    I have been working at Intralinks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is genuinely focused on growing the enterprise business Great benefits and pay, especially for those looking to start a sales career Lots of great veterans in management and the field to learn from The company is continually refining how it goes to market and the best way to get to the top Management is excellent, constantly looking to help you grow as a profssional

    Cons

    Miscommunication between field reps and management. Unrealistic expectations of how long it takes to mature and close business for enterprise Lopsided pay for inside sales depending on what product line you are on

    Advice to Management

    Must maintain realistic timeline for closing large deals Needs to offer realistic vision of how the company plans to grow Improve communication between product lines to fully leverage the Intralinks name.

    Pros

    Previously many, but culture has sadly changed

    Cons

    - remuneration significantly below industry peers - too many layers of management, leading to micro-management and relentless focus on KPI's - lack of support and involvement of management - inflexible decision making - majority of senior sales team have left in quick succession this year leaving few remaining to learn from - considerable uncertainty in the leadership team with numerous departures at the senior level Intralinks was once a fun, innovative tech company to work with bright, talented employees. Particularly over the past 12 months this has changed to become highly political, inflexible and a noticeable change in management for the worse. As a result this has led to an exodus that will likely continue. The tech industry is booming at the moment, and there exist far better options in the market both for personal development and compensation

    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

    I worked at Intralinks full-time

    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
