    Pros

    Product that does what our customer want, right product, right time

    Cons

    You have to thrive in a startup mentality, everything is not 100% how every the company is full of opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall keep doing what you doing, pay some attention to some of the people that have been with you for sometime, it will save you making the same errors as the past management

    Former Employee - Senior UNIX Administrator  in  London, England

    I worked at Intralinks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I could work from home as much as I wanted and was arguably overpaid for the role I was in.

    Cons

    There was a lot of attrition whilst working there in all the departments, so it was difficult getting guidance as most people were new. I was remotely managed, given little work, but still asked to punch time cards. In my team directly, there were some talented people, but they were unmotivated due to the shouting and antagonistic culture of the more tenured, but less capable, senior staffers. It was probably the least professional place I've ever worked and it was not unusual to get harassed via email or on team calls, for no other reason than colleagues trying to demonstrate their authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the company is made up of more than just a sales team. Don't waste time trying to appear like a mature company with development plans for employees if none of the management will actually participate in them. Try to maintain decent, qualified staff and remove the employees that are actually obstructing productivity.

    Pros

    Offer, customer base, engineers are awesome - also the company knows how to address the different markets

    Cons

    During my time with Intralinks it was the most chaotic experience with the management I'll ever had and the EVP did lie and act without communication

    I worked at Intralinks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, Great tactical tools, central locations, and constant change.

    Cons

    Terrible software development, unable to keep up pace with the market and make true enterprise solutions. Commoditized value proposition with capabilities eroded by new market entrants, or horizontal players. Constant change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a strategy for more than 5 minutes.

    Remove vast quantities of light weight middle management who seem to empire build. Enhance communication internally.

    I have been working at Intralinks

    Pros

    Good product/technology
    Work with very talented people
    Good pay and benefits
    Good brand

    Cons

    Very political
    Sales management walk all over the other functions and don’t care what happens to others so long as they get what they want.
    Advancement opportunity hinges on relationships.
    Does not promote creative thinking from employees - expected to just do as you are told.
    Senior management pretends to listen to feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales Management should not be allowed to walk all over other functions. Stop letting go of good talented people. Listen to what the employees have to say and act on it. It can be a great company but the internal politics lets you down.

    I have been working at Intralinks

    Pros

    Customers like what we have to offer, it makes selling easy, as a SaaS product you know what if does and how to sell it, the new stuff that is coming this year will add a lot

    Cons

    You are always limited by the SaaS model so you need to walk away offten if the requirment does not fit the product, more so than other products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep going as you are, give us more configuration and we will give you more sales

    An exciting and relevant proposition

    Former Employee - Account Director in London, England

    I worked at Intralinks

    Pros

    The people, culture and clients are great and rise to some very innovative challenges. Fantastically positions to take advantage of a number of convergent opportunities in the market. Strong corporate structure, and deep domain support for clients.
    Clients come first and the focal energy on success is unrivalled.

    Cons

    idiosyncrasies in some senior individuals weakened operations, I understand most of these have moved on. The energy and vibrancy in the environment allow you to work through these although you do get a bit of a rough ride.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on strengths and success will follow, promote from within.
