Administrative Assistant/Office Manager (Former Employee) – West Chester, OH – July 6, 2018
Fast paced environment, must be able to work independently very quickly. Challenging but educational to navigate on your own to make connections with other Informa departments; external customers locally and internationally in order to collaborate or complete tasks. There are some very helpful people, just hard to find them in a timely manner. Enjoyed the local team, unfortunately position was eliminated due to organizational restructuring - lasted only 22 months.
Position elimination, no help in remaining with the company, no clear path for advancement.
Business Development Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 18, 2018
Very repetitive, monotonous and dull did not feel like my career was going anywhere after enta there for year. And next steps for career advancement are similar to where I am just managing some accounts but same idea as what I’m doing now.
Not many free lunches, free fruit twice a week and pantry has coffee and teas
Stressful micromanaging, lack of training and proper management, rushed to just cold call
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 8, 2018
Selfish management and their cronies.keep away from this company.no growth and development. “Skill goes unrecognized, focus is on making the right friends.Frustrating work environment that could be so much better!!
Manager (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – February 2, 2018
The Boulder Colorado Informa Office (New Hope) was a great place to work. The work / life balance, collaborative atmosphere, and overall good vibes that came from working here was really one of a kind. I was able to work across the company with different groups and together we were able to drive digital strategy and at the same time be response and flexible as needed.
work life balance, team work, good managers, encouragement
Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 29, 2017
This company spent almost no time to train me on essential programs and job tasks. I was frequently told I would have to train myself. Communication is a nightmare. It took 4 months to have access to all the programs that I needed to do my job and I was constantly having issues with my computer. Job role was poorly defined. I was isolated most of the time I was there, at one point going 2 weeks without seeing another coworker.
Support Staff (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 20, 2017
If you like indentured servitude, this is the place for you. They discontinued BOTH merit raises and cost-of-living increases without telling the employees. No support for career development either. Generally a friendly environment, but management is so hands off and unconcerned with employees' welfare that it might as well be be non-existent.
Poor decisions, bad moves and typical conglomerate ignorance
Digital (Current Employee) – NY – October 26, 2017
I worked for a large media company for many years that got acquired by informa. It all went downhill once informa came on board. Their lack of knowledge in the media, advertising space is criminal and impacted a lot of very poor calls and decisions made by executives on the other side of the world looking at nothing but spreadsheets and made decisions that resulted in a lot of very unhappy employees.
Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 26, 2017
The company is very dysfunctional and management doesn't know how to grow its employees. Technology is very bad. Teams are spread out all over the place and it's not a collaborative working environment. Honestly it's the worst place I ever worked, ever. To be avoided at all costs.
Business Analyst / AEM Developer (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – April 11, 2017
Was able to learn new things and tools. Use to work extra hours. Too many new managers with different ideas how to grow and sustain business. They don't see value in long term staff, only want to make changes whether good or bad. Clients will suffer with call center environment.
