    Pros

    Links Technology has a great team of people that are always willing to work together with each other. We are always on the cutting edge of technology, which keeps me current with all the technologies, including the cloud based ones. Through the support of our team members we can combine our energies to create solutions you would not be able to create on your own. Having this cohesive team within Link Technology allows you take what you may already know and expand it to the next level.

    Cons

    None at this time. I enjoy working with everyone at Links Technology.

    Advice to Management

    We have a leadership team that understands you are not a robot and ensures family time is important. While we do work a lot here it is because we care about the customers and enjoy being on the cutting edge of new technologies. Leadership ensures that we are always able to work with the new, ever emerging, technologies. I appreciate that and continue to enjoy the personal growth I have gained from this.

    I have been working at Links Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The “Links” experience is over and beyond any imaginable expectations. The work environment is very professional while being balanced with a family atmosphere and flexibility of home and work schedules. The Links Management Team allows you to grow as a professional and as a person, and it’s amazing how much work can get done when you are working with state-of-the-art equipment and software.

    Cons

    Links Technology is a workplace that makes Careers, not just jobs! If you are looking for a place of employment to collect “JUST” a pay check, Links is not the place for you. Links Technology is a company of long-term commitments.

    I have been working at Links Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been at Links Technology for almost 10 years and I can tell you Links is one huge family. They care about each and every one of their employees. I work remotely now but when I was in the office the work environment is excellent. I could not imagine working anywhere else. If you ever get the chance to join the Links family, I highly recommend it.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say about Links. If you every get the chance to work there you will see why.

    "Current help desk support engineer."

    Pros

    I would liken working at Links Technology to working with family. Everyone you work with up to the owner is very thoughtful, helpful, and wants to see you develop as an employee as much as the development of businesses they support.

    If you have passion for all things IT, then this is the job for you. There is always something to do and new things to learn. It just requires the desire to want to get better as an administator.

    Cons

    This is not a typical 9-5 job, as clients will contact at all hours of the day. There is an expectaction that some issues be responded to, which can cause some challenges with personal and family time. This leads to only some of the more dedicated employees to be the only ones responding.

    Given the size of the help desk support team, there doesn't seem like much room to move up in the company. There isn't any defined promotion standard.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend an on-call support schedule with an overseeing advanced IT tech to facilitate after hours support and to get every tech involved.

    It would also be great if there was defined tiers for support. This might be good for a promotion structure and help with company growth.

    It is so great to see this feedback. Your advice regarding employment of a tiered support structure and all a scheduled on-call rotation is much appreciated, and is something that will surely be ... More

    Pros

    Links provides a very pleasant work environment. Most employees are young and anxious to learn new things and share ideas. You get to use all kinds of cool IT tools. All employees are strongly encouraged to become certified in various skills - and they pay for the testing and provide the time and the study materials to get there. Monthly lunch and learn meetings for new ideas or the sharing of project ideas are held. All suggestions are considered. This is the nicest company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    There are no formal annual reviews. Raises have to be requested, and you need to make a strong case. There is no formality - that is both good and bad. Would love a "career track" path.

    I have been working at Links Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Links is a family run company where you feel like you are part of a team. Wonderful work-life balance! I have been abundantly awarded for my successes. I have been with Links for 14 years AND COUNTING!

    Cons

    It's a smaller company, so we don't have any in-house training from which to benefit; however, I have personally benefited from several off-site seminars and courses, and Links has fully supported these efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you continued to recognize the small wins along the way. It really means more than you know.

    I worked at Links Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people there are fun to work with and the technology that they use is current. There are some other perks like having snacks and free food in the kitchen.

    Cons

    The company hires people with little to no experience and pays poorly. They rely on just one individual. Without adequate compensation they will not keep good employees.

    Advice to Management

    To keep good employees you should compensate what the current salary is in the area of their expertise. Also invest in the education of your employees.
