    I have been working at Clarion Events full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good transport links from majority of areas in London and beyond. Great company for school leavers. Office garden is nice in summer (but don’t be fooled by the website photos)

    Cons

    If you are competent and established within your career avoid at all costs. 150+ people are directors or heads, so don’t be fooled by the job title. Internal functions like Finance and HR are appalling. Finance regularly don’t pay suppliers on time, I haven’t worked out if this is deliberate cash flow avoidance or bad operational practice. HR have poor industry experience which reflects in the lack of governance and unity across the organisation. Technology ... expect to beg for a mobile and a laptop when you start, board level approval required.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management lack capabilities, remove the dead wood, unfortunately this will mean you will loose majority of your leadership team. All the advice and investment in the world can’t transform Stonehenge into the Shard.

    Pros

    Brilliant atmosphere, and fantastic team spirit - would highly recommend working here.

    Cons

    Needs more collaboration and networking between businesses - while everyone is great, I think teams would benefit from more structured sessions with their peers. Monthly/quarterly functions meetings at middle management to enable people to maximise skills across the company.
