I worked at IDC (International Data Corporation) full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Most analysts are smart and have been in their space for many years. If in the right team work can be intellectually stimulation.

Relaxed work atmosphere. Flexible working hours. Fairly good benefit package.

Cons

Many analysts and managers have been in their position for many years and are not *really* innovative and out-of-the-box thinkers as they think they are.

Strong focus on quarter-to-quarter profitability stands in the way of innovation and long term strategic planning. Fragmented and complex P&L structure leads to inefficiencies, turf protection and makes it difficult for clients.

Business practices and IT systems are very behind.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach to clients: use relevant business metrics, long term strategic planning, invest for the future.
