    Total waste of 4 years

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work from home - this is about it

    Cons

    0 progression, 0 salary increases, 0 help, 0 development, 0 training, 0 reasons to join Worked for 4 years in a small team, no change in job or progression, goal posts constantly moving, pay rises for some but not others. Thoroughly unpleasant place to work which will suck the life out of you. This many people leaving negative reviews can't all be wrong.

    Terrible management

    Jul 1, 2021 - Research Analyst in London, England, England

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Interesting clients Talented analysts and sales teams

    Cons

    Poor management Lazy people No longer focussed on research clients Multiple management levels with very little power and poor management skills. There’s no clear direction in place, everyone seems to be doing nothing and have no control or oversight. Research managers and directors can be insecure bullies who do not focus on employee development but their own status only and spend time belittling all those around them and passing blame on to others. You walk by areas in the office where managers are screaming at their team. Attrition rates are shocking as the most talented have exited this sinking ship. Analysts left in the business are those that have a self inflated view of themselves yet lack ambition, or just waiting to be made redundant.

    Pros

    Opportunity to travel, good colleagues, reasonable pay once you have been there for a few years and excellent central London location

    Cons

    Short-term strategy, ineffective management, little consideration to employee rewards, pay rises almost entirely offered when notice handed in as opposed for reward for good work, promotions offered to those who have been there the longest not those who produce the best work, no idea about digital, jump on buzzwords as opposed to consider long-term trends, a lot of in jokes and cliques, no idea how to evolve past digital events - current approach to digital looks ridiculous

    Great People but....

    Pros

    People: It is a very large company and therefore so many people at different stages of their life. So there is someone for everyone and that makes working here easy Pay: If things are going well, you get paid. not as much as the old set up but salaries can increase. Career progression: If you are liked, you will progress rapidly. Autonomy: only in some divisions I will add. other divisions and positions are very strictly managed, with no room for autonomy. Learning the rope: as a huge company there was time to learn the ropes. however this is also a bad thing.

    Cons

    People: So many small groups and for this it makes the company feel impenetrable sometimes. The best thing i can compare it to is like being on London underground, so many people around you but you feel alone. Pay: This is only good when things are going well. remember this is an events company review, so I dont have to go into detail about how your pay will look if you get a bad performing event. because the pay structure changed you are not earning as much anymore which makes the above even worse for your wallet. Career progression: As I said - IF YOU ARE LIKED. if not this can be a very hard company to progress in. You will feel like people just want you out the door or to stay in the same position. Autonomy: If you are not in the right division, with the right manager, right people - There is no autonomy. I saw most people work, work, work - the conversations were so eerily similar you could not tell if they were on the phone to a person or voicemail Learning the ropes: There is no training just learn on the job and lets listen back to your call and critique how bad/good you were. This doesn't leave much growth in peoples abilities. Therefore there always seems to be some sort of stagnation especially in under performing teams.

    Omdia - going downhill since the merger

    Nov 4, 2020 - Business Analyst in London, England, England

    Pros

    Work from home Talented analysts from their pre-merger structures (Ovum, IHS Markit)

    Cons

    If working in a non UK or US office, good luck getting any HR / financial / actual support... Seriously disorganized, are support services talking to one another ? Firing brilliant talent and illogical restructuring following the merger of other analyst companies, further aggravated since Covid Why are informa tech employees located in the same country not treated the same as other branches such as Taylor and Francis, Informa intelligence....? Not working on building the Omdia brand The merger could have been dealt with way more professionally, now many fear their job will be eliminated anytime soon. Some benefits were lost due to merger

    Avoid if you want an exciting place to work

    Pros

    Office spaces are nice to work from

    Cons

    No progression in company and no clarity on roles. So many different titles but responsibilities and experience varies. Promotions are based on tenure only so we lose valuable employees or see a lack of morale. Really takes advantage of hard work and dedication. No recognition for people of colour, don’t even dare to raise issues or ask for help. We’re meant to be grateful with no goals or determination.

    Pros

    * Great people across teams, for the most part every one is friendly and amicable. * Possibility to be fully WFH (Some stipend provided for this to buy furniture , monitors, etc) * Younger teams depending on where you sit, which leads to a fun culture Pre-Covid. * Really good work life balance

    Cons

    * Raises are hard to come by and pay and can be low compared to other big companies * Lots of turnover recently * Lots of recent layoffs / restructuring due to COVID - 19 * Insurance cost from employee is expensive, benefits are okay * Bloated management, too many people who don't really do anything
