    I worked at Intralinks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Early 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.

    Cons

    New 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Intralinks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Management needs to connect with the employees more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Intralinks

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    It 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?

    I have been working at Intralinks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    people: great people who are excellent at what they do
    office culture: a place to make friends, fun activities but could be more
    work life balance: global organisation does not provide standard 9-5 but offers flexible working arrangements
    perks: basic benefits, could do with more perks
    career: opportunities for promotion, opportunity to relocate

    Cons

    growing business proofs to be a challenging environment lacking efficient systems and processes, a lot of manual work which is more and more eliminated by new systems
    global organisation has a lot of silos (functional/regional)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more open and honest communication, communicate negative outcomes
    recognising people outside of US
    recognising differences outside of US
