    Pros

    I worked at WBR for 4 years. It was one of the most rewarding positions I've ever held.
    - Company culture - The company hires smart people, invests in training and is constantly trying to innovate.
    Low turnover - In the four years I was there, only 1 person quit. No one leaves because it is a great place to work.
    - High earnings potential
    - Interesting products - Learn about many different industries and be connected to very senior level people
    Good management - Management empowers employees to do their jobs and try new things. There is an open door policy so all levels have access to managers.

    Cons

    - Career mobility - because of the low turnover, promotions can be slow. However, people do get promoted (new job roles are created to keep good employees advancing).

    - Business Model - The conference and media industries are challenging. Companies are spending less on travel and training and the media landscape is very competitive.

    - Deadlines - The nature of the business is fast paced and managing deadlines can be stressful. I sometimes worked what I thought were long hours at the time 8:30-7.

  6. Do NOT do business with this company.

    Pros

    They do a great job "preparing" for the event you're sponsoring.

    Cons

    They are only working with you to take your money. Follow-up after an event is underwhelming, because they company has already received your funds, so why should they care about assisting you after an event?

    Advice to Management

    Businesses do business with your company to generate revenue. If you don't help with follow-up, you're failing your clients. Extremely disappointed.

  7. Great company, people and culture

    Pros

    Fantastic and fun company to work for. People are intelligent and unlike other conference companies, management doesn't micro manage

    Cons

    As with the nature of the industry, hard for serious long term growth potential...
