Not a competitive salary, but phenomenal company benefits (health, dental, 401k, etc...)

BILLING DIRECTOR (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsThe best reason hands down is that IDG hires some of the smartest folks in the publishing industry, regardless of specific department. They also carry some of the BEST medical coverage and numerous other perks (commuter checks, 37.5 hour work week, training & education, technology purchase program...)

ConsUnfortunately, the communication of the company's mission or drive for current projects is lacking. It seemed to me that lots of people are working in a bubble. Also, there was a problem with follow through or completion of certain goals set by upper management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
