    I worked at International Data Group full-time


    Middle management and lower level employees worked well driving the vision and mission of the company. Good benefits with fitness reimbursement, vacation, mentor program, and computer reimbursement. Good company to work for if you have a family, they respect having a good work/life balance.


    Pay was not on par with technology companies. Limited growth. Leadership changed mission statement too often, lack of true direction. Senior Management didn't communicate well with the staff and clearly showed favoritism to certain employees. Company culture changed drastically after the passing of Pat McGovern the founder of IDG.
