    I have been working at Intralinks full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    People are great, Work pressure is less, Great 9-5 job if you are average smart. Product development managers lack leadership skills especially motivating and helping younger professionals manage and grow their career. They are very good task masters, for the lack of better words. Work for few years and move on. My two cents.

    Cons

    Limited career growth, Lack of clear management vision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clear product vision, run the company as product engineering company not as a utility company

    I worked at Intralinks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great employees around the globe, Marketing and Sales are rebuilding under good leadership, Finance is rebuilding under good leadership, Service is very good and consistent.

    Cons

    Turnover has handicapped the organization at all levels and in all offices. The company needs to be more aggressive with stock rewards to the employees, another round of high executive stock awards might stall growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the stock with employees (too much in executive compensation), stabilize the turnover, and get closer to the key customers at all levels.

    I worked at Intralinks

    Pros

    Was a great company with a can do attitude

    Cons

    New Senior Management with CPO title killed the company's innovation. Hired a tyrant, no one wants to work there anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect.

    Pros

    Great opportunities ahead for this company. The software dev team has a smart & energized group of people. They are heading in the right direction. Didn't work out for me personally for some reasons, but I would recommend getting onboard.

    Cons

    There's a lot to do. Many opportunities means lots of projects. It's a good thing but it can be challenging.

    Bringing innovative solutions to solve knowledge worker problems while integrating new models (Agile methodology) to deliver customer value.

    Realistic that we have tremendous amount of work ahead to continuously innovate and exceed the expectations of customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remarkable job in forming a cohesive unit to layout a framework (Customers, Employees, and Shareholders) for bottom-up and top-down input that everyone can corral around team-shared responsibilities.

    I worked at Intralinks full-time

    Pros

    Interesting products and technology.
    Strong potential for sales growth in solid enterprise space.
    A few good persons scattered here and there in the organization.
    Excellent pay.
    CEO seems like a good person but hasn't done enough to make a difference.

    Cons

    Crushing workload.
    Slave driving management.
    Highly political environment - infighting, backstabbing, sycophants.
    Group think - there is only one right way to solve the problem. Alternative approaches are belittled.
    Promotions given to those who think the same way managers do.
    If you are not actively throwing someone else under the bus, then someone is throwing you under the bus. Highly adversarial atmosphere.
    Unprofessional conduct by certain senior managers.
    Command and control approach to management. Little delegation of decision-making.
    Collaboration at the team level is not encouraged or supported. Individuals do collaborate, but have to seek them out. Most employees don't care about the problems you need to solve unless you show them what is in it for them and how it will make them look good.
    Very poor communication internally. The attitude seems to be that employees don't need to know why, just that they have to do their job and shut up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Still have a chance to improve the culture, but time is running out.

    Pros

    They over pay employees. This truly is the only pro working for this company. So if you are looking for short term with big money; this is your place.

    Cons

    The company is consistly change management to better align goals and strategy, however, they keep running around in circles. Working for this company reminds me of role-play as a child. Management is pretending like it knows who to hire, what strategy to implement and aligning company goals with individual contribution from employees. The wrong people are at the top of the chain and don't want to let anyone in and the people with ideas, experience and strategy are at the bottom. Upper management is very threaten by the intelligence of the employees, however, they look for the best and expect the best. When you get in you have to act dumb and be a robot to attain tenure. It's very counter-productive. If there's even a hint of intelligence that radiates from you--in the words of Donald Trump-- YOU'RE FIRED.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being intimidated by the intelligent people you hire. For example, someone that has worked at a Fortune 500 company shouldn't be fired for no reason other than their manager being threatened. If you hire the right people at the top, they should want to empower their team to grow within the company; not keep them stagnant. Please do something about morale, but I highly think you really don't care, because it shows. Human Resources is a joke and you should really be careful, because I foresee lots of wrongful termination lawsuits coming your way.
