    Great place for an intern

    Former Employee - At Professional Services in Purchase, NY

    I worked at Timelink as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It was an interesting experience that has exposed me to the world of IT, and I quite enjoyed working as an intern (unpaid). Everybody was very friendly and helpful.
    There was a fair amount of good training that prepared me to use their software.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt like a ghost, as I was desperately looking for things to do (especially when my supervisor was working from home).

    Pros

    Awesome group of smart people, great office space, strong middle management, ability to wear many hats and exposure to large clients

    Cons

    Employee retainment, substandard upper management, lack of incentives, product (software and hardware) degression

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was done recently.. clean house, put a new plan in place and start over. Core company has a ton of potential, was an amazing place to work in 2006 - 2011.

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

    Pros

    Good for beginning your Analyst careers, great potential in individual employees, helpful colleagues

    Cons

    Product cannot backup claims, very buggy, regressions in every release, not enough investment made for hiring US developers, too much investment made in offshore development team, does not have a working mobile phone app for the product, archaic user interface in product, CEO has too much say on product development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to invest in US developers so that fixing issues have a faster turn around time; listen to Professional Services to understand what way the product should go; listen to Support to understand what features need to be improved; invest in your employees

    I worked at Timelink full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Access to executives, travel, exposure to many aspects of the software industry, smart co-workers

    Cons

    Low salaries, fighting between departments and executives, gossip, slow to change current processes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend the money to retain key employees, clean house with under-performing staff, get an HR department and put more emphasis on work-life balance.

    I worked at Timelink full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Terrific functionality in product. Very smart and caring management. Small company so it's easy to make a difference and to be heard. Good pay and technology.

    Cons

    Company is going a million miles and hour in too many directions. Priorities change on a dime. Most coworkers are excellent but to be honest some dead wood needs to be cleared out. I really really hated to leave but in the end felt like I was not able to be effective in current structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for the company to grow up. Slow down, put some standards and processes in place. Set a clear vision and execute on it. Focus on the boring aspects of the business - documentation, training, planning, code quality.

    I worked at Timelink full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice building in a nice industrial park with lots of trees.

    Cons

    No direction from management. Lots of new folks who work long hours without knowing why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Something is dreadfully wrong with your recruiting process. Given the insane amount of interviews that are conducted before one is hired, you would think all the pieces fit perfectly. They don't. The culture is terrible, management is poor nobody is steering the ship.

    I worked at Timelink

    Pros

    Lots of travel if you are in the right group, decent salaries in the revenue generating positions, good place to learn HR/TL

    Cons

    Sink or swim type atmosphere can be difficult for some people to deal with, limited advancement opportunities, reluctance to fire underperforming staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more effort into attracting and retaining high quality development candidates, don't hesitate to cut dead weight when it's necessary, offer more advancement opportunities in the software side of the business
