    Pros

    Marketing has experienced a face lift.

    VIA's improving and the product's a good effort to broaden our product offering.

    Striving to provide a total solution for the M&A life cycle.

    Cons

    Hard work and extra efforts are not rewarded.

    Culture of bullying and backstabbing exists

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees right and the other two benefit.

    Pros

    In-house training. Standardized sales process, regional sales operations for complex deals.

    Cons

    Hire and fire culture. Doesn't reward hard work, many good employees have left.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and allow managers to have reviews from their reports. Strive towards a truely American company where mutual respect is the way of life.

    Pros

    -Benefits
    -New CMO trying to lighten up the culture
    -Very interesting technology
    -Smart people

    Cons

    -Suburban office in the middle of no where - no where to go for lunch or socialize after work
    -No matter how hard you work and contribute you will not be recognized..you will face roadblock after roadblock when trying to contribute more and advance your career
    -Backstabbing/bullying is rampant across the company while upper management turns a blind eye
     -Extremely high turn over which means new people are constantly coming in and having to catch up to speed - there is no consistent teams working toward the same initiative for long enough to achieve anything (which is why the product never progresses)
    -The high turn over is because there is lack of career advancement from within - constantly firing people at random and bringing in new people from Novell
    -Very creepy that new Waltham office is in the same exact suite as Novell was

    Advice to Management

    FIX THE CULTURE! Treat your hard working employees with respect and help them to succeed. The technology is interesting and this company has tremendous potential to be a really good place to work. But the changes have to start with upper management and trickle down. To start, remove the roadblocks that are preventing your hard working employees from going anywhere...

    Talent is being driven out. Investment in good employees sparse.

    Pros

    Youthful environment
    Lots of intriguing promises being stated about growth

    Cons

    Clear across the company that seemingly random clear outs of talent are part of hidden plan to secure a sale of company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop double talk. Create a fair playing field across the company. This includes treatment of work force and checks and balances among ELT conduct. Eliminate the corruption. Listen to the employees and follow through to rectify issues.

    Pros

    Flexible, decent pay, nice bonus. Benefits we meh...

    Cons

    When they brought in a new CEO to stabilize the company he started bringing in his former Novell co-workers. They have since moved to Waltham right in the same building Novell was or is in. They started moving long term employees out to make room for folks at the C level who speak broken English and can't function. I was to get out when I did and feel they did me a favor.

    Advice to Management

    Worry about the actual company and how you can keep things going. Stop developing new junk and wasting money on it. VIA was a joke. Stop tyring to get rid of folks who helped build things out and look at upper management.

    Pros

    It's an exciting time to work for Intralinks-- double digit growth and a focus on building great, innovative products. We're in a brand new, contemporary office space, and there's great energy in the company, from the executive team on down. In general, I think the compensation is well above industry average-- In many ways, it feels like a very well-funded startup company, despite the fact that we're well established and a market leader. I think the best thing about Intralinks is the people-- we enjoy working together and have mutual respect for our abilities. It's a smart, empowered group of people.

    Cons

    We're growing fast, so the days can often be long. That doesn't bother me so much, since I love what I do.
