Great benefits but poor middle management
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – 29 May 2015
Though its known for great work/life balance and you get great benefits,great food and interact with friendly, smart co-workers, the work/life balance part does not really hold true if you have a bad manager. There is a side to this company that really needs to improve - it has really inexperienced middle level management and almost no accountability for the manager - they can pretty much do what they want and no one holds them accountable. Unfortunately, your life can be difficult at LinkedIn if you have a bad supervisor. Upper management is great though. Investigate prospective manager and team thoroughly before accepting an offer.
Free lunches, lots of social activities on campus, Hack days, freebies, great leadership team
Not much work/life balance, ineffective communication within teams and supervisors, some groups operate in silos, unrealistic expectations and timelines
