    I worked at Intralinks as a contractor

    Pros

    Good pay; flexible hours; convenient location.

    Cons

    If you liked Novell, you'll like Intralinks. Cadre of former Novell who work together and others who cultivate those connections. Who you know is important. Many good people squeezed out or leave . Weak HR leadership part of the problem. Unclear product and sales strategy. Now owned by Synchronoss, these problems may improve.

    Advice to Management

    Under new management by Synchronoss, the company may improve. Some house cleaning is necessary; evaluate the talents and performance of people so that the truly capable people rise. Figure out your products and sales strategy; ask the tough questions and be open to hearing new responses.

    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 worked at Intralinks as a contractor

    Pros

    General culture was fun, people themselves were great to work with. The work provided was interesting, and facilities worked hard to make sure everyone was happy.

    Cons

    Management is a mess. Goals aren't clear. Too much work given to development teams. Deadlines were rarely met, and different teams were always fighting with one another. Some employees were misplaced in their roles.

    Advice to Management

    A clearer sense of direction would be nice. Working together with other teams to find solutions instead of pointing fingers and blame.

    Pros

    Some really good and bright people at the company

    Working on important capabilities and applications for customers

    Strong relationships with targeted customers in financial industries

    Cons

    The company has not been able to deliver to customers a long term value add approach for solving their problems and needs. Now it seems that the Intralinks business strategy is being driven by customer integration projects that may come up.

    However, as the cloud solutions built on top of AWS, Azure and others become more accepted, Intralinks will need to figure out how they will deliver value in that world! It is not at all clear that this is understood and being acted on.

    There has been a lot of turn over with senior and executive management so be aware there is a new team running the operations. That can be good, or it can be confusing.

    Advice to Management

    Software value for customers is a tough business.

    Intralinks management needs be clear to the teams at Intralinks and clear to customers what Intralinks wants to be known for. What is the area of excellence and value for customers that Intralinks stands for. Once that is known, then really focus on delivering that.

    Right now the teams working at Intralinks see the company focusing on whatever new "shinny" opportunities might come up.

    I worked at Intralinks full-time

    Pros

    Good amount of information shared by executive leadership team. Generally have a good idea of direction company will be heading in.

    Cons

    There is a good deal of animosity between organizations. Large amount of turnover, much of the loss is driven by management chaos.

    Advice to Management

    Drive towards achievement of goals needs to be tempered with a drive towards inter organizational cooperation. There is a significant divide between executive level and their teams, no sense of trust, this needs to be corrected.
