    I have been working at GL events full-time (More than 5 years)


    - Numerous international projects and opportunities abroad - The company has a strong position in all of the MICE industries sectors: venue management, exhibitions, event services - Good place to start your career in the event industry


    - The company is divided in a numerous (dozens) branches which do not cooperate efficiently - Very few growth opportunities - There is no career management or internal mobility HR services for middle managers

    Advice to Management

    After several years as a project manager, I had no choice but to leave GL events to get a better position somewhere else as no opportunities were offered by HR or my manager. Still, I'm sure there were opportunities for me within the group but nobody (my manager, HR...) took the time to consider my ability to ascend to a better position within GL events.
