Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at BI Worldwide full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

They can be an exciting company to work at, with the variety of things they do: from event planning and business theatre, to group and individual travel, to recognition and loyalty. There are BIW offices all around the world, serving a truly worldwide audience.

Cons

The flat corporate structure makes advancement largely impossible, unless you happen to be one of the Insiders, or want to totally change jobs or departments. There are five levels: associate, senior associate (usually only title change, not an upgrade); team leader, director, vice president.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let associates participate in the performance reviews of those they report to. And trust your associates to telecommute effectively.

    I worked at BI Worldwide full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall it can be a very exciting company, with all the different things they do and offices all over the world. Management tries to make it a cool company to work for with summer parties, bands, and local restaurants selling lunch on site weekly.

    Cons

    Not all departments share equally in the excitement, because workload can make it hard to look up from your desk and see what else is going on. The 4-layer corporate structure makes it impossible to aspire to a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The performance review peer process is ok for associates, but how can you really know how a manager is doing without asking the people who report to him/her?
