      Just because it was acquired doesn't mean it's not a company lol

      LinkedIn is a subsidiary of Microsoft, but it is still a company. Just not an independent company.

      It would only not be a company anymore if Linkedin was dissolved completely.

    I would say the hiring bar and engineering talent from what I’ve seen is higher at LinkedIn than Apple.

    Benefits are much better, obviously.

      This. I feel it's a borderline Tier 1. IMO they need to innovate more to be a true tier 1.

      I feel like innovation seems to vary a lot across the orgs in LI

    What are the traditional tier-1 companies? Google, Facebook, and Netflix?

    I'd say they're tier1 but definitely on the lower end

    You can't have it all. If the WLB is good then it will have less output from the engineers and then less prestige

      They could also be good at attracting and hiring productive engineers.
