    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has ambition and heart, is true to values, is trustworthy, has fantastic leadership. Engineering is turning out the best products ever, delivering amazing tools for business and an increasingly rich experience for members. Insights and reporting are getting better every day. Offices are state of the art. Colleagues are great people. Lots of opportunity to grow and advance.

    Cons

    Sales process is cumbersome, as a result of the limitations of tools and software on the back end.

    Advice to Management

    Think about how the sales process hinders ability to drive revenue at scale. Put the customer experience first in all decisions related to corporate contracting & billing. Keep on taking bold, inspiring leaps forward for the good of every employable human being on earth. Start considering ways that Microsoft and LinkedIn and the Gates Foundation could eradicate the digital divide.

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Culture has scaled with the org because of great leadership
    - Benefits are pretty good
    - Lot's of smart people to learn from
    - Continuing education encouraged

    Cons

    - Some questionable hires in the past year, less inspiring people
    - Pay is very average, could definitely be paid more at most tech companies in the city. You make much more money working for one of the American offices even when comparing it to the cost of living in each city
    - Although benefits are good, in Canada you're given much less than the US based offices. For example, no unlimited vacation (actually very little vacation, only 3 weeks), the US offices actually shut down the 4th of July week as well, services like massages etc. not offered in Canada
    - Sales effectiveness is not super effective. Not great sales training in general, tasks more so just waste your time
    - Internal movement is very difficult and extremely time consuming

    Advice to Management

    Understand what you can share with employees and what you can't and really be transparent with employees.

    Pros

    So many pros to a career with LinkedIn. Great company culture, amazing products, strong values. Canadian leader, Jonathan Lister, is a strong voice in the company (global sales leader for sales solutions business) and is well respected in the tech community both in Canada and abroad.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for management/leadership roles within the Toronto office. Most need to move internationally within the company or will leave to pursue these opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to better integrate with Microsoft in Canada to surface opportunities for employees that are challenged to find them at LinkedIn. We need to find a way to retain top talent.

    I have been working at LinkedIn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing culture and work-life balance. The people for the most part are great and happy to be there. Great perks. Free lunch everyday of the week and generally an inclusive environment where the company strives to have all employees feel welcomed. Having the LinkedIn brand and data behind what your selling is powerful and makes for an easier sale. Top level leadership is generally great. The company has vision and works towards living out its mission.

    Cons

    Opportunities to grow and develop are limited. Lots of ambiguity on people decisions and subject to group think and politics. Large variance in the quality of salespeople. Some level of complacency exists on many teams with people simply happy to be there and not demand excellence of themselves. Kool-aid can be overwhelming. Just a satellite sales office for LinkedIn. Microsoft influence is growing.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge yourselves to dig deeper and evaluate the impact you and your people are having. Make decisions based on merit and results. Avoid falling victim to politics in a small office and welcome the role of devils advocate. Show vulnerability to your team and solicit honest feedback before your reps become jaded.

    Pros

    Great mission and people! The company wants the people who work there to become better versions of themselves both professionally and personally. I've been there two years now and have been loving every single moment of it. My learning trajectory has grown significantly since I've been there.

    Cons

    Only con is that the Kool-Aid is a bit too much at times. Aside from that, not many cons to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep inspiring and pushing people to be better versions of themselves.
