Famous Quotes – Linkedin Arrogance

From a ValleyWag article titled: 

Linkedin: “Where the PR is hot but the business is not

“we are going to every group and telling them the facts that we missed our goals again and that Bain is really mad”

– Unidentified LinkedIn executive as quoted in a Valleywag Blog Post

Worst of all we have now missed every financial objective set by Bain Capital after investing $50M in us. Not once but twice we have missed revenue and bottom line goals. The debate about who’s fault this is is lively enough that one can tickle each manager for trouble and they will throw each other under the LinkedIn bus. (By the way management got a minibus to ferry almost no one to work from San Francisco because Google does it, (CEO penis envy) but the staff joke that the bus is to throw people under in this culture where the PR is hot but the business is not)

From a ValleyWag article titled: 

Linkedin: “Where the PR is hot but the business is not

A LinkedIn tipster tells us that even as the all-business social network raised $53 million from Bain Capital and other investors in June, at a $1 billion valuation, it sought to pull in another $25 million from Goldman Sachs and failed. More damningly, he claims that CEO Dan Nye lied on-air when he told Fox Business earlier this summer that the company is profitable.
