LinkedIn is absolutely committed to ensuring that women are treated fair and equally.
The climate is getting better and there's a very strong focus. But, I want us to lead the conversation and have the best options for moms and families
I have found LinkedIn to be an inspiring place to work and I have been lucky enough to have received many opportunities to develop and remain challenged
LinkedIn does a wonderful job focusing on how to make the employee experience wonderful. That being said, it is not just the company's responsibility to ensure each employee is taking advantage of everything offered to them - it is the individual's job to make sure they are taking advantage of all the benefits offered.
I've worked here for over a year now and there are a lot of inspiring women at the company. However, they are concentrated in sales and HR roles. The more technical the role becomes, you see a decrease in the amount of women in those roles, especially in leadership positions at the company. However, my team right now is mostly women, my boss is an inspiring woman, and not many judge women who need to work from home or take sick leave for their family.
I think they are trying to make women feel included, but it really depends on your level and proximity to leadership. Some members of leadership can make it feel like a boys' club.
This company is all about visibility - unfortunately quiet and hard working does not get you to the top. You need to be prepared to push your way through, very aggressively. Far more men get promoted far more often because of their boisterous demeanor.
It is hard to get promoted if you are a woman. if you are bold and speak your mind, you are branded too aggressive. If not, you are a door mat. There is no winning.
Women are well-represented in supporting and more 'mid-level' manager roles but ZERO on the executive team except for (you guessed it) HR and Marketing. Would like to see that change.
Flex time is not available and promotions appear to be given out randomly. A lot of embittered individuals on the team who stay because they don't know where else to go. Job satisfaction is low in 50% of the team.
