    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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?

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    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.

    I worked at Intralinks

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    decent Salary,kind colleagues, big office

    Cons

    Backstabbing culture, Impossible deadlines, manager,prolong Initial contract from 2x months to until 6 !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send someone competent to the European office in Amsterdam!

    @ Also I'd like to warn possible new candidates for this role of the following:

    - Watch out when providing your references , mine our now ruined! because of the "reference check agency" that took care of my background check ! (these people are very unprofessional)

    - A 2x months initial contract is just to short ! especially if you need to perform the job in different languages !

    -A lot of empty promisses in regards to career advancement.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Pros

    I could work from home as much as I wanted and was arguably overpaid for the role I was in.

    Cons

    There was a lot of attrition whilst working there in all the departments, so it was difficult getting guidance as most people were new. I was remotely managed, given little work, but still asked to punch time cards. In my team directly, there were some talented people, but they were unmotivated due to the shouting and antagonistic culture of the more tenured, but less capable, senior staffers. It was probably the least professional place I've ever worked and it was not unusual to get harassed via email or on team calls, for no other reason than colleagues trying to demonstrate their authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the company is made up of more than just a sales team. Don't waste time trying to appear like a mature company with development plans for employees if none of the management will actually participate in them. Try to maintain decent, qualified staff and remove the employees that are actually obstructing productivity.
