I have been working at Penton full-time

Pros

Some really amazingly talented people, hard working people.

Cons

Workload can be very overwhelming, sexist senior management, no career development the performance goals are insignificant. It's way too white. There is a notable absence of diversity. Get rid of the "clubs" in management, when the same people are making all the decisions for years, the focus is very narrow-minded and not open to new ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to take a look at the good old boys club. Need to think digitally and behave digitally. Print is dying.

    It's been a bit of a wild-ride, but overall rewarding.

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

    Pros

    Has some of the most dedicated, quality-minded employees that I've ever worked with. My co-workers are friendly, collegial--people anyone would enjoy getting to know better.

    Cons

    Pace can be crazy-busy; goals and expectations change rapidly (though media is in a period of reinvention, so perhaps that is to be expected).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the lower-ranking employees; they have more good ideas than you might think.
