    I worked at Intralinks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility, vacation, and great comp.

    Cons

    Company is putting all their eggs in one basket by focusing only on their enterprise business. Other offerings are not receiving the proper amount of attention and customers are starting to feel the pain. Company direction changes yearly to quickly and easily appease investors, and sales and other departments are not properly aligned to keep up with new offerings. In recent years senior management from the outside came in without understanding the business or asking others internally what the implications would be and implemented multiple new systems that negatively affected the sales team and customers. Most of these purchases or contracts are now being canceled, but it can take several years for them to admit they made a mistake on a system everyone acknowledges doesn't work at all/ hinders business.

    Advice to Management

    See above. Try to do a better job retaining talent.

    I worked at Intralinks full-time

    Pros

    Decent training, great office, work/life balance, open-door policy with execs
    Great if you are selling their financial products
    Walk on water if you sell (but this means you're in financial vertical)
    Very good marketing/branding team
    You'll always have someone to spot you in the gym

    Cons

    Classic example of the "old boys club"
    If you're not in the financial vertical you won't make $$$
    Not enough room in the office for everyone's ego
    Management can't even explain their commission plan
    By the end of training, the class (full of well educated people) still could not distinguish products

    Advice to Management

    Don't kid yourself, it's a file sync & share

    I worked at Intralinks (More than a year)

    Pros

    Maintains perception despite being flawed

    Cons

    There is NO opportunity despite what they'll promise
    Product use cases are narrow and overpriced
    Idea of marketing is to throw top dollar cocktail parties and not traditional BtoB
    Field roles are not supported or valued
    There are a high volume of expensive figureheads collecting checks
    Corporate was originally in NYC, the staff there is snobbish and rude
    Old school practices, everyone is a middle aged white man unless in development
    Organization has the practices of a Fortune 500, covered in red tape
    Sales and marketing leadership is inept, lacking the interpersonal skills and finesse, they do not lead, they dictate and delegate
    Environment is toxic and unethical
    Exit strategy is apparent
    HR is not present

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders like Ron and less like those in sales and marketing
    Open your ears as those who speak often have something of value to say
    Respect your staff, karma does exist and hierarchy lives only in your head
