Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at IDC (International Data Corporation) full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The brand name which now is completely faded

Cons

Quality of work and analysts has gone down considerably thats why its losing share to rivals like Ovum and CEB and Gartner. I started searching for new job within 15 days of joining the company. The HR practices are horrendous. The projects aren't coming up and the company is in a very bad shape. Avoid at all costs

Advice to Management

Honor the commitments made to the people while interviews.
