  • Strong TAC and excellent work life balance. LinkedIn lets you set your own pace for career growth.

  • Great values around diversity, equality, friendly environment.

  • Great culture. Great care of employees and true care of users

  • Dev stack gets in the way. Lots of pressure/incentive to use LinkedIn internal tools rather than best tools from the community.

  • Work can be a bit slow / bureaucratic, some people will hide behind bureaucracy to avoid work. Doc writing feels more important than engineering sometimes.

  • Projects move too slowly, lots of meetings, and inadequate tech

“If you are selected to move to the interview phase, you’ll next meet with several more team members. Each interview will focus on a different skill area and is a great opportunity to meet new people, learn more about the role and ask any questions you have.”


“Depending on the role, you may be asked to do a whiteboard exercise - your recruiter will share everything you need to know ahead of time. Every interviewer takes notes to share back with the hiring team."
