LinkedIn is Giving iPad Minis to Employees

Working at LinkedIn just got better as a place to work. The company is giving an iPad Mini to all of its employees. That’s at least 3,500 iPad Minis. They’ll all probably come loaded with the flashy LinkedIn iPad app that debuted last year.

Krista Canfield, senior Manager, corporate communications confirmed the news to AppNewser via email. She included the following statement:

We wanted to acknowledge the hard work and accomplishments of all of our employees in 2012. During today’s biweekly All Hands meeting, we surprised our employees with iPad Minis as a small gesture of the company’s gratitude for their contributions.

iPads aren’t the only thing that make LinkedIn a good place to work. According to GlassDoor.com, LinkedIn ranked No. 8 on the list of the top 25 companies for work-life balance.

LinkedIn is a growing company. According to the company’s website, LinkedIn had 3,458 full-time employees as of December 31st, 2012. That is up from 2,100 full-time employees in 2011.

These employees are located all over the world, with offices in Mountain View, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Omaha, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Bangalore, Delhi, Dubai, Dublin, Hong Kong, London, Madrid, Melbourne, Milan, Mumbai, Munich, Paris, Perth, São Paulo, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney, Tokyo and Toronto.
