    I worked at Informa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can make an impact as the company is still developing.

    Cons

    Started to see financial strain. Hold on all replacement heads, no raises, expenses under extreme scrutiny, struggle to get paid commissions Lots if recent turn over due in part to obviously lack of investment.

    No clear strategy and initiatives not resourced properly.

    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.
