    I worked at LinkedIn full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Location. Health benefits and Perks (I do not consider "free lunch" a benefit) The reputation of the company and the product being sold. Looks good on CV

    Cons

    Extrovert-only career progression, favoritism, discrimination, lack of management guidance disguised as "empowerment", not even, fair nor equitable remuneration. Too many events that get in the way of doing the job! The alleged culture gets in the way. You won't get promoted if you don't take part on the million InDays, after work gatherings or general non-work related events. Your manager and management chain better...

    Advice to Management

    Learn to *manage* people.
