    Pros

    Casual work environment. Balance between work and personal life.

    Cons

    Advanstar does not give good raises. Very very low for some of the best performers. Advanstar does not cherish their employees. Its about the numbers not the people behind the numbers. Advanstar has no room for advancement and frowns upon individuals who request more.

    Advice to Management

    Advanstar needs to pay more attention to its employees. If Advanstar made it a point to make room for advancement and reward their employees with bonuses and salary raises productivity may improve. However, I feel Advanstar is clearly taking advantage of the current recession. You can see this with how they pay their employees and how they pay their vendors. As slow and as little as possible in order to make the bottom line more bigger.

  2. Change for Change sake

    Pros

    Work Life balance is generally good. Office is bright and clean. People are generally nice to work with and are passionate about the products they work on.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from leadership/senior management. Lack of a mission. Always fearful your position/job is in jeopardy. Constant use of permanent temps covering for those who have left for more secure employment.

    Advice to Management

    more communication about the mission and a better sense about job security would enable more creativity and risk taking.
