    Good Company But Too Many Changes

    Sales Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    Pros- Loyal to their employees and one is given lots of autonomy to develop their skills
    - Professional and well respected company in the events and market intelligence space
    - Exposure to high level executives is encouraged early on and international travel is supported to create proper relationships
    - Great office location in NYC- nice offices and good people in general working there

    Cons- Tend to be very quick to jump to internal consolidations and some businesses should be left to run without constantly integrating to other euromoney businesses..they have diminished a few businesses that would have otherwise run well on their own
    - be more generous in salary raises. years can go by without a raise

    Advice to Senior Management-spend a little more money on your employees
    - stop clunking businesses with other businesses that just wont work

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Euromoney Institutional Investor review

    Writer (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThere are opportunities to take on new responsibilities and develop new career skills. Fairly flexible work hours.

    ConsBig reason for opportunities is skeletal staff due to cutbacks, and you take on additional responsibilities without compensation. Also not a very sociable atmosphere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your employees and products instead of hoarding cash to acquire new companies. Penny pinching is counterproductive, long-term.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good and bad, but the bad outweighs the good by a long shot

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsSome really nice colleagues. Benefits are not bad.

    ConsWhere to start! Some really horrible people. Low pay and if you ask for a raise you'll most likely not get one. If you do, you've just also earned yourself more work and responsibilities=more stress--this is what they call rewarding you. Forget about the annual adjustment for inflation, that's non-existent here, so you're basically earning less each year.
    London is in charge and it shows with more and more Brits replacing those laid off here in the NY office. London gets the perks (more vacation days, parties, free coffee) and NY is like the unwanted step child (we have to actually pay for coffee in the kitchen).
    If you're not a Brit or in upper management, sooner or later, you're gonna get screwed. There are layoffs every spring and fall.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop forcing on British rule to US. A cookie cutter approach does not work. Start appreciating the soldiers that actually do the grunt of the work and take a deeper look at the waste in management, cut there as it needs a major overhaul.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Opportunity to Grow

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey are a leading service provider for the sectors they sell into. They provide all of the tools and training needed to succeed. The benefits are good.

    ConsThe salary is low based on how they hire only entry level positions.

    If you are on the editorial side or a woman in sales, stay away.

    Editorial (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsTravel, independence, many opportunities to learn new skills and enhance resume.

    ConsTop management are stuck in the dark ages of the British monarchy, and that trickles downward to poison the entire company culture. They do not know employees outside of upper management exist, and want nothing to do with the masses. They care about numbers and numbers alone, and have no interest in investing to improve the quality of products or the quality of life for employees. Starting salaries are borderline illegal ($30-35K US) and the only way to advance is to take on more and more work that is outside of your immediate job description to get bonuses. Eventually the workload becomes impossible and you reach a ceiling (usually just before $100K), unless they want to bring you over to the business side, which is reserved only for those (men) with whom upper management relate on a personal level (i.e. in the bar, and preferably someone they can tell lewd jokes to without repercussions). Feedback is dismissed, and HR does not advocate for employees at all. Career growth is nil on the editorial side, and long-time employees are grossly undervalued. They will tell you to your face there is no money so no raise, and then you'll find out an hour later that your male colleagues got a few grand. Annual cost of living increases are nonexistent. I could go on for pages, but the moral is - get the experience and travel for a couple of years if you like, but then get the hell out. DOCUMENT EVERYTHING while you're there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit and appoint an entirely new board and replace most group publishers. Include more than one or two token females so you're not driven into the ground by behind-the-scenes settlements. Listen to people outside the circle of male trust. Promote and value women.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Applicants beware

    Marketing Campaigns Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsNo one really cares that you drink at lunch. Most of senior management would brag of their hangovers on a daily basis.

    Cons- Reports, Reports, Reports
    - Management's idea of creativity is moving numbers from one column to the other
    - No digital innovation. They're scared of spending money, therefore Bloomberg is shredding them in competition.
    - If your ideas are better than management's either of these 2 things will happen:
       - They will disregard your ideas and then laugh about it over "pints at the pub"
       - You will get fired or pushed out
    - Very clicky among management
    - It has been at a steady decline since the financial meltdown.
    - They operate a very lean workforce.
    - If you're in marketing get ready to handle 3-5 publications.
    - If you're in editorial, get ready to be the digital strategist, writer, copywriter and associate marketing manager
    - If you're in sales, you will sit all day and make 100s of phone calls
    - If you're in development (haha it hardly exists)

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhat's the point. They will never listen

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good people, poor management - cheap

    Sales (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsFun interesting colleagues with a good peer work environment. Relaxed.

    ConsConstant changes in structure, products and with sales/commision targets.

    Cheap; tatty offices, no willingness to spend to improve products/services, poor compensation.

    No organic growth, only grow through acquisitions.

    Everything is run from London.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time+money improving the products you have rather than just cutting costs and hasing new firms.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fast paced and they will stretch you...

    (Current Employee)

    ProsMost people are nice and that matters a lot but still it does not hide how the company really is. Good for interns as you may learn a lot but be prepared to work hard and learn quickly. They have a culture to throw you at the deep end right away (this applies to everyone not just interns) and see if you swim or sink. This urgency is probably driven by the need to get everything done now.

    ConsLong hours and stressful. Actions seem to be driven by short-term needs. Poor communication from the management level. Poor systems to work with. Very money-focused.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow a little care to your staff and demonstrate you actually have some long term goals may bring surprisingly positive benefits to the company and your wallet.
