Does LinkedIn offer relocation assistance?

Pros

The benefits package is very compelling, and reflects an emphasis on taking care of their employees. The response the company/leadership has had to COVID-19 has been stunning. They are extremely transparent and open with regards to planning. In addition to adapting and accommodating, they have launched several things to help the world at large (re-purposing all of their recruiting for free for hospitals and such, direct money donations, increasing charity matching, providing many free memberships for displaced employees, and others)

Cons

The only con I have so seen so far is an over-emphasis on doing everything ourselves. There is a history of developing technology in-house which sometimes leads to incredible technology like kafka, but in other cases this is a barrier to getting up to speed, and can result in tools and technology that don't compete with some industry standards

Advice to Management

Please just keep what you're doing. I am genuinely impressed with how things are being run, and hope to see things continue as they are

Free Food , Free coffee, Decent Benefits Good place to start a career as a new grad There are a few great teams and managers so be careful which team you are joining.

Cons

Medical Benefits not top tier, Middle management is inexperienced. Promotion process driven by internal politics. Good place to start a career as a new grad , however not so for experienced individual contributors.

Does LinkedIn offer parental leave?

Pros

Life-changing opportunities, tons of training and development, autonomy, fun culture, super talented colleagues, incredible maternity leave compensation, great compensation and benefits, and I love the actual product (LinkedIn).

Cons

Super demanding, focus on negative feedback vs positive, tons of internal meetings, many internal projects with no follow through, hyper growth = huge quotas, quotas set by the half (not annual), internal competitiveness for promotions and recognition, US focused so Canada is often forgotten about or unaware of our holidays, laws, etc, management is hit or miss (either the best manager I’ve ever had or the worst).

Advice to Management

Please pay more attention to diversity with employees who want to work remote and thrive in a rural setting vs urban. Please help women in sales who are approaching and returning from mat leave to feel better supported - even (especially?) if there’s a global pandemic!

Does LinkedIn have a pension plan?

Pros

Good pension plan Amazing food Compensation plan quite fair and competitive

Cons

Paternity leave is a joke. If you are planning to become a father at some point, at the same time, they have amazing maternity benefits, the paternity benefits are just ridiculous. Tech companies much more smaller offer 12 weeks of paternity and they have 2 weeks + 4 of Parent´s leave (which by law is actually up to 5). Their culture of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging might look nice but when it comes to this, it is clear that at least in Ireland, the sexism is still there and from HR and Benefits team, they still think that only the mother is the one that need to take care of the newborn and it makes the father impossible to help her.

Good pension plan
