Tons of opportunities--if you know the right people.

Web Production Coordinator (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Penton full-time for less than a year

ProsPenton was a great place to work right out of undergrad, because I was working with a group of people who really believed in me and wanted to help me succeed. I was given tons of opportunities to learn about new things and develop new skills.

ConsIf the right people don't like you then there are no opportunities for career advancement, regardless of your talent. Half of the people working there are amazingly smart and dedicated, and the other half are just putting in the time until they can retire.
