    A roller coaster ride for the last several years, with its ups & downs; definitely on the up in 2012.

    Pros

    Some people describe CIDC as a 10 year-old start-up. What they mean is that CIDC needs to behave like a start-up and get back into business growth mode. Be company-wide focused with
    flexibility, adaptability, and innovation.

    But CIDC is10 years old, with a talented workforce, a depth of domain expertise, an enterprise approach to their online gaming platform and services, and a healthy respect for their players.

    It is this combination that makes CIDC a challenging, and also great, place to work.

    Cons

    The executive management and corporate ownership changes of the recent years have had their toll on the company's morale, its ability to maintain focus, its ability execute. CIDC is not for the faint of heart.

    In October of 2011 CIDC became a stand-alone company again, with a new CEO (a 10 year CIDC veteran) and a charter to runs its own business. Early results indicate the previous downsides are being eliminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
