IDC is a dinosaur

Analyst (Former Employee) Framingham, MA

ProsVery interesting and dedicated analysts. Being an industry analyst at a well know firm gives you a great deal of access and entry into the biggest technology companies at an executive level. Work is interesting and you can take your research agenda in any direction you want - as long as you can retain a sufficient customer base.

ConsVery poor vision and operations - horribly inefficient and pretty poor leadership. Profitability model that charges extremely high rates to customers but squeezes P&Ls dry so it feels like you are always operating on a shoestring. Most investment decisions (including approving Blackberries to individual analysts) were made by 2-3 senior executives making it extremely difficult to innovate on business models, processes, tools.

Advice to Senior ManagementIDC needs a shake up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
