      Pros

      1. Supportive industry professionals within department who have been with the company for many years. Great team - was a blast working with the other drafters. 2. Managers that, although particular, they truly care for the well-being and growth of their team. I really felt like they were on my side and appreciated my efforts. I am so proud to have worked here. 3. Great place to start career in unique field. 4. Corporate Challenge!

      Cons

      1. Recent pandemic layoff (hard to support department with so few shows right now) 2. Minimum pay for drafter position - good enough pay for the time I was there but saw myself moving on to another department later on.

      Pros

      You get to learn a ton about the convention, tradeshow, and expo space of the events industry.

      Cons

      The pay does not equate to the amount of work and time needed to put it into a show. Work/life balance is bad. Very old-school office environment. The processes made to do perform the job are built for upper management to micro-manage your work.

      Work Environment needs Improvement

      Pros

      I loved working in the industry and working with the labor union members. The company provided lots of perks and took care of their employees when they traveled.

      Cons

      The work environment was like being in high school. I experienced bullying, harassment, and resentment from coworkers for simply doing my job well. Aside from this, yearly raises are dependent on peer reviews which means if you are the victim of bullying and coworker resentment, you don't stand a chance increasing your hourly wage.

      Overall great place to work if you're comfortable with long hours from time to time

      Pros

      Flexible on work schedules during slow times, most coworkers are very friendly and I did get a sense of teamwork here more than any other job. I held two roles, depending on your position you can have quite a bit of freedom. I liked the independence I had to get my work done.

      Cons

      Can be very stressful and high paced work environment. Be prepared for 12+ hour shifts on larger shows, especially during move out. Management is different per position, though if you are in the sales area either in office or on site at shows they can be overbearing. The jobs here can be very demanding particularly in a position where you are at show site, the only good thing about this is that most employees are hourly so you can make overtime on those busier shows.
