    I have been working at CIDC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture, flexible schedule, smart passionate people, fun work

    Cons

    The parent company in France didn't know how to direct the company and made too much swing on the goal. I wish they listen to the Cambridge management and let the upper management here in US be in control earlier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish the parent company can learn the lesson.

    I have been working at CIDC full-time

    Pros

    The employees were its best assets. They were committed to see the company succeed. Management was cognizant of work/life balance. Flexibility in allowing employees to work remotely when needed.

    Cons

    External market forces caused profitability to suffer. Questionable decisions were made by some members of Senior Management (who were not familiar with our core business) that ended up costing the company financially and set the table for its decline. There was a perceived lack of support from our European parent company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late now... but if they (our parent company) left our Senior Management in place instead of bringing in inexperienced managers we would still be viable.
