Pros
  • Paid on time, worked with an amazing team in San Francisco remotely, for one of their clients (in 4 reviews)

  • Perks are standard and work life balance is usually good (in 4 reviews)

Cons
  • It's a contract job no benefits, no paid time off, health insurance is full price (in 7 reviews)

  • They offer no support whatsoever when it comes to disputes with the clients, and the contractor gets the short end of the stick as a result, every time (in 5 reviews)

    I worked at CDI (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was good and the hours were flexible.

    Cons

    They would tell me to take days off until they had more work. It was not consistent nor well-managed.

    Pros

    Decent pay that's about it

    Cons

    Contracting company i was laid off and didn't know until that day even though it was reported to them the day before. Your own if you want to stay within the company and obtain another contract (the tell you otherwise) Benefits are EXTREMELY over priced

    Pros

    I enjoyed my co-workers, the pay was decent..and they have free fruit and coffee.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE Site Management, lack of respect, low morale, toxic work environment, constant lay offs, and the employees are not valued, your just a number. The management moves at 100 mph with no direction...HR refuses to do anything about the complaints they've received. It's a COMPLETE disaster.

    Advice to Management

    The current site leadership team needs to be replaced with TRUE LEADERS. The employees that are left should be valued and more importantly respected. Great people aren't replaceable.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are supportive. Immediate manager supportive. Actual nature of work was engaging, exciting and cutting edge. I learned a lot about good content management of a website and picked up many tricks for good business practices in general. Most certainly a learning experience. I look at this job as a boot camp. Some place you go for a short time, work like a dog, bleed, sweat and cry, then leave for something better where you'll have respect.

    Cons

    Very little recognition for accomplishments. No raise to speak of in the over 2 1/2 years I was there, despite the fact I was in the top 10% for performance on my team. Worked hard and long and it was never good enough. Upper management completely disengaged from workers. HR has no presence in workers lives. Managers are quick to point out mistakes and broadcast them. Yet rarely give credit for good work. Zero trust from management. Though I performed admirably up to the end, I always felt I was one step away from the chopping block. Lived every day in fear of what nasty feedback I'd receive.

    Advice to Management

    "We didn't budget for raises" was one excuse I heard from 2nd level manager upon asking for the 12th time why I didn't get one. Restructure your budget to reward good performance. People don't work for you out of the goodness of their hearts. Bestow trust on employees who have earned it. Change your miserly ways and give a bone to the infantry once in a while.

    Bad moral, employees are under valued and not appreciated...zero stars if that was possible.

    Pros

    The flexible schedule and PTO are the only good things cdi has going for it right now. Coworkers felt like family.

    Cons

    There has been no raises in 2 years, but they are beginning to remodel. Turnovers are high, there are more empty cubes than actual people. Forced into after hours training (training required to do our jobs) without pay. Scheduled as independent development, but were basically told "it was in employees best interest" to be there. The only way to get promoted is to quit and come back. They pay lower than competitors and benefits are horrible if you aren't in upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Be good to your employees, and they will in turn be good to you and produce quality product.
