    Too much centralized management in Framingham. The management has been the same people for years. It needs new blood.
    Pay is poor, especially if you work out the hourly rate.

    Advice to Management

    Get management out of Framingham. At the same time, introduce new management.
    Reduce reliance on P&L obsession

    I have been working at IDC (International Data Corporation) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Established research programs
    Strong brand name
    Worldwide coverage
    Flexible time and work location

    Cons

    Everything runs on excel sheet - from research to P&L. Very conservative, risk adverse and resistant to change culture while IDC predictions focus on changes happening in IT and how to embrace them. No respect for employee's work and life balance. Overload of work and unrealistic goals. No accountability internally at multiple levels.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and empower your employee not only on paper
