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

    Pros

    Been part of iLink for about 8 years now, and wouldn't be here if I did not think it was worth investing my time into iLink. This has grown from a small to mid size business within a short span, and has been featured in Inc 5000 list consecutively in 4 years. Competence is primarily focused on Microsoft technologies and continues to have a great run with Microsoft as a partner. Won the Microsoft partner of the year award for excellence in technology and solutions on multiple occasions. I've had a lot of learning experiences with iLink - joined here as a Technical Program Manager and had the opportunity to expand my career both technically and managerially. Lots of opportunities to work on cutting edge technologies that you get only in few other places. Customers are of paramount importance, as they should be. I've learnt some good things in all aspects during my tenure so far here.
    This is a really good place to work if you are willing to learn and work on cutting edge stuff. Anyone who has the initiative and is ready to grab an opportunity HAS that opportunity. If you are willing to go that extra mile in what you do, you will see plenty of growth here.

    Cons

    iLink has grown out of being a small business into a mid size firm, and with that also comes some growing pains. Management has worked hard to place appropriate processes and practices in place - they are CMMi certified, and continue to refine them to account for these growing pains. Having said that, there is a lot to learn on a daily basis purely because of the the opportunities this presents.

    I have been working at iLink-Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have had really good experience working with iLink. The company provides excellent opportunities to learn and grow both in technology and management areas. Though it is now a mid-size company, the culture is very entrepreneurial and flat. The management is very keen on grooming leaders and supportive in providing growth opportunities to employees based on employees interests and professional goals. All in all it is an awesome company to be part of

    Cons

    Sometimes the employees get stretched in multiple projects/directions which could impact productivity/create stress, but I realize the management is trying to minimize such situations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, maintain the entrepreneurial environment and flat culture

    Pros

    At an outset, its a great place to work

    Opportunities : There are more technical opportunities. Employee get to work at multiple technological streams. There is a always a chance for you to get your hands on a cutting edge technology.

    Support : There is a good rapport between the employees and senior management always support the developer's decision. There is constant encouragement and appreciation. You wish to do more yourself.

    Activities : It's a fun environ. Team outings, birthday celebrations, festival celebrations are all part of it. Workplace is open without much borders between the senior management and developers. Communication is easy this way.

    Appraisal : I'm satisfied with what I got. Scale justifies the performance.

    Cons

    I've been here for few years. That's pretty much nothing I can think of for now. But will surely update if any in the future ;-)

    I have been working at iLink-Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best reasons i can say working with company are its got the most friendly environment and we all learn many things in the work culture implemented there.I can also say the doors are always open for growth opportunities within the organisation.

    Work is very challenging, complex programs and projects, and the pace is very fast. Very diverse work environment. There is international contact even for positions that are domestic in nature. Provides opportunity to work with and learn from colleagues in other regions.

    Great benefits. One tough situation is that performance is not only measured against objectives, but against your colleagues. At yearly review time, it creates a bit of a tense environment, but it's manageable. Wrt performance objectives, "self-management" is very important for each employee.

    Lots of virtual team work with regular progress reviews. A lot of interdependence with other groups so cross group collaboration is a must.

    Cons

    There are constant re-organizations so that could be distracting. But at many cases, I see my colleageus take this a Challenge

They give you enough freedom to take decision s and respect opinions without bureaucracy.Has very good potential , right from a developer to a Manager to pave his career path.A culture which is nurtured under trust and the management will work through hand in hand with Employees.

    Open door culture with access all the way to top mgmt and CEO,Extremely flexible work culture ,Very young and energetic workforce.

    Continues to be innovative, Creating never ending opportunities to make your hand dirty in every cutting edge technologies of IT

    Cons

    This is not essentially a Con , but a challenge - Too many crazy activities may drive away the focus, but you get a lot of exposure of-course.
    Its upto the individual to prioritise and weave through the deliveries SMART.
