    I have been working at Intralinks full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Intralinks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Early on in my IntraLinks career, I knew that this was a start up with a mom and pop lifestyle, but they also had lofty dreams and goals that I admired. Both the New York and Boston locations had at that time a culture that made you feel good about working there. Damico, Pleasner and Tracey were the big NY 3 followed up by a savvy Boston technology executive. Although they had huge mountains to climb and commitments to keep, they made it work and kept moral as high as possible. Never did I feel like just a worker, another cog in the machine. I felt trusted and valued and was hired based on my skillset and my past record of delivering solid outcomes. This team also trusted their teams to deliver what was needed, when it was needed! The little things like discounted vending were small tokens that went a long way.

    Cons

    New York lacked space, refinement and true corporate appeal. Once the lower Manhattan office combined with Mid-town, the pain of lack of space and dedication of expansion was felt. The disconnect that new leadership based in Boston had with the New York teams was very evident. You felt no love. We were the ugly step children while Boston lead the glamorous life! The leadership was all changed to Ron’s personal A-Team. While I can respect their abilities, they did nothing to win over the confidence of the employees. I felt like there were two companies that operated. The have and the have not’s. My role gave me financial insight as well as global visibility. The leadership had a new agenda… and only a few would fit in their plans.

    The hours can be long and the demands great with no compensation or other benefits given.

    New York conditions were horrible.

    Lack of culture and connection.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management will always do what benefits themselves. Intralinks had/has some very good people. They need to invest better in them.

    Pros

    I joined Intralinks recently and the journey has been very good so far. The engineering team has got some amazing talents and we develop some amazing products. Friendly and flexible environment to work. The company values the employees. Compensation and the policies are very good. Developers have the freedom to explore new technologies.

    Cons

    Management needs to connect with the employees more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in fresh minds into the Product Management team so that they can contribute new ideas and make the products better.

    It is always in a state of "rebuilding" and never "thriving"

    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

    The many pros that I enjoy:

    The pay and benefits are great
    Ability to work from home or office
    Large expense account
    New management which is leading to positive change

    Cons

    They just started creating a career plan for junior reps.
    Back office has its problems
    High turnover
    New product challenges in a very crowded space that could cannibalize existing business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful not to over promise on new products, need to stay true to you core tools.
