    I have been working at Worldwide Business Research full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    After more than 10 years in the conference industry, I have found that WBR has by far the best employee culture. It's a collaborative, friendly environment where you can tell that everyone is motivated to grow the business and continuously improve. On the whole, morale is very good, which is so important if you are looking to be anywhere for an extended period of time. It's a challenging job, but also fun, and I am able to maintain a good work/life balance. There is a lot of potential to make money as you grow events.

    Cons

    This is not a con for me, but you do travel quite a bit with the job, which can be difficult for some people, especially if you have kids at home. You often leave on Saturdays or Sundays to run events, so the schedule is not for everyone. As a producer, you usually don't go to more than 4 events a year, so it's pretty manageable.

    Pros

    I've been in the event production industry for 13 years for a multitude of companies, and I can say hands down, this is the best place I've worked. You can hone your research, content development and skills in a very collaborative and supporting environment. You're encouraged to be creative, think on your own, and be productive without having someone constantly looking over your shoulder.

    Cons

    The office is a bit run down and the technology/IT system is very outdated, but that's really about it.

    Pros

    Great place for career development,. You're put on a path from the moment you arrive. Work hard, play hard mentality - lots of chance to mingle internally and meet different team members, departments etc at social events. Very friendly and inspiring management team compared to other places I've worked at!

    Cons

    The air conditioning can be painful! :-)
