    I worked at Intralinks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -good base salary
    -iphone, laptop, wi-fi hotspot
    -401k
    -work from home if in a good territory

    Cons

    -management was poor with big egos
    -i had 3 management changes within 6 months
    -micromanaged
    -sales training is complicated, convoluted, confusing, highly time-consuming, and ineffective. however, it MUST be applied to each sale
    -many sales reps benefit from being in a good territory and rarely close new business but are untouchable. for example, one girl was caught doing some very wild partying during an all-hands sales meeting but kept her job when anyone else would be fired. you'll see and hear about the inconsistencies within 6 months because there are lots of loose lips
    -quarterly QBRs which are big time wasters. "what are you going to do close sales and meet your quota?" prepare a 45 minute presentation then sales training that is typically useless and just a way to analyze your sales skills
    -untouchable managers who do little to help, have big egos, and make things more difficult rather than help close deals

    I have been working at Intralinks full-time

    Pros

    Incredible product(s), both in the M&A and Enterprise businesses. Great people at the non-managerial levels. Clients love us.

    Cons

    No clear sales or marketing strategy. They cant figure what message they want to share with what market. Too much reliance on a pod system for lead gen and qualifying--and it doesn't work.

    Advice to Management

    This acquisition smells funny and has a lot of people wondering why Intralinks went down this road. Good people won't have much patience for whatever the new org structure looks like.

    Pros

    Work-life balance was OK, but there was pressure on those who worked from home. Compensation was competitive, but benefits were expensive. There is potential - but no execution

    Cons

    The company didn't deliver on product expectations, all the time was spent building one-off features for single customers without looking at the bigger picture. Completely sales-driven development cycle. The politics were incredible with VPs required to make any decision. Teams were not empowered and were too large to accomplish anything. Internal culture was full of politics and gossip. No fun

    Advice to Management

    Empower your managers and directors. You have smart people, but no one is willing to step up for fear of consequences. Rethink the GTM strategy and focus on your core strength.

    I have been working at Intralinks full-time

    Pros

    I cannot praise my departmental colleagues enough: over the course of the past year, we've bonded across offices and I feel like we're a true "team." Our departmental senior management strives to move us forward as a group, and I trust that I can lean on my closest colleagues for support and encouragement on a day-to-day basis.

    Cons

    In the Waltham office especially, each department (sales, marketing, dev, etc) are siloed by long corridors and walls, making interaction between teams difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Consider implementing a company-wide WFH policy. Commutes are increasing dramatically, and a change in our rides to and from work would likely significantly improve morale.

    I worked at Intralinks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very strong credentials in financial services, and the core business is thriving in an active M&A market. Very smart domain expertise on that side of the business, which fosters customer loyalty.

    Management is attempting to broaden the customer base with a more general purpose product, and while this is an uphill struggle it does present some interesting challenges and opportunities.

    The CEO/CFO are a great team. The shift to managing margin over growth makes sense, but has consequences for employees.

    Cons

    Significant management changes have resulted in the usual problems of lack of consistency and focus. Management churn is a real issue. New management is a mixed bag.

    As others have noted, engineering hasn't delivered on new capabilities and functionality to keep pace with market demands, and this has completely eroded any competitive advantage Intralinks may once have enjoyed. Consequently, employee moral has sagged. Management expectations aren't yet aligned with market realities.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge that Intralinks' future is in the core financial markets it knows well. Focus there.
