Entirely, LinkedIn is the best corporate networking platform helping me and other startups gain exposure to more organization that may either convert into customers or collaborators like friends. It's a good platform to showcase your business culture to potential employees so that your next hire will be from LinkedIn itself.

Pros

I liked the network management on LinkedIn, where I can find indirect connections in other companies to get more exposure. I can get notification or updates regarding my network that make this platform very corporate friendly.

Also, I can message or directly promote a product to my network, either by public posts or messaging. This helps me know my potential clients know better.

Cons

Only thing that bother me is that promotional mails from LinkedIn as this annoys me.

Overall, my experience with LinkedIn Business has been great. The new features of LinkedIn learning added to our enterprise now have been doing exceptionally well. It has greatly helped in the personal development of our employees

Pros

Feel like this software at this point does not have a competitor when it comes to building formal relationships. In the last three years, we have heavily relied on this application for recruiting or job postings. We have been able to attract a lot of candidates through this way.

Cons

Compared to other softwares, this one is a little expensive. Otherwise, I feel there's nothing least about this software.
