    I have been working at Informa full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Very flexible
    Accommodating
    Cares about employee satisfaction

    Cons

    Too much reorganization
    No ability to really know coworkers
    Too many cubicles
    Growing too fast

    Advice to Management

    There is so much growth that it’s basically always a reorganization effort and a constant state of disarray. Growth is great but maybe some things can either be more transparent or at least more planned out before implementation.

    I worked at Informa full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Of all the conference companies around, this is one of the better ones. They don’t waste time on small events that don’t make money. They’re good at identify products that have potential, and focusing their energy on those opportunities.

    Cons

    Compensation structure has changed significantly in recent years. No longer anywhere near as profitable to employees as it used to be.

    I have been working at Informa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid time off is ok.

    Cons

    Company is too busy acquiring other companies and won’t pay their current ones what they’re worth. No culture. Boring. The morale of the entire office is down. No one looks forward to being their. No room to grow. If you want to grow, they don’t even give opportunities to learn except their lunch and learn (you brown bag your lunch - it’s not provided) which is knowledge that everyone should be taught when they’re hired on.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees, work life balance and setting an example as a leader. Start paying your employees so they can survive and not have to work more than one job. Stop the favoritism.

    Pros

    The office is nice, the people are fun

    Cons

    Communication across departments is abysmal. A lot of people don't even understand what the company does.
