    Pros

    CEO gives the company a great direction. The strategy for the company is well thought through. The senior management is all extremely intelligent, capable people. The product portfolio we have is successful and we always strive to improve it further. The company is growing and creating new roles for internal as well as external candidates. It is an exciting place to work for.

    Cons

    Growing organisation that is going from start up mentality to a process driven organisation. It is a lot of trial and error at the moment.

    Pros

    It's nice to say you work for a publicly traded company. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    The products aren't that impressive. Intralinks is trying to spin use-cases as new products when they aren't. I suggest looking elsewhere like Box or Dropbox for Cloud based storage. Customers also commented that they didn't appreciate sales leadership because of their eliteist attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to bring in new sales leadership.

    Pros

    Great pay- above average for senior staff, friendly family team culture, modern office environments, hard working people. Training is done in New York. High growth company.

    Cons

    Very early stages in having a 24 hour support model for clients. The help desk does not support French, Spanish, German or Italian languages. Many customer complaints. High staff turnover, very American work ethic where staff are expected to check their phones every weekend and do some work on a weekend if needed so no real opportunity to switch off. Work life balance is non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the people to keep them.

    Celebrate all the success more often!

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Intralinks is its PEOPLE! They are the biggest asset of this company - I have never worked with so many intelligent, fun and yet humble people who want to help Intralinks grow. If you have common sense and are driven by challenging work and opportunity to impact change - this is a place for you.

    Cons

    One of the challenges is to create a unified global culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to creating a true Intralinks brand and a family of engaged employees and contractors that feel like they are part of the company too.

    Pros

    Vending machine discounts were pretty good , some people were cool and that's about it!

    Cons

    Felt like I went back in time 90's or 80's, the ERP system was a dinosaur and the excel models were clunky and time consuming (copy/paste from one to another every week), not enough time to analysis any type of data. Meetings with leadership were painful . My grand-mom always said "penny wise dollar foolish".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your financial systems and improve the culture of the company. as my manager who was used to working there for years and never changed or will change, people like that are the cancer of any company.

    I have been working at Intralinks full-time

    Pros

    - Competitive pay, flexible schedules and benefits
    - friendly co-workers
    - Leadership Team is trying hard

    Cons

    There were some good software developer and managers who really cared about the company and the product they were building, left the company. There are still some very enthusiastic Software developers working hard most of the time without any recognition. These are the guys produce most of the work without any recognition and career growth.

    Managers are not concerned about the actual work or the product, they just want to speak few line (which they learn from hard working developers) in front of the management to pretend that they know everything. Managers are just like task masters, they do not want to fix the really issues or architecture or fix the bigger problem. They Will not look anything if its not coming from upper management no matter how bad the function/feature is for end user.

    No matter how much you work hard here recognition/awards are reserved for YES SIR kind of dumb guys. Even if you do nothing...know nothing....you are dumbest in the group still you can get plenty of awards because you say YES SIR to you manager. It wouldn't be fair to expect positive attitude and team work in this culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - *Respect your hardworking employees*
    - Improve the culture and positive attitude
    - Respect the work and value to the product not the YES SIR attitude
