    Pros

    The culture and the people are superb here, there is always something fun going on.

    HR are the most engaged, available and helpful I have encountered.

    Talented, passionate and engaged people

    Agile environment

    Fun!

    New direction of the company lead by a CEO that knows what he is doing

    Cons

    The Online gambling industry is in turmoil. It could be a tough few years but if the US market opens up it will be exciting

    Some management have not accepted the Agile transformation nor the need to keep up with the industry in terms of their technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider injecting some new blood in to the management/executive level to re-energize the company in terms of fresh ideas and approaches.

    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.
