    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Note to Penton Management: Stop circling the wagons and stop protecting yourselves at the expense of your employees.

    There are way too many chiefs at Penton. And everyone -- management and staff alike -- are now dancing for the investors. The good news is that Penton was rescued several years ago by private equity investors. The bad news is Penton was rescued by private equity investors.

    Morale is at an all-time low and many former employees have voted with their feet. Penton has lost a lot of talent – sales, editorial, etc. -- during the past 12 months and management doesn't seem to care. Many departures are directly related to incompetent managing at the VP level, and yet those execs remain. Again, stop circling the wagons!

    Meanwhile, many of the employees who remain are in survival mode, and hoping to find opportunities elsewhere. Others would welcome being laid off with severance. This was once a proud, vibrant company. Now, it's a shell of a company for which there is no buyer. It's a house of cards that will one day collapse.
