    Pros

    This company has a good laid back environment which enables a good quality of life. People are easy to approach with questions in other departments. Good benefits

    Cons

    The company needs to invest more in their product. All of the Ideas are there but they need to put more money into developing the product to keep up with competitors.

    Advice to Management

    They need to listen to what the market wants. The company has alot of history but needs to take all that market experience and apply it to the needs of today.

    Pros

    Casual dress. Fun staff. Good parking. Bridgette is awesome to work for. Great leader. Lori is nice too. I'm not happy here.

    Cons

    Pay sucks. Employees are treated like dirt. Heard old president was fired after 30 years and everything went to crap after that.

    Advice to Management

    Start your own company without the corporate BS!

    I have been working at Informa full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to build a resume. Will work on a wide range of projects.
    Nice people in Memphis.

    Cons

    Switching to a computer based system that devalues the analysts.
    People making the major decisions are located in London and have a new vision for the company. Very honest about not caring if you like the work environment and believes the employees are overpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Does not matter. In two to three years either the company will be transformed or spun off.
    Bruce Scherr was removed and Tom Scott is now the CEO. A yes man to London.

    Pros

    Good benefits, relaxed atmosphere at least locally, nice people.

    Cons

    Starting to be controlled by Corporate office with no local control. No pay increases, (cost of living or merit) the product is starting to get old and stale. Not much opportunity for promotion. Wonder how long we will be here for.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to local staff and not try and run this place from London. Respect the staff and invest in the company.

    Pros

    good people, plenty of autonomy

    Cons

    compensation plan changes every year, constant restructuring from above, too much attrition with analysts

    Advice to Management

    Management focuses on other parts of the Informa business such as the pharma products. Either invest into the other logos, or sell them off.

    Identify your goals, and determine the resources needed to achieve them.
    Get to know each individual's needs, and find out what drives them.
