I worked at IDC (International Data Corporation) full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Most analysts are smart and have been in their space for many years. If in the right team work can be intellectually stimulation.

Relaxed work atmosphere. Flexible working hours. Fairly good benefit package.

Cons

Many analysts and managers have been in their position for many years and are not *really* innovative and out-of-the-box thinkers as they think they are.

Strong focus on quarter-to-quarter profitability stands in the way of innovation and long term strategic planning. Fragmented and complex P&L structure leads to inefficiencies, turf protection and makes it difficult for clients.

Business practices and IT systems are very behind.

Advice to Management

Practice what you preach to clients: use relevant business metrics, long term strategic planning, invest for the future.

    I worked at IDC (International Data Corporation) (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are respectful to each other. Good culture and easy to get use to.

    Cons

    Company does not believe in competitive salaries. Bottom line is more important than retaining good people with many years of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management does not communicate well and tends not to encourage entrepreneurship. Lack of process in a mature company is described as "being entrepreneurial"
