LinkedIn - Why No one talks about it 🤫

Everyone here talks about FAANG, Msft, Uber, AirBnb. Just wondering why there is no talk about LinkedIn.

Given how close their product is to Facebook, but with more growth and earning potential (job search, Premium, ads), why do people overlook this company?

Is the compensation not at par with FAANG or is it something else?

      It is great. It is not as fast as Facebook, but not as slow as Google too. I feel it is very balanced. A lot of the stuff is in house and we do use latest technology, tools whenever we can. The culture in most teams/orgs is quite good with the management supporting you in your career growth, learning curve etc. Obviously some teams are not good, but that will be everywhere. And well, about the pay, perks and the food, everyone knows that

      I second the comment above. I personally think my team moves at a rapid speed. I don't have any prior FAANG experience so can't compare but from my limited personal experience I think people are motivated for most part.

      I have heard people at G just walk around with their dogs in the campus all day and eat free food.

    There is no work life balance there. No work only life.

      Lol. As an ex-amazonian, I would say it depends on team just like amazon.

    LinkedIn pay and benefits are pretty incredible. Also way less effed than FB or Amazon for sure!

    Good place to work but it has no prestige beyond tech. No one knows cares about LinkedIn other than a month or two before they are looking for a job change. Also they don't market anything fancy they are doing to improve the perception of the company either. It just looks like a sparingly used website to most people.

      If prestige outside tech matters, I tell people I work for Microsoft, which is not false.

    I heard it described at a hotel for devs. Nobody has anything to do but eat food and go to the gym and just loaf around and look busy.

      🤫 Now there will be layoffs, because you let them know they could do it with half the people.

    Is TC not comparable to FAANG because of lack of refreshers?

      TC more than FAANG for top performers.

    Cant comment on LI from an employee perspective. But from a job seeker perspective, they are certainly the best people I have encountered. Very responsive recruiter, very respectful interviewers and a process that is not meant to demean the applicant.

    From a product perspective, I leave it to the current employees to comment on the "fancy" aspect.

    They have many B2B products and most B2B products are not really fancy or not something you might have even heard of outside the circle. Starmine anyone?
