    Pros

    Decent training, great office, work/life balance, open-door policy with execs Great if you are selling their financial products Walk on water if you sell (but this means you're in financial vertical) Very good marketing/branding team You'll always have someone to spot you in the gym

    Cons

    Classic example of the "old boys club" If you're not in the financial vertical you won't make $$$ Not enough room in the office for everyone's ego Management can't even explain their commission plan By the end of training, the class (full of well educated people) still could not distinguish products

    Advice to Management

    Don't kid yourself, it's a file sync & share

    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

    Pros

    The current leadership team has put significant effort into employee attraction and retention with numerous recognition programs as well as the development of defined (but not rigid) career paths to provide individuals with the ability to grow within the company. There is a strong work ethic across departments and a tight knit culture that makes going to work everyday a rewarding and positive experience. Everyone is truly working together to build towards the next stage of the company's growth and it is fun to be a part of it.

    Cons

    The company can no longer be considered a small, "mature startup", but is not quite as developed as many large corporations. This means certain internal processes are still works in progress and can be frustrating to navigate for the time being. This is a small challenge in an otherwise great organization and also represents an opportunity for experienced workers to make tangible improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to emphasize employee retention and growth, and offer compensation commensurate with the value that people bring to the organization. Please err on the side of the employee whenever possible, especially when presented with somewhat gray situations that could be argued in either direction - it makes a huge difference to people's satisfaction and, in turn, motivation levels.

    Pros

    Recognized as the leading platform for strategic transactions by corporate development teams, investment banks and law firms. Solid vision/product road map.

    Cons

    Awareness within the market beyond our core product lines has been a challenge however this has been addressed through the hiring of an impressive marketing team from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Execution of vision and product road map is key.

    Pros

    Intralinks is a great company with a really supportive leadership team. They continuously invest in their people and there is a great opportunity for advancement within the sales organization.

    Cons

    The sales operations team started to really over engineer the compensation plan. AE's should not need an excel spreadsheet with macros to figure out what they are going to be paid.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overcomplicate the compensation and take care of your top performers.
