    Started better than it ended!

    Director (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsEarly on in my IntraLinks career, I knew that this was a start up with a mom and pop lifestyle, but they also had lofty dreams and goals that I admired. Both the New York and Boston locations had at that time a culture that made you feel good about working there. Damico, Pleasner and Tracey were the big NY 3 followed up by a savvy Boston technology executive. Although they had huge mountains to climb and commitments to keep, they made it work and kept moral as high as possible. Never did I feel like just a worker, another cog in the machine. I felt trusted and valued and was hired based on my skillset and my past record of delivering solid outcomes. This team also trusted their teams to deliver what was needed, when it was needed! The little things like discounted vending were small tokens that went a long way.

    ConsNew York lacked space, refinement and true corporate appeal. Once the lower Manhattan office combined with Mid-town, the pain of lack of space and dedication of expansion was felt. The disconnect that new leadership based in Boston had with the New York teams was very evident. You felt no love. We were the ugly step children while Boston lead the glamorous life! The leadership was all changed to Ron’s personal A-Team. While I can respect their abilities, they did nothing to win over the confidence of the employees. I felt like there were two companies that operated. The have and the have not’s. My role gave me financial insight as well as global visibility. The leadership had a new agenda… and only a few would fit in their plans.

    The hours can be long and the demands great with no compensation or other benefits given.

    New York conditions were horrible.

    Lack of culture and connection.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement will always do what benefits themselves. Intralinks had/has some very good people. They need to invest better in them.

    So far, so good

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Boston, MA (US)

    ProsI joined Intralinks recently and the journey has been very good so far. The engineering team has got some amazing talents and we develop some amazing products. Friendly and flexible environment to work. The company values the employees. Compensation and the policies are very good. Developers have the freedom to explore new technologies.

    ConsManagement needs to connect with the employees more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in fresh minds into the Product Management team so that they can contribute new ideas and make the products better.

    It was great, until they starting firing everyone

    Client Services Project Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsFriendly and intelligent co-workers, Great training and fair compensation are some of the great benefits of this company. Vacation policy was fair as well.

    ConsHigh turnover, people that you like today are gone tomorrow
    Management is generally disconnected with day to day affairs
    It is always in a state of "rebuilding" and never "thriving"

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Big potential zero execution

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsThe good things about this company are the vending machine items (25 cent per soda and bubble gum)

    ConsThe company has no culture except for the sales team who believe they own the company. Managers have no idea how to acquire, develop and manage the team members, these managers became managers because people have left or quit the company. HR is pretty bad, I agree with other comments. Anyone applying for this company should have nothing else on the table to accept and work at IL. Also huge turn over. :)

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt won't matter what I say but I will put it this way after you hit your head against the wall for 100 times, will you continue?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
