Proactive fun workplace, good as a first job but progression is limited. It is the people who make the job worthwhile. There are good work perks, such as activities and volunteer days.

Job Culture
This is the type of company that takes but does not reward with an unfortunate cliche culture and inadequately trained team leaders/ managers. The teams do not work well together, the office atmosphere is toxic and the one grievance I raised against a manager went unrecorded. Overtime is not paid and even though targets were met there was no reward, just a higher target set. An unfit employer.
Pros
On site parking AFTER probationary period passed.
Cons
Every aspect.

Worked as a contract resource for c 6 months. Friendly culture with good work life balance encouraged. Flexible working, contract ended earlier due to impact of CV-19. Would return to work here again.
Contract day rates are fairly average. Offered a convert to perm but he salary offered was not competitive.

I found Informa to be a well structured place to work. The workplace culture was fast-paced, but not overly so. It could be stressful at times and
support was not always as forthcoming as it should.

Informa is a great place to work, with a distinctive workplace culture. Informa Markets has a strong ethos of internal transfers, so is great for someone with international aspirations.

Huge company allows you to grow and develop your skills whilst being in a competitive environment.

Great people to learn from whilst creating so many memories, both personally and professionally.


Highly recommend working here at some point in your career.

This is a fast paced environment where you are expected to make at least 90 telephone dials a day from a rather old and outdated data bank. You can of course earn a good commission if you hit targets but the management team have been there since inception (for decades) and have failed to evolve with the times. Like an office would be in the mid 1980s..each morning starts with the same kind of motivational speech.

Management do nothing apart from set unrealistic targets, which they can't achieve themselves and sit with their headphones in. No promotion opportunities unless you social with the managements.

Informa was my second job after university. It learned so much about the legal sector while working there and I got the opportunity to go so so many events home and abroad. The commission structure was also amazing.

The spoken culture of people-first etc is mostly just words and marketing. In reality, like most companies, if a top level monetary reason arises priority is always on that and loyalty, efforts, rewards and people’s lives mean nothing to management.

The best aspect is their forward thinking regarding location and working hours flexibility. All workers are able to work from home full time/part time or work in the office/hot desk as they so desire.
Working hours are also dictated by the employee as long as contracted hours are completed between 7am-7pm each day.

Company overall were a nice company to work for but the HR department was poor and were very one sided when it came to grievances. Also had little knowledge of what was legal and not.

No absolutely not. This is nuts. You can't ask people to review their company publicly. Especially when they have a contractual requirement which specifically precludes them from doing so.

A typical day would consist of day to day Management Accounting duties working towards month end completion to tight deadlines . Dealing with queries from business users / stakeholders and vendors and Customers . Liasing with various internal departments and working in a multicultural environment to produce results of a high standard with good communications across the company. The hardest part of the job would be the strict month end deadlines but the enjoyment comes from meeting those deadlines successfully
Pros
Good social mix and ability to work remotely if needed
Cons
Additional hours over month end
