    Some good smart colleagues around.

    Some Managers/directors act like kids driving engineers to leave the place.
    Unfairness and disrespect to employees.
    HR department is not for the employees. I feel the place like a big gangster company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the company growth first before your personal growth.
    Put a process and follow it for god's sake.
    Be fair on applying your promotion guidelines on all employees.
    If 5 engineers left in less than a year complaining about a director. Most likey they are right HR!

    Pros

    Idirect is very good on time flexibility. Taking time off to handle personal issues is very well supported at Idirect.

    Cons

    The downside of working Idirect lies with its senior management. They do a horrible job managing highly skilled professionals. Senior Mgmt gets defensive and intimidated very easy when dealing with direct reports who are highly skilled.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership needs to acquired the skilles necessary to lead talented people and not feel intimidated.
