    I worked at Intralinks (More than a year)

    Pros

    Maintains perception despite being flawed

    Cons

    There is NO opportunity despite what they'll promise Product use cases are narrow and overpriced Idea of marketing is to throw top dollar cocktail parties and not traditional BtoB Field roles are not supported or valued There are a high volume of expensive figureheads collecting checks Corporate was originally in NYC, the staff there is snobbish and rude Old school practices, everyone is a middle aged white man unless in development Organization has the practices of a Fortune 500, covered in red tape Sales and marketing leadership is inept, lacking the interpersonal skills and finesse, they do not lead, they dictate and delegate Environment is toxic and unethical Exit strategy is apparent HR is not present

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders like Ron and less like those in sales and marketing Open your ears as those who speak often have something of value to say Respect your staff, karma does exist and hierarchy lives only in your head

    Talent is being driven out. Investment in good employees sparse.

    Pros

    Youthful environment Lots of intriguing promises being stated about growth

    Cons

    Clear across the company that seemingly random clear outs of talent are part of hidden plan to secure a sale of company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop double talk. Create a fair playing field across the company. This includes treatment of work force and checks and balances among ELT conduct. Eliminate the corruption. Listen to the employees and follow through to rectify issues.

    I worked at Intralinks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good time off policy, ability to work remote. Efforts to improve.

    Cons

    Fragmented, executives unable to gain and push down cross functional alignment. Leaders can't make timely decisions. New ideas go to and die by committee. Distributed workforce makes for difficult communication and fosters rogue actions. Non-existent work life balance. Good ole boys club mentality. Zero risk tolerance to innovate, slow to produce anything. Don't appreciate 'A' players. Culture of backstabbing and do what it takes to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Add more leaders that can transform the company into a more efficient and effective organization. Take some risk, remove unnecessary obstacles to innovation.

    Pros

    - Free Coffee - Travel opportunities

    Cons

    - Politics, cronyism and bureaucracy run amok - Unable to innovate - Employees not treated fairly or with respect and dignity - Shifting, nonsensical strategy - Frequent opportunistic firings and layoffs - Zero ownership or accountability - Overreaching legal department stifles everything - Cultureless, boring work environment - Suburban office

    Advice to Management

    Look yourself in the mirror and ask the question: will we be able to hire and retain top talent given the way we treat employees?

    I worked at Intralinks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Vending machine discounts were pretty good , some people were cool and that's about it!

    Cons

    Felt like I went back in time 90's or 80's, the ERP system was a dinosaur and the excel models were clunky and time consuming (copy/paste from one to another every week), not enough time to analysis any type of data. Meetings with leadership were painful . My grand-mom always said "penny wise dollar foolish".

    Advice to Management

    Update your financial systems and improve the culture of the company. as my manager who was used to working there for years and never changed or will change, people like that are the cancer of any company.

    Pros

    work life was pretty nice in this organization.

    Cons

    paranoid micromanaging unethical management unethical use of colleagues for workplace bullying unethical use of fake anonymous surveys to gauge satisfaction with salary or work culture constant monitoring of your happiness to gauge whether you will leave the company or stay false accusations and your reputation being damaged by colleagues and managers patronizing compliments that lacked sincerity Huge turnover all the time. Fake smiles all around and lack of sincerity is a definite turnoff. inability to use your knowledge in productive way.

    Advice to Management

    Terminate employees if you don't feel they are a fit , don't use workplace bullying .

    None - what a waste of time it was working for this company. I only realize it after leaving that I wasted a lot of energy there.

    Cons

    Many!!! No direction, poor management, poor relationships, no vision, no team work, no excitement around any thing.

    Pros

    The good things about this company are the vending machine items (25 cent per soda and bubble gum)

    Cons

    The company has no culture except for the sales team who believe they own the company. Managers have no idea how to acquire, develop and manage the team members, these managers became managers because people have left or quit the company. HR is pretty bad, I agree with other comments. Anyone applying for this company should have nothing else on the table to accept and work at IL. Also huge turn over. :)

    Advice to Management

    It won't matter what I say but I will put it this way after you hit your head against the wall for 100 times, will you continue?

    Pros

    Some good benefits. Can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    It is a production shop and no more. A positive culture is non-existent. The employees hate working there but will not speak out for fear of retribution. The employees have to watch out for each other, as they will knife you in the back. The business model is exclusively tied to a short release model. It is specifically geared to produce revenue without updating any of the code. If you are an indian or Pakistani, you might be ok.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs a yearlong crash course in managing people. I can't enumerate the mistakes in this small forum. Start treating people with respect, it just might help them endure a bit longer.
