Temporary Project
Document Control Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 4, 2017
This was a field project at O'Hare and I knew it would end someday so although I met a lot of great people and learned a lot, it was temporary and needed to find something permanent.

Great colleagues, lack of good middle/show management
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 25, 2017
UBM is filled with great people who love what they do. But, there's a TON of turnover - particularly in the marketing department - which leaves everyone who stays there just scrambling to stay on track. People without leadership skills or experience are put in positions WAY higher than they should be, leaving the junior and mid-level staff without the support, mentoring and growth they need.
Pros
Great colleagues, flexible work from home policy, good pay
Cons
High turnover, management lacks experience

Financial Business Partner (Current Employee) –  Lenexa, KSMarch 27, 2017
The company is going through a growth phase. There have been many frustrations integrating companies and Brands, but ultimately there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel as the company is establishing itself as a top tier trade show company.
Pros
Time off to Volunteer
Cons
Increased workload doesn't leave time to Volunteer

Trash
Janitorial Worker (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXMarch 26, 2017
The company is trash and very unorganized. It was a very easy job but coworkers complained about a lot of little things. It was a cool job but i just wish they were a better organized company.

High turn over and constant strategic shifts from head office in London
Content Manager (Current Employee) –  Santa Monica, CAFebruary 12, 2017
Generally not a bad company to work for, but really important that employees advocate for their career path and salary in this company, as many employees are subject to strategic shifts set forth by corporate office in London and aren't consulted about the impact on their job titles, scope, pay, reporting structure, etc.

If you take a job with UBM, be sure to be clear about your expectations for the role you take and your development goals/expectations, otherwise they'll take advantage of you and shuffle you around like a pawn on a chess board, depending on their current corporate strategy--which is regularly evolving, therefore is your role and tenure there.
Pros
Travel to other cities for events
Cons
Not known for competitive compenstation

Ubm
Purchasing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Manhasset, NYAugust 14, 2016
My time at UBM was an exciting but mostly rewarding experience. Fortunately, my time there allowed for numerous opportunities to grow as an employee from interacting with vendors, to learning new programs to managing how to handle and resolve daily issues externally and internally. Though the workload was tremendous on a daily basis I left feeling accomplished and more confident.
Pros
Casual environment, friendly atmosphere
Cons
Management wasn't always fair

Interesting jobs and people
Executive Site Assistant/Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 22, 2014
This was a general construction contracting company that worked on several renovation and expansion jobs in Chicago area. I learned a lot about bidding process, construction contracts and the hard work that goes into construction. The hardest part of the job is when the projects end and its contracted work so its on a job to job basis. The most fun part was seeing how nothing becomes something beautiful.
Pros
Working at the construction site and seeing the stages of progress
Cons
The down time if there not another project to work on.

Very responsible and pruductive
Janitor/Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAAugust 16, 2013
A typical day at work would be being in charge of seven other persons and making sure they do their job right. What I learn about this job is that it takes a lot of effort to be in charge of other persons, but with the good knowledge and attitude you can accomplish anything. The hardest thing about my job was that it was a night-shift. Over all I did enjoy my job.
Pros
good healthcare
Cons
night shift
