People are not striving to excel, but to get off easily and enjoy the ride. Those with real capabilities do not want to stay in this environment.

    Pros

    An amazing place to work. Better than imagined. You are surrounded by very clever and talented people. Everyone is has some kind of speciality in their own way and it’s always intersting to find out. Oh and the food is unbelievable. It’s like going to a high end restaurant every lunch break.

    Cons

    If you are not careful you can life in a bubble after joining. Only see talk and hear from work people. Spend your entire time with them at work and in your free time.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a great job!
