    Poor middle management and upper management. Misconception that outside people hold the answers.

    I worked at IDG Enterprise full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits were always good.

    Cons

    When I was there outside management came in, hired their friends, let go anyone they did not know. My department head liked to take the department out as an excuse to get drunk. Never really understood where we were, what we had accomplished, and what the future would hold. Just wanted to delete anything that came before. When that happened, by firing people and hiring over priced consultants, other people in middle management were scared, said nothing, did nothing -- just sat by and saved their own jobs. Many good people were affected. I learned that my real friends were not the ones I thought. Working there was my life. I thought that my co-workers were like family. Eventually my department head was indeed let go and now the company is worse off for it and paying for her incompetence. I don't think they will learn from the past and are doomed to repeat it. I still stay in touch with some people there and wish them all the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect. Listen. Acknowledge. Learn. Trust. Empower. Seams pretty obvious.
    They need to keep things flat and not obsess on the "marshmallow on the stick" -- nod to a Ted Talk by Tom Wujec.
