Great benefits, but don't stay too long

Pros

You are also working with extremely bright and talented people - who have a passion for putting out the very best product. One of the best reasons to work at IDG is their benefits program. They do have bagel Friday's. And there's a good work/life balance.

Cons

It use to be a place where you were proud to have put in years of service. However, it's no longer true (is it true anywhere?). The Publishing industry is changing, and so is IDG. So be prepared for a roller coaster of a ride.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can't replace experience.

    Pros

    Good networking opportunities - and they are large, you can move around within the corporation. They offer training classes which was great. Ranging from technical trainings to career/personal development opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay was not very high, room for growth was limited and there was little to any communication to employees about things that were happening. It was difficult to get HR involved with management issues as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training was great

  2.  

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

    Pros

    IDG'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.

    Cons

    Office 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 ManagementAdvice

    To 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.
