Interesting time to work at Penton

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsStrong executive leadership who are working hard to improve communication and structure
Very clear corporate strategy
Have emerged in strong financial position
Some impressive, passionate workers with deep ties to their industries and/or job function
Opportunities for tech and quant experts seeking family-friendly corporate culture

ConsStill some sorting and structuring to work out, particularly with marketing functions
Devil in details, still need to see commitment to staffing the "doer" level not just leadership and strategic hires

Advice to Senior ManagementStructure, define and communicate roles and responsibilities clealy. Make clear where working smarter is required, but staff up in operational functions that have been stretched pretty thin.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
