Good experience of a bad company.

UI Designer (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

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

ProsThe people on my team are very smart, and good people. You have a lot of different projects to work on, and a big variety of mediums. There used to be a better work/life home balance, but it's starting to fade away. You'll take away a lot of examples of how not to do business.

ConsThe CEO demands no presence, and he is a huge micro-manager who has to approve of every penny spent. The Project Managers hired here are Technical PMs, not actual Project Managers - if you are lead designer on the project, be prepared to have a lot of miscommunication internally. Projects typically go over deadline and over-budget due to promises from sales of "short and cheap" which cannot be met with the current process. Your voice will not be heard, and the healthcare is literally the bottom of the barrel.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you hire some actual Project Managers, or a third-party tool to help the communication within the team, you won't be losing money on potential clients or missed opportunities. If you listen to your employees suggestions, instead of ignoring because you know it all, you might have a better relationship with your employees and make them feel valued rather than another pathway to get you money.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Openness, Opportunity for growth and FUN - That's iLink

Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

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

ProsAt 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.

ConsI'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 ;-)

Advice to Senior ManagementStay Hungry. Stay Foolish ; Let's grow BIGGER !

Great Freedom, Ethics & Culture

Developer (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

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

ProsThe 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
