I have been working at LinkedIn as a contractor (Less than a year)
Onsite benefits (Food, shuttles, company allhands, gym)
Can not participate in Full Time Employee benefits
ie: InDay, speaker series, no free t shirts,
Majority of this team is contracted (one of the biggest contracted teams besides security and food services
- as a contractor you are not allowed to talk about career development unless you are converted into a full time employee.
- You can only focus on your core role which is to schedule interviews and candidate experience
- only take this role if you are okay with a contracted role.
- There is a lot of gray unknown area when in this role (no job security)
Advice to Management
Understand the needs of your contracted team. There is a lack of belonging moments as a contractor and it makes the job mundane.
Be more transparent about business needs and job security. Be more sensitive that if we remain contractors we will not stay forever.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at LinkedIn (South San Francisco, CA (US)) in July 2015.
I had an initial phone screen with a consultant that went well despite the fact that the consultant called 15 minutes late. Next I had another phone interview with someone from the recruiting team. Again, a positive experience. Finally I had a third phone interview with the hiring manager. That interview lasted only 20 minutes because the hiring manager also called late, and was in a rush.
I was invited to come to headquarters to interview by the recruiter but at some point in the process of working around hiring manager's schedule, that never got confirmed. Unfortunately, the lack of time and attention given by the hiring manager turned me off somewhat in the process, and I probably wasn't that interested. Also interesting note that the final word about the outcome came in an email from the recruiter at 1:00 in the morning. I guess they work some crazy hours at LinkedIn.
