  2.  

    Great potential, executed poorly. Lack of interest in employees (and clients for that matter)

    I have been working at Convene

    Pros

    Beautiful conference centers and some wonderful associates.

    Cons

    Employees are treated terribly, asked to work too many hours and penalized for not wanting to work 12 hours days on a weekly basis.

    It is upsetting to see how some employees are treated and something needs to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to get their act together. If you want to keep your company running, stop treating your good employees terribly and get rid of the rotten eggs.

    Will lay workers off without giving them a chance to show talent

    I worked at Convene

    Pros

    Some people are very friendly and helpful. The founders have a great vision and the company has potential if ran well.

    Cons

    They will lay you off without any indication - in fact, they will notify you after you leave work for the day.
    Also, this company is a start up with delinquency issues and its financial head is a disaster.
    They have been having "corporate restructurings" every so often.
    The accounting dept is ran as if the company were a mom and pop shop.
    There was no training whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to re-evaluate its talent. The company has excellent potential as a start up but when certain people don't take their jobs seriously, it can be a real drag.
