What Sorority were you in

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsCasual attire, flexible schedule depending on who you report to, dog friendly unless you or your dog gets on someones badside, good location if you live in or around the "county"

ConsSalaries and promotions are reserved for those in the sorority. These members are identified as Directors and many of these are horrible managers without standards or accountabilty for their actions, attendence, spendatures.
Very top heavy and centalizing the jobs of the ones that actually make it happen.
The benefit of working on Pearl St is expressed as a reason for low salary ranges.
CYA is the name of the game as the stuff rolls and is thrown downhill.

Advice to Senior ManagementTime to trim the top level fat. Hold your Directors accountable as they get away with treating the employees poorly, extensive timeoff and huge spendatures.

If you're looking to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Unspecified (Current Employee) Boulder, CO

    I have been working at Penton full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Location and work/life balance. Flexible hours. Casual dress. Cons: No opportunity for advancement/career development. Nonexistent leadership.
