    Worst decision of my career....It didn't help that they, the Sales Manager, was deceitful during the interview process.

    I worked at CIO Executive Council full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only pros for working with the CIO Executive Council is that they are backed by IDG and you get all the benefits that you would receive from a large organization. Thats about it.

    Cons

    There are many cons...IDG as a whole works in a very decentralized way which allows some "bad apples" to find their way into positions that would be better served by someone else. As the headline suggest, the Sales Manager was deceitful during the interview process. NR is what we all have come to know in the industry as a PIMM. When I went through the interview process, she clearly lied or is oblivious to what a micro manager is. She is a PIMM. In addition, they also lied about the track that this division of the company is on. The say that they are growing but in actuality they are are just moving people within the organization and consolidating positions. Also, they say that they promote from with in and this is true to an extent. But what they do not tell you is that there is a serious case of cronyism at all levels. So if you have an issue with the SM or anyone, good luck. Also, if you have short or long term ambitions to be a manager, its safe to say it won't be for or with the CIO Executive Council.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to clear out the Executive team all the way down to the Sales Manager
