A good step for learning about a wide range of IT services and products. There are many different markets and teams which makes the culture an enjoyable atmosphere.

The team leaders are very friendly and approachable. The companies that IDG Direct work on behalf of are top tier companies including the likes of Microsoft, Oracle, IBM. You are expected to make a high volume of outbound cold calls at least 120+ per day.


Overall the experience that I had while working with IDG Direct has been a positive experience which I would recommend to somebody who is wishing to start a career in the IT Industry.

I spent almost 12 months working for IDG Dublin. A mongst the many call centre roles I had over 20 this certainly ranks the worst.
I'm fine working in a fast paced target driven environmen though if you were a top performer as I was with a few slack weeks they want you gone. No support from a dreadful HR unit.

Would not recommend even for entry level or between jobs.
Pros
Decent and sociable mainly younger colleagues.
Cons
Bad and impersonal management. Teriible job security and little reward.

They need to care more about the people who make them their money. After probation is where you'll start having problems. Everyone is replaceable and you feel it
