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

Pros

- There is always something new evolving at Penton. There are acquisitions, dispositions, refinancing, bankruptcy, etc., but through it all the company is thriving and responds to change very well.
- The people at Penton are wonderful to work with.
- Overall, I think the communication has improved significantly since David Kieselstein became the CEO in Feb-12.

Cons

Many employees complain about the lack of a 401k match. Yes, that would be nice. Kieselstein has given us his word that he is looking into it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the communication that David is demonstrating. Share ideas that are working to improve our business.
