    I have been working at CIDC full-time

    Pros

    The employees were its best assets. They were committed to see the company succeed. Management was cognizant of work/life balance. Flexibility in allowing employees to work remotely when needed.

    Cons

    External market forces caused profitability to suffer. Questionable decisions were made by some members of Senior Management (who were not familiar with our core business) that ended up costing the company financially and set the table for its decline. There was a perceived lack of support from our European parent company.

    Advice to Management

    Too late now... but if they (our parent company) left our Senior Management in place instead of bringing in inexperienced managers we would still be viable.

    Pros

    interesting industry if you are into online gambling and poker

    Cons

    management on all levels including aymeric are incompetent, hypocritical, impossible to work with. seems to be no direction in the company and no body is on the same page. work is meaningless, oftentimes my direct manager and even senior management doesnt seem to know the significance of our work. as a result, the company is directionless, and has gone nowhere but down. the company has been a mess.

    Pros

    If you want to work in one of the fast moving industries this is the place. It is in a new industry that is rapidly changing, which is both challenging and frustrating at one time. At CIDC talent will be given lot of responsibility and it is a good place to grow your career if you are dedicated and keep your eyes open as the organisation continuously evolves.

    After summer of 2010 there is a new management in place, who is more visionary and give clear communication of what is expected of the company and each division within the company.

    Cons

    Development projects can be a challenge due to complex data structure. There are not a lack of projects at CIDC, but more lack of resources to get them completed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work together with employees to build the roadmap for the upcoming years. There is a large internal talent base who is interested to contribute.
