Working from home is a bonus but that's about it.
The two inviduals heading up the AI & IoT marketing team have set up a toxic working environment. All feedback is negative, none of it is constructive. It has led to everyone in their team not being able to take any initiative and has beaten any away any creativity. As a result, the scope for personal growth and development is non-existent. The sales teams constantly bombard the marketing team to send out GDPR non-compliant emails to boost their leads. To top this off, the team is structured in a way that it is constantly under resourced. All these negatives mean that the tenure is no more that a year so no direction is able to be built. When I left, there was no thank you, or so much as a card after 3+ years of working there showing a complete lack of respect and regard for their team members. The bonus is a carrot to get you through the door but the targets are so high you're lucky to get any bonuses.4Informa Tech Response8mo
Thank you so much for sharing how you feel. It’s good to hear you enjoyed our flexible working policy which is available to all colleagues. Thank you also for bringing the email issue to our attention. We take our privacy responsibilities seriously and have raised this with our internal Privacy Team to investigate. We want all colleagues to feel in control of their career growth at Informa Tech by offering dedicated training, career development programmes and further qualifications in their area of specialism. We also do encourage internal mobility and the opportunity for colleagues to grow their careers here in different teams and locations. We do understand that individuals’ experience might vary, so thank you again for sharing your personal experience as we continually look for ways to improve. We wish you all the best in the future. Best Wishes, Ruth Ovens Chief People Officer – Informa Tech

Everyone is super friendly, very few toxic people. Manageable work load and in off season very little to do.
Poor money and no opportunity for progression. No Senior specialist. Deny opportunity for promotion even if acknowledged that you are at that level. Flat heirachy. Low level customer success. More customer support then success. If you want an easy life and money and career doesn't fuss you then would recommend if not would search elsewhere.1Informa Tech Response4mo

My line manager, senior colleague and colleagues from the research analysts team. Good bunch of people but not all!
Ridiculous low pay, HR not being fair and transparent. People leaving the business because they are not treated fairly. This organisation is a joke and if you expect a salary increase hold tight onto your chair, bear in mind their status quo pretends to be as caring and treating fairly to its employees which is a whole lie.3Informa Tech Response10mo
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We understand this is not always an easy step to take and we’re grateful that you’ve shared your experience.

We care deeply about our teams and their ability to work in synergy so, we’re delighted to hear that you enjoy working with your colleagues. We would love to hear more about your experience to understand the issues that are causing discomfort. Informa Tech, as part of Informa, has recently been voted a Most Loved Workplace, however we’re constantly on a journey towards improvement: having more details will be helpful. If it feels right, would you be able to get in touch with me for a fully confidential conversation? Similarly, if you feel more appropriate, your line manager can also raise these issues with me.

Good social scene, always people in the office, friendly environment. My manager is very nice and I have regular contact with more senior staff.
Hard to find the right person when you have a question. The internal website is a bit of a mess and the company is so big it's difficult to find the information that actually applies to you. Also the slowest website in the universe.
