Pros

The location was good in some ways. Benefits package was satisfactory. Majority of the coworkers were nice people and good to work with.

Cons

The senior management managed to completely screw up the company within 2 years. Not only that, my immediate supervisor was absolutely awful and a pure pain to deal with. While growth opportunities were present they were quite limited mostly consisting of doing more of the same thing for a little more money. I was lied to about the salary from the get-go as well and ended up to be somewhat underpaid (although admittedly not by a huge amount). Altogether a place I would rather forget.

Advice to Management

Listen to smart people within the company, they know what's going on. Oh wait, vast majority of them already got fired or left on their own accord.

    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.
