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

    Pros

    A great environment
    A team of people who actually care about what they do
    Creative freedom - have an idea? Speak up!
    I enjoy going to work in the morning. Makes a change!

    Cons

    I am yet to find some cons, for me the company is a great fit because I have previously worked in some really corporate companies, I feel Clarion has the perfect work balance. Nothing is perfect, and I am sure there will be little things, but for the most part - It is a Pretty fantastic place to be.

    I worked at Clarion Events full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A big company with a small company mentality. There is the potential to develop professionally as long as you are driven and focused.

    Cons

    Very little training opportunities available. The HR team offered little support and were very disengaged from the workforce. The pay is not in line with the rest of the industry and bonus plans are ineffective.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Clarion Events full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing people, accessible, honest and open leadership team. Growing business with plenty of opportunities to progress if you are willing to work hard. I have worked for a number of events organizers and I have never found a company that is more welcoming, supportive and fun.

    Cons

    Hours can be long and it is a 24/7 business but if you want to work in international events that is kind of expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the family feel and the company assemblies in the pub as you grow. The accessibility of senior managers in a business this size is what makes this company awesome.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and colleagues
    relaxed and open management style.

    Cons

    very little career opportunity to progress

    Advice to Management

    recognise the pool of talent available and move them to mid / senior management

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    - Free gym
    - In hindsight, the London office is in a decent location
    - Lots of opportunity travel (although this seems to be to the detriment of the business as a whole)

    Cons

    - Very few people worthwhile learning from.
    - Large, faceless business.
    - On the whole, middle management weren't up to their jobs. People who graduated with degrees from places you didn't realise were actually universities and with a general lack of worldliness.
    - The fractured nature of the business (through acquiring companies rather than developing products) means you are always at a disadvantages to leaner competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management need to be respected. Particularly among oil and gas, there are very few managers with the knowledge or the people skills.
