    I have been working at Informa full-time

    Pros

    We all work well together and consider each other friends above coworkers. We get plenty of PTO and sick time, as well as great benefits. Everyone has access to the office gym, the coffee is fresh and free and there's covered parking for the veteran employees.

    Cons

    Our office was recently acquired by Informa so we're in an awkward stage of becoming "one" across the offices worldwide. While the umbrella effect is helpful to some offices, many of our office employees feel handicapped by the corporate approach.

    Advice to Management

    One size does not fit all. For the sake of simplicity, I understand the desire for everyone to use the same applications and procedures, but if you have a winning greyhound, you don't amputate one of it's legs so the rest of the pack can catch up.

    I worked at Informa full-time

    Pros

    The company has grown a lot over the last 20 years. Has a strong global network. Lots of opportunities within the company and offers competitive benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management turnover over the last few years has changed the direction of the company's strategy. Seemed like the last group of managers had it right, time will tell if the new group will have the same success.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the lead of your predecessors.

  9. "Marketing"

    Pros

    My team was excellent and offered great work/life balance. Fun workplace and content. My team was allowed to track OT and take it as lieu time.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay. Certain teams (like FAN EXPO) are assigned multiple shows and work like crazy and are not allowed to track their OT and take lieu days and it's hard to see really hard-working, dedicated people being taken advantage of. The management of that show also regularly walks a thin line between what is ethical and what is not.

    Few opportunities for career advancement or upward movement. A completely useless HR department which was unable to provide any HR support to the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Make people feel supported and provide them with opportunities to have a future at Informa.
