    I have been working at IDT full-time

    Pros

    I have seen a lot of great changes at IDT since I joined. They have completely embraced agile development, they are hiring. I like the direction it is going.

    Cons

    Some of the technology is older and is being re-written.

    Advice to Management

    Would like more time to work on hacking type projects that could benefit the company. Do more to make it a fun place to work. Beer in the afternoon or evenings would be nice.

    I have been working at IDT full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Nice clean office. Parking garage and easy commute. Apples, bananas and oranges in the kitchen for the taking several times a week.

    Cons

    Everyone is underpaid and undervalued. No chance for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the employees better. Give them an incentive to work harder.

      I worked at IDT full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      collaborative and friendly environment. Good work life balance. Hard work is appreciated by business. Superior benefits. Everyone counts.

      Cons

      Somewhat of a disconnect between management and employees. Some depts can use better career growth and newer technologies.

      Advice to Management

      Bridge the gap between all levels. Be more transparent about projects. If pulling the plug due to lack of interest. Keep atmosphere upbeat. Don't overhire and then have constant threat of layoffs; robbing employees peace of mind. Invest more in keeping cutting edge in product development. You were the innovators of VOIP, continue being the leaders.

      I have been working at IDT full-time

      Pros

      Free booze, so much socialization online and offline, so many fun activities, so much fun. Colleagues can date and marry. I can wear what I’d like, since dress code is not enforced.

      Cons

      If you are a recovering alcoholic, this is not the place for you. Medical plans are a joke. It’s a rampant rumor mill because of HR.

      Advice to Management

      Stop peddling alcohol to your employees and give raises. There is too much distraction going on so please adjust deliverables properly.

      We enjoy having fun events at IDT and love to plan even more of them! Our dress code isn't strict, and we feel that benefits our employees in two ways: 1. Lower budget required for work attire. 2. Freedom to work comfortably. We have clear policies that limit workplace fraternization ...
