    Current Employee - Art Director in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Penton

    Pros

    - good place for designers who like and are able to work independently of other creatives
    - no corporate art leadership micromanaging you
    - creatives work on Mac OS
    - casual dress code
    - downtown location

    Cons

    - lacks corporate art leadership to counter-balance editorial and sales tiers (art staff reports to and is reviewed by editorial)
    - lacks corporate-defined career growth pathways
    - lacks atmosphere of creative collaboration
    - belated workflow innovation, slow to upgrade applications and very, very little to no training
    - low end of salary scale, no bonus opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize and leverage graphic design as a business tool. Unleash your creative staff's talents for the market brand as a whole, not just print or web.
