  1. A place I would prefer to forget.

    Pros

    The location was good in some ways. Benefits package was satisfactory. Majority of the coworkers were nice people and good to work with.

    Cons

    The senior management managed to completely screw up the company within 2 years. Not only that, my immediate supervisor was absolutely awful and a pure pain to deal with. While growth opportunities were present they were quite limited mostly consisting of doing more of the same thing for a little more money. I was lied to about the salary from the get-go as well and ended up to be somewhat underpaid (although admittedly not by a huge amount). Altogether a place I would rather forget.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to smart people within the company, they know what's going on. Oh wait, vast majority of them already got fired or left on their own accord.


  2. Company is failing apart

    Pros

    Competitive benefits package and that's about it

    Cons

    Company is in complete disarray Communication is non-existent Sick corporate culture - its not what you know, its who you know Planning is irrational Success is not rewarded, failure is accepted

    Advice to Management

    Clean house at the top, the current management has clearly failed repeatedly Share information with individuals and give suggestions a fair hearing

    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

    interesting industry if you are into online gambling and poker

    Cons

    management on all levels including aymeric are incompetent, hypocritical, impossible to work with. seems to be no direction in the company and no body is on the same page. work is meaningless, oftentimes my direct manager and even senior management doesnt seem to know the significance of our work. as a result, the company is directionless, and has gone nowhere but down. the company has been a mess.
