    Pros

    Hargrove can be a laid-back place to work, but it does have its times, especially when a lot of shows are going on at once. A sense of family is placed on the employees and many employees in fact are the very best of friends. The company is not huge and everyone knows everyone else for the most part. There are planned activities often enough that try to get the employees closer together, and the company has recently started a "go green" initiative as well as community service events to help out.

    Cons

    Moving up is not easy, and is primarily done by networking, not skills. You have to be very close to your "superiors" to have them put in a good word for you. Management is shady often enough. A few employees over the years were fired in weird ways, such as notifying a critical employee just after leaving work not to come in the next day. Another employee was forcibly logged out of his computer and later told to leave. In this and other situations, emails were later send out describing completely different events. You have to remain on everyone's good side to be secure here. Benefits are also not that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent! Care more about your employees, and get some modern water fountains.

    I have been working at Hargrove full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are awesome, great sense of pride in work, the company is very reputable in the event/trade show industry and that is reflected in the employees passion for what they do; very flexible work schedule for many; great opportunity for people in the creative or account management arena to get their feet wet, especially right out of college.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are communication between departments, senior leadership is still a bit archaic in their approach to employee engagement; need better work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill, take the controls down a bit. Allow department heads to put together programs that will not just benefit their employees, but the company. Be an example!
