Global Sales Organization

January 1970

While leadership is still dominated by white men, there is clearly an effort to dispel that and many women are rising to leadership positions. The majority of mentors I've had are women who have worked their way up. They have many programs for women to support one another and initiatives in place to continue to diversify the workforce. Lots of opportunity--teammates on maternity leave seem to be treated fairly and accommodated justly.

Business Analytics

January 1970

I view ethnic/cultural diversity as a bigger problem then gender diversity here (though one can drive the other). Analytics can be somewhat chinese culture driven, while engineering somewhat indian culture driven. This leads to differences in how people socialize regardless of gender, but I sometimes feel like I must go out of my way to appear especially technical and competent as a woman, at first meetings with engineers or managers, if I don't want to be dismissed. Generally Business Analytics team has high female representation, and I find my problems are with other teams.

Marketing/Advertising Operations

January 1970

I think that LinkedIn is a great company to work at, and can look amazing to outsiders given all of the perks for employees and its mission statement to create a supportive culture. However, do not be fooled into thinking that any corporate establishment is void of at least some small amount of discrimination against women. Whether men or women are aware of the segregation or not, women do have to go an extra step further at this company to be seen as an authority or expert at their role. Men on my team are typically given more projects than the women and are promoted to team lead/manager positions more frequently. It seems to take less effort for men to gain respect. And whether they know it or not, it is inherent in a man's nature to speak down to women (our culture has embedded this into us). Again, this is something seen in all workplace environments to some degree. This statement is just a warning that just because you came to work at LinkedIn, does not mean you will be guarded from these every day experiences and frustrations.

The company is still working out the kinks. There are some groups that are better than others. The group I was in, ended up being a "boys club".

Be very cognizant of the group you are going into and who your manager is. Your success totally depends on how much your manager wants you to succeed.

LinkedIn is amazing. LinkedIn truly cares about it's employees. You are not a number here. I've been here for over seven years and couldn't imagine a better work environment.

Strategic Support Rep

Sales Solutions

January 1970

The entrepreneurial spirit is alive here. If you're wanting to have an opportunity to "act like an owner" this is the place. I am not micro-managed at all and have the ability to make important decisions. Everyone has equal chance to be promoted and they encourage you to apply for a promotion whenever possible. I also find LinkedIn extremely accommodating to pregnant and new mothers/fathers. The flexibility with our schedules is so helpful when dealing with our children.
