Sales Director (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London31 July 2018
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.

Productive workdays with a diverse cross section of employees
Finance Manger (Current Employee) –  Colchester29 March 2018
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

Big company with lots of different business units
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London21 March 2018
Simply a really large company that had inorganically grown by acquiring different products and services.

The problem it has while I was there was bringing all these products into a central strategy to promote organic growth. Since then, the company has sold some of it's fringe products and should, by now, be in a more harmonious position.


There's some excellent experience in management there and I really enjoyed flexible working conditions while there. I personally benefited form the experience working there having joined as a (lowly) customer service executive I was mentored by some great people and eventually left as an Account Manager.

Informa also has informal social events.

Ideal for 2nd/3rd jobber in London.

I worked there
Advertising Manager (Former Employee) –  London1 February 2018
If you take a role at Informa then get everything you can out of it. If you can play the politics then you will be fine. If you can't it will be an unpleasant place to work.
Pros
travel
Cons
politics

Nice company but low pay
N/a (Current Employee) –  London8 August 2017
Low pay but good work/life balance. I wouldn't recommend if you are trying to advance in your career.
There are no annual pay reviews and when the salary conversation comes around, there is never budget for it

It was a very good company to work for
Delegate Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Warren Street Station14 June 2017
Great opportunity to earn and its a very varied job, changing product and changing client base was really fun. you also get full autonomy,
Come in the morning structure your own workload and divide your day the way you want. And dial dial dial . targets of 100 dials and 2hrs call time per day, and sales are done by massive amounts of follow up and pushing for close.

Management is exquizite and very uunderstanding.

Quite a cold culture however, friendliness is softly discouraged and teamwork is a myth in this giant company.
Pros
excellent commision pay
Cons
complicated commission formula

Thoroughly enjoyable workplace and good people.
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  West Byfleet4 January 2017
Main role of the job was to ensure customers got their conference documentation on time. There was also a lot of sales order processing and responding to queries/complaints. A big part was working with print companies to ensure they meet their deadlines.

When I first started there was a high level of complaints, but I didn't feel I had the time to resolve everything. In the end I devised several spreadsheets, so that I could check on status of complaints and queries ensuring customer was kept up to date on how their request was being handled and it meant nothing was forgotten in the process.
Pros
Good working environment.
Cons
Salary was low in line with job expectation.
