    Pros

    Office was renovated and that was nice

    Cons

    its not if the company will go down, more like when. Awful management, rampant nepotism, outdated technology, unwilling to pay for talent. Avoid working here if you can!

    Pros

    I hear new tech all the time, getting to work on them and learn them is pretty cool.

    Cons

    The company should send it's employees to conferences and tech meets. Have more lunch and learn I hear about them but they don't happen.

    Advice to Management

    Lots has changed in a past few years but it's not enough. We need to seed more ideas and empower people to rise up for IDT. Help me help you

    Good vacation time. New offices.

    Difficult team members. Lots of history that they are having trouble shedding to bring the company to the future
