Pros

There are some wonderful people at Penton and in the Overland Park office, especially, who are the main reasons it will be tough to leave Penton. Some people go out of their way to be mentors. Communication has improved. The C-level leadership is saying some of the right things.

Cons

Recognition for shared services groups is hard to come by. Despite the amount of energy expended on some endeavors, execution can be spotty. Some business decisions make you wonder about varying levels of accountability among different groups.

    Pros

    Life/work balance - that's it, period

    Cons

    No career development No leadership Unstable structure Unclear mission

    Advice to Management

    Management's response to every voluntary departure is shock and awe. Take the advice of the 100+ people who have left in the last year, instead of pretending turnover is the hallmark of a creative and progressive environment. Employees are stressed and concerned for the future, so they're going elsewhere.
