    Great culture
    Very high standard of colleague
    Room to grow
    Genuinely challenging and motivating
    Great senior management
    Open Honest Constructive
    Amazing Perks

    Cons

    Nothing is Free - you work extremely Hard for what you get! (No complaints here)
    Sales Quotas / Targets can be used to punish overachieving
    Top performers get screwed
    New layer of middle management offer nothing!

    Advice to Management

    LinkedIn Marketing Solutions has some amazing AE's / CSM's - not enough get promoted to management. We instead hire Google's left-overs... not good enough for a company that wants to lead and talks about economic opportunity etc!
    We then have mangers running teams who don't understand the core role - and just talk in Management Jargon to avoid looking silly.

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

    Pros

    LinkedIn is one of the best employers I have worked for. Even though the company is expanding, management is making sure it's values are kept. As a sales rep you can work very autonomous and are responsible for your own approach and results, which I enjoyed a lot. Another pro is that there are great opportunities to progress.

    Cons

    Not really a contra but for people who are not used to fast paced environments it can be challenging in the beginning.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Location of the office
    Design of the office

    Cons

    The fakest organization I have ever seen in my life. Everyone is pretending they love the company and their managers just to get promotions. Salaries are low, and free lunch is not even something to brag about. There is no career development at all although they do a lot of marketing of it internally. If you are from a strong company, do not even think about joining Linkedin as your colleagues and managers would be less qualified than you.

    Advice to Management

    How about reading the cons part of the reviews and taking some real action? You are constantly losing your best talent.
