Pros

In this economy, it's a job. Luckily one I left behind me.

Cons

Rigid hours, uneducated Human Resources, inflexible working conditions, Director-level management openly played favorites. No programs were in place to foster inter-departmental interaction. Lots of layoffs. Some borderline illegal employee practices - i.e. giving one employee flexibility, when employees of equal standing are not given the same benefit or laying off employees with legitimate worker's comp claims. It was a dismal place to work - at least in my group.

Advice to Management

Employees need better resources, flexibility. When I was there, we had a poorly managed intranet, little information was shared with the staff including in-office Sr. Managers. The work schedule and inflexibility was terrible. I was in a meeting and another employee commented that "This used to be a good place to work"...unfortunately he was right and I hadn't worked there when it was considered good.

    I have been working at Informa full-time

    Pros

    Innovative and entrepreneurial. Lovely people who are very willing to work with new ideas. A positive culture where people respect and are kind to each other. Flexible working environment.

    Cons

    You will need the capacity to handle high levels of diverse workload to thrive here at mid to senior management levels.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of the capacity and true impact on the work force to deal with complex, multi layered change.
