    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at UBM full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful office. Flexible hours. Generally nice people. Good benefits package.

    Cons

    Air is thick with negative energy. Practically no room for professional growth. Unreasonable layoffs - company cares more for revenue than its staff. Decisions made create the worst customer experience and then they wonder why the clients complain and don't return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than constantly making reactionary decisions, try thoughtfully creating a plan and sticking to it. Own up to your mistakes. Reward the employees that are knowledgeable and hard-working, not the phonies.

    Current Employee - Contributor in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at UBM part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Telecommute policy
    sometimes you can work on interesting topics and get good feedback when the editors are not on the way out the door
    It was a good place a few years ago, but

    Cons

    Once they started spinning out more and more boards, they lost focus and direction.
    There are many signs that the company is falling apart despite their efforts to keep everything hush-hush.
    Morale drops when people sense that things are not going well and there is no honest communication about it.
    Some good people have left while incompetent people stay on because of entrenched cronyism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't keep your people in the dark and get rid of those people who are really not competent at their jobs.
