    I worked at CIDC full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, wonderful people, a true learning environment. Awesome perks and "fun things to do"!

    Cons

    Company closed down too soon...it would have been nice if the parent company found us alternate positions in the company or "kept us on" until we found alternate work.

    I worked at CIDC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The team I worked with was good and I enjoyed working with them. Company ethics towards most employees was pretty decent altogether and company wasn't greedy in certain ways.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Here are the worst offenders: 1. awful manager (perhaps the worst I ever had). He was out to prove he's worthy of his job by making his employees' lives difficult 2. boring responsibilities - nothing exciting to do at all. Really yawn-inspiring all-around 3. upper management smart enough to sink the entire company within a few years 4. they screwed me with salary promising one thing at first then after trial period was over they offered less than our original agreement was

    Advice to Management

    What advice? They don't exist anymore.

    Pros

    Great culture, flexible schedule, smart passionate people, fun work

    Cons

    The parent company in France didn't know how to direct the company and made too much swing on the goal. I wish they listen to the Cambridge management and let the upper management here in US be in control earlier.

    Advice to Management

    Wish the parent company can learn the lesson.

    Pros

    Everybody at CIDC pulls together, and is a joy to work with. I have never felt more friendly with my co-workers than I did there.

    Cons

    Upper management was completely unable to determine a goal for the company, and repeatedly switched among them multiple times just in my ~2.5 years there.

    Advice to Management

    You've got smart people, listen to them and let them innovate.
