    Pros

    Competitive benefit, the place to meet many nice/talented people. I've enjoyed my role at CIDC and they will give you opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Poor communication in whole entire company, there should be major improvement in senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should listen to each employees' feedback closely.
