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

    Pros

    Friendly team; comfortable working environment. Location of the office is convenient for public transport.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership - things tend to just drift, without anything really happening. Work/life balance difficult to maintain as holidays are frequently cancelled. Salary could be better - inflation is rarely taken into consideration. Most of all, no prospects of further career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the good people (and you have a few) more; invest in better technology (ironic isn't it) - although recently more has been done.

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

    Pros

    Great work environment, nice people, great HR and overall HR policies are employee friendly, analysts are the best on the market, an industry known brand to work for, exciting projects to work on

    Cons

    Management is very conservative and not open to new ideas. IT tools are outdated. An Excel P&L run company where numbers come before people. Some country managers should have been gone long time ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more into people and work on their retention, employee engagement, etc. Recognise new opportunities and give a chance for employees to work on new models, projects that are out of the usual scope. Step up and be able to make uncomfortable decisions and don't hold onto numbers only. Stop protecting faulty senior managers
