      Best company I've worked with so far! I love LinkedIn!

      Pros

      Based out in Singapore office. Fast paced, exciting, dynamic, and best of all... people treat each other beautifully! Although we have drastically grown in size, LinkedIn still encourages a good level of innovation and risk taking. Inspiring and transparent leadership and a great HR team who truly cares for every single employee. Awesome benefits, perks and delicious free food everyday! You bring home happiness... and you can also bring your home to work! Work life balance is not encouraged... work-life harmony is! Ultimately at its core, there is a distinctively different and very strong sense of culture and values at LinkedIn which fundamentally holds the entire company and its employees together. You'll have to experience to believe! It's a wonderful thing!

      Cons

      This place can be very rough / challenging if one is unable to find a fit into... (1) the strong culture and values (2) getting stuff done (fast!), knowing how to have fun, dreaming big (3) accepting continuous feedback in a non-defensive way (4) being open to changing and transforming oneself for the better If all checks on the above... oh my goodness you are gonna have a blast!

      Pros

      Good compensation Good benefits Free food Not much to do

      Cons

      Good for kids. If you are in your mid 40s to early 50s, this company is perfect. No one would notice if you don’t show up for days then come back for 1 or 2 meetings. Meanwhile you can take the competitive salary and use the name to find a new job. If you are someone in your late 20s to early 40s, you will enjoy it for a bit but you won’t learn much and it will reflect as you interview for roles that require proper experience. Relatively easy sell as sales are only competing with their own online linkedin products. There is no solution selling as the company is just selling their “member ship database” in 3 different formats. As a result, too much free time on hand. 2 groups of leadership. Experienced hires from legit tech firms who are enjoying the no stress environment and can’t be bothered to do anything since they made it. Inexperienced leaders with no true enterprise selling experience, some of those were let go and moved back to US.

      Don't take an Account Exec role - hire and fire environment

      Dec 13, 2016 - Account Executive 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      As a whole a good place to work with excellent benefits. Free food and snacks, good parties, company wide trip to Vegas etc. Generally - the people at LinkedIn are awesome and you will meet a number of friends for life here.

      Cons

      Below the very top level - generally poor quality management. The reality is that LinkedIn offers a great working environment but doesn't pay above the industry average so doesn't attract the very best managers - for ambitious ones it is more a good place for them to get on their CV then move on to a well paid role in another tech firm. Account exec role isn't structured to do large deals - you do one deal and pass the account onto a relationship manager. Companies more often than not use a first deal to test the solution on a small user group. Causes much frustration amongst AE's as they put a lot of work in for a small deal - then a year later a less experienced RM takes an order (often after very little effort or customer interaction) for a much bigger deal and gets all the credit. The Account Exec role is very hire and fire. In the time I was there a number of AE's got terminated in their first year (often for missing one quarter of target, or simply because their manager didn't like them). No Relationship Managers (or sales managers/directors) were fired in that period - it is a much easier and better role - although not fulfilling if you're an out and out salesperson that wants to do deals - they generally just process renewals and the quality of salesperson in the RM world is much lower. Lots of uncertainty with recent Microsoft acquisition - culture will almost certainly change for the worse and who knows what kind of place LinkedIn will be to work in a year.
