    I have been working at IDG Enterprise full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has thrived despite general economic conditions. It's smartly managed and has maintained a good portfolio of tech publications. Benefits are very good. Health care excellent. Retirement is 401K, and while there is employer contribution, you need to save aggressively. Management thinks clearly, communicates often with employees, and is very connected with the broader publishing industry trends. People have left and returned. Professional environment with high standards. Thoughtful place that's open to employee feedback. People are friendly.

    Cons

    As with any place that offers a decent salary and benefits package, the risk is that you may become risk-averse about taking on new challenges with a different employer. The internal promotion path is less than clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great team of coworkers. Interesting events to work on - good exposure to different event types, clients, etc. Good vacation/ time off policy.

    Cons

    Working for a media company in this economy is stressful - uncertain future, layoffs, etc. Restrictive events budgets made our jobs very difficult and frustrating at times. Not too much support for training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees - not just the management team.

    Pros

    The CEO is a good guy and enthusiastic about his company.

    Cons

    Depending on your group, you could be working with some great people. Alternatively, you could work with completely frustrating and difficult people - and that will make every single day pain-staking and exhausting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When people quit - REPLACE THEM. Leaving open vacancies for years on end piles the work onto the people who are left, who will inevitably quit because they're no longer happy.

    Pros

    Benefits, free bagels on Friday

    Cons

    Corporate is very page view focused, but doesn't set clear goals. We missed what the company wanted without even knowing we were failing.

    Doesn't Recommend
