I worked at IDG Enterprise (More than a year)

Pros

lots of work to do, you'll always be busy most of the people who work there are nice short commute

Cons

everyone is overworked, you won't have time to do do your best effort and no one in management cares as long as they remain super profitable and get big bonus checks. churn and burn! high turnover due to low salaries is part of the plan. coworkers who had been there a while said they used to pay decent but a few years ago they cut everyone's pay 10% so lots of the best people quit or got laid off. very low pay compared to where i work at now doing same job. most employees i talk to still there don't seem very happy. my new boss actually asked me about it in the interview, not sure how he had heard this. when i left idg i met with HR, they asked everyone why people leave but i didn't say much. it didn't seem to matter. they used to say my current company treated employees badly, but i've been here for almost 2 years and it doesn't seem that way. they must just say that so you're scared to quit.

Advice to Management

no need to give advice to managers unless its how to make more profit or trim payroll, thats the only stat that matters there. they'll do great. every month they have a meeting and tell you how many millions they're going to make. you probably won't see it in your paycheck though.

    I have been working at IDG Enterprise full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Talented colleagues, camaraderie, great products, excellent reputation in the field, mostly good benefits, a head-and-shoulders better place to work than my last tech media company.

    Cons

    Top management lacks vision and has stomach only for short-term strategies (few long-term investments). The business is run more like a public company than the private company it is. Technology and content are not priorities. Ideas that bubble up rarely go anywhere. Lack of respect for internal expertise. Recurring comparisons to consumer competition; we're B2B. Various departments have little understanding of what each other does. After so many cuts during the recession, people are worn out by extending themselves again and again to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Most of what's good about the company dates back to the 90s and before; most of what's negative from an employee perspective came about during the last 10 to 15 years. That's not a positive trend. Advice: Address some of the cons.
