I worked at IDG Enterprise (More than a year)

Pros

lots of work to do, you'll always be busy
most of the people who work there are nice
short commute

Cons

everyone is overworked, you won't have time to do do your best effort and no one in management cares as long as they remain super profitable and get big bonus checks.

churn and burn! high turnover due to low salaries is part of the plan. coworkers who had been there a while said they used to pay decent but a few years ago they cut everyone's pay 10% so lots of the best people quit or got laid off.

very low pay compared to where i work at now doing same job. most employees i talk to still there don't seem very happy. my new boss actually asked me about it in the interview, not sure how he had heard this. when i left idg i met with HR, they asked everyone why people leave but i didn't say much. it didn't seem to matter. they used to say my current company treated employees badly, but i've been here for almost 2 years and it doesn't seem that way. they must just say that so you're scared to quit.

Advice to Management

no need to give advice to managers unless its how to make more profit or trim payroll, thats the only stat that matters there. they'll do great. every month they have a meeting and tell you how many millions they're going to make. you probably won't see it in your paycheck though.

    I have been working at IDG Enterprise full-time

    Pros

    Has a history of being an innovative company with products very respected in the market.

    Cons

    Has been slower to evolve in today's fast paced word, and while the work life balance is good, the benefits of that do not justify the lower than industry pay scales across the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the company, and the employees.
