I worked at Penton full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Super casual environment: dogs at your desk, shorts and sandals, beer fridge, slide, lakeside patio.

Cons

Innate sense of when am I going to be next in line for layoffs. Waste of talented folks. Sales seems to be the only folks getting any attention from managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Kieselstein seems to be a step in the right direction. I just didn't want to wait around to find out.

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

    I have been working at Penton full-time for 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.
