A prestigious company too relaxed and near-sighted to brace itself for the future.

ProsIDG's employees hold a great amount of respect for one another; overall the office culture is very comfortable. The company is very accommodating to your personal needs in terms of benefits and getting time off. It's a great company to work for if you're a seasoned professional with a family.

ConsOffice comfort works as a double-edged sword. The company's leaders seem to be primarily interested in customer (i.e. readership) retention rather than expansion. In doing so it falls short when it comes to embracing new, original ideas, which would in effect attract a new set of regular visitors.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo let go of the old regime and develop a clearer vision for a new one. To seek to both retain and expand its reader base.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
