Pros

IDC is a well known name in Fixed Income research. You can parlay this experience to other opportunities in finance.

This specific job is strictly 9-5 and does not require maximum dedication or effort.

Cons

The work performed was in no way challenging. It was generally mindless busy work with some mildly interesting tasks sprinkled about.

Salary increases were delayed twice.

The office did not provide training or professional development for young employees. There were no education seminars offered and input was never requested.

The office culture was very muted. There was very little interaction between departments, and most of the conversation was small talk and pleasantries. Cakes were frequent and reminiscent of Office Space. Internet use was strictly monitored, and supervisors were strict about break duration, lateness, and time away from desk.

Advice to Management

Providing a professional atmosphere, developing young talent, and offering more competitive compensation would allow IDC to grow from within.
