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

Pros

Early access to responsibility, business development, and management opportunities.

Cons

For a private business, very bottom-line oriented. Often results in employee and research group cuts before full chance to bloom...very quick hook.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company seen as great place for first 5 years and last 5 years of career. Middle prime years are better spent elsewhere due to salary ceilings and very conservative management nature.

    I have been working at IDC (International Data Corporation) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent salary, flexible work life, stable clients, good brand, smart colleagues

    Cons

    Org is run as P/L and quarterly profit focus. Consequently under investment in training, people and systems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower HR to ensure talented folks remain and are offered lateral or upward mobility, rather than quit due to favoritism.
