I have been working at IDC (International Data Corporation) full-time
The company is very decentralized, so within your area, there can be opportunities for autonomy, but if depends where you are. There is flexibility given on hours and working from home. At least in my area, management mostly leaves you alone to do your job.
Making changes in the company feels impossible as the culture is extremely risk averse and resistant to any kind of change. The analysts are perceived as being all important. Employees in any other role are definitely second class. The work/life balance is extremely skewed in many areas, due to layoffs and people left handling multiple work loads. There is no clear path for career advancement. It seems to be very ad hoc and dependent on your manager/department/who you know and not on true ability.
Advice to Management
The world is changing, and changing fast. Get on board and embrace it, or join the dinosaurs. Value your support roles. They're the ones that keep it all together.
