      I worked at IIR USA full-time

      Pros

      Good location. Great team. Had a focus on putting enough time into the events to get them right. Had the week between xmas and new year's as a bonus week off. Competitive salary and at the time, generous profit share.

      Cons

      Terrible management. Rotating managers constantly. No company culture. No feeling that they cared if a person stayed or went. No opportunity for promotion.

      Advice to Management

      Come up with a career path for your employees and a real review system. Put investment into fostering a team mentality across all the portfolios.

      I worked at IIR USA full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      A few great, smart people scattered among the office.The work-life balance is pretty good. The travel can be a nice perk, particularly internationally.

      Cons

      What a disappointment. When I started at IIR, it was a great company, populated by energetic young people who appeared to be experts in the conference field. Then... MDs started dropping like flies, across all divisions. Uncertainty blossomed like a cancer, leading to what felt like total paralysis. Then, some marquee events began dipping in performance, due to new competitors -- some competitors had even worked at IIR...

      Advice to Management

      Pare down. Focus on a few great events. Do not task producers with creating new events. Hire a separate business development arm to conduct that type of feasibility research, since sponsors are key.

        I worked at IIR USA

        Pros

        Office closure between Christmas Eve and New Year's, summer Fridays, good experience for entry level positions, travel to other cities and countries, generous amount of PTO

        Cons

        Honestly, where to begin...the main issue is simply that this company does not value its employees. With the exodus of smart, talented people that has been going on lately, one would think someone would wake up and realize a change has to be made. However, it seems that upper management simply does not care about all the people they have lost as nothing has changed. Unattainable goals, unimpressive performance reviews...

        Advice to Management

        Read the writing on the wall (or on here for that matter). When the best thing about working for a company is the time spent outside the office instead of inside, there's a problem. Take the time to actually listen and understand what motivates employees and makes them feel valued. This model of having the majority of your staff underpaid, underappreciated, and overworked isn't sustainable. If nothing changes, don't be...
