        I worked at CDC Software (Hong Kong) full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Best reasons to work: Management was reachable and flexible. Transfer of H1B visa at no cost. Tele-commute is an option if the client agrees.

        Cons

        Cons were : No directions from manager as it was pure agreed percentage to work on H1B visa. Too much of work load.

      • "great company, bad financial decisions"

        • Compensation and Benefits

        Former Employee - Senior Tech Lead in Lombard, IL

        I worked at CDC Software (Hong Kong) full-time for more than 10 years

        Pros

        It was a great company, until the wrong financial decisions were made. Corporate acquisition is the key factor for the failure of this company.

        Cons

        good company I hate to see you go...

        Advice to Management

        Bring this company back, bring the old crew back, and start building great software again as you did back in the early 90's

        Negative Outlook
        Disapproves of CEO

        I have been working at CDC Software (Hong Kong) full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        the work is neither hard nor demanding and the new blood that coming on seems to be wanting to show their feathers and capabilities to the top brass who are still trying to figure out the direction given the entire change of the top levels

        Cons

        the work isn't fulfilling and the change in leadership is seemingly lost in translation, not from Chinese to English, but from Silicon Valley-ish to Indianapolis/Atlanta lingo. The mash-up of Vista fame is not happening fast enough to make us famous in a good way.

        Advice to Management

        get your tools and people to play well together in the same sandbox and we might have a chance to overcome the bad press of lawsuits, legal issues, financial troubles and the wounds caused to all the former employees who went through this stuff... it still effects the new people, even with a name change and new location (which is worse than the old location!)

        Doesn't Recommend

        I have been working at CDC Software (Hong Kong) full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        It is an international company. Have chance to communicate and work with people from other contries. The benefit package is good. Coworkers are nice.

        Cons

        Not much traning and learning opportunity. Promotion is not easy. High turn-over rate. Currently it is experiencing changes and hard to say it will be better or worse.
