    I have been working at Reed Exhibitions USA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Recognize ability and promote from within. Smart leadership as it relates to the big picture

    Cons

    Good and smart people at leadership level, but the amount of internal politics at the Sr Mgmt level is unusual. None of them trust each other it seems. Performance trumps character.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand you can move on from disruptive sr leaders who treat people poorly, and bring in (or retain) those who deliver AND treat your employees well. If you don't, your staff will eventually let you know one way or another.

    I worked at Reed Exhibitions USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very clear about expectations and offered good support tools like call management systems. Enjoyed working the shows.

    Cons

    Exceeded sales goals first year but was transferred to an adminstrative job because a more senior employee needed a job after they sold the show she worked on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize those that exceeded their sales goals instead of demoting them for political reasons.
