    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.
