    I have been working at IDC (International Data Corporation) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing private company culture. Great brand. Uncapped earnings and the ability to go wherever your talents and abilities take you - you see the benefits of your hard work. Innovative environment that supports people that take risks and try new things. Gives you the opportunity to fail. Well resourced. Lots of smart people and the worlds best companies for clients.

    Cons

    Sharp learning curve - global company that covers a lot of IT topics and has a lot of products. It can take a long time figure it all out. Lots of opportunities means that the work is never done - the expectations are reasonable, but no ones going to tell you not to go close more business. Driven company poised for growth - people like to work, not super social, no kegerators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier to collaborate across company units. Consider strategic acquisitions to increase capabilities and increase market share. Keep building and refining product lines. Is there a way to make research more sexy?
