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

    Pros

    I joined the team fresh out of college as an intern having little to no experience with my main focus on web design and development. Through Links, I was able to grow and learn the necessary skillsets to be hired as a full time web developer. The skillsets I acquired through Links are the sole reason I was able to land my current job as a Design Technologist. Without them I don't know where I would be!

    Links Technology treats and respects each and every one of their employees like family.

    The employees I worked with were fun and beyond amazing as they were always willing to help when needed. Each one is very knowledgeable in their respective fields.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of was the commute from Chicago to Schaumburg, however I can only blame myself for choosing to live in Chicago. Management was more than accommodating and flexible, letting me adjust my work hours to beat traffic as well as letting me work from home on Fridays. Cannot thank them enough for this as it did make a big difference!

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    A lot of great people to work with. For the most part, family comes first. Get a lot of free lunches and an abundance of office snacks.

    Cons

    Very low salaries for work done. No annual reviews unless you beg for it and raises are few and far between. Benefits stink. Very much "good ole boy" mentality. Select few receive lots of perks that are not offered to all employees. If you like Trump, you'll love the owner of this company; they share most of the same qualities. Management boasts on screwing the client.

    Advice to Management

    A raise in salary and average+ benefits mean a lot more to employees than free lunches.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    I have worked here for almost 5 years and have been treated like family. Management is very understanding of your family concerns and needs when they arise.
    This company also is always looking for the new and up and coming products and services in the market which makes working here very interesting.

    Cons

    The only thing that comes to mind is a change in the vacation policy. Possibly to two weeks after the first year of employment.

    Advice to Management

    See above. - Vacation policy
