    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.

    "Marketing"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

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

    Pros

    I'm always surrounded by some very smart people and I have infinite opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    The UK headquarters have a massive bureaucratic structure that makes it very hard to react to market opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Give the separate branches more of an opportunity to make autonomous decisions on time critical issues.
