    I have been working at Informa full-time

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with and for, flexible schedules, feel appreciated, enough work to keep busy but not overwhelmed constantly, exposure to wide view of accounting and financials, international accounting experience, casual Friday's and often additional casual days during the month, quarterly bonuses offered

    Cons

    Work some holidays such as Labor Day or Fourth of July due to timing of the day and publicly traded/headquartered in London; however holidays worked can be redeemed for another day

    Show great appreciation for additional hours put in for month end and year end close periods.

    I have been working at Informa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very skilled and knowledgeable management that are not afraid of change. Some of the best services/products on the market which makes the job much easier. Growth opportunities are based on skill/results rather than age and experience, better put "the best man/woman for the job." Friendly and tight knit staff/environment.

    Cons

    Past UK focus gave impression of a ceiling to growth. No longer the cas

    Advice to Management

    Continue to cultivate potential from within. Good people are hard to come by.

    Pros

    Abundance of paid time off. Management fosters growth and learning and shows appreciation. Annual excellence awards give everyone an opportunity to be awarded for their hard work and dedication. A great place to start your career - very well known and respected company.

    Cons

    Rigid schedule - usually need to take lunch break at exactly 12:00. Not a lot of opportunity for advancement. Pay scale is lower than average. Offices across the globe suffer from the silo effect.


  10. it was a nice place to work for but management leaves a lot to be desired.

    Pros

    laid back atmosphere, good environment, good social life, friday afternoon off in August, dress down fridays. the move you around the office each year and it's good to work with other departments.

    Cons

    no career progression, no respect for delegate sales, incompetent management. there's no hope of advancement. constant comparision to IRR, very unsupportive manager. they don't recognise achievements of individuals and they don't develop their staff.

    Advice to Management

    take notice of lazy managers who just can't be bothered to manage their team. Also it's not wise to have Marketing directors manage sales teams. Sponsorship sales people seem to be very ineffective whilst telesales people work hard and get no credit.
