    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at IDC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    IDC is global, so it's easy to build a global professional network via daily interactions. Employees are bright and talented, which makes the type of work more tolerable.

    Cons

    IDC is global, with power centralized, and thus good ideas don't seem to ever trickle to the top from lower levels of the company. Several people in management have no skills or credentials to be in management, and were hired because they were a friend of a friend of someone who works there.

    Director level employees are experienced. Good for fresh graduates, also good for mid level employees, ample opportunities to grow. If you are willing to spend time learning you will surely be recognized.

    Cons

    HR is bad. Very biased. Can be worked around.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone else for HR.
