I have been working at Penton full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Has some of the most dedicated, quality-minded employees that I've ever worked with. My co-workers are friendly, collegial--people anyone would enjoy getting to know better.

Cons

Pace can be crazy-busy; goals and expectations change rapidly (though media is in a period of reinvention, so perhaps that is to be expected).

Advice to Management

Listen more to the lower-ranking employees; they have more good ideas than you might think.

    I have been working at Penton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - There is always something new evolving at Penton. There are acquisitions, dispositions, refinancing, bankruptcy, etc., but through it all the company is thriving and responds to change very well.
    - The people at Penton are wonderful to work with.
    - Overall, I think the communication has improved significantly since David Kieselstein became the CEO in Feb-12.

    Cons

    Many employees complain about the lack of a 401k match. Yes, that would be nice. Kieselstein has given us his word that he is looking into it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication that David is demonstrating. Share ideas that are working to improve our business.
