      Pros

      there are very few pros to working for T&F, to the point where I struggle to think of *any* short of the people you work alongside are often good, decent people - hardly a selling point when that's true of everywhere I've worked.

      Cons

      Exploitative business practices, poor working conditions, horrific workloads, high employee turnover due to inadequate approaches to mental health and employee morale, real terms pay-cuts due to inflation year on year (this has recently changed, but is reflective of the company's approach to staff compensation), derisory and patronising approach to complaints by LGTBQ+ staff, an utterly laughable attitude to diversity and inclusion, upper management didn't seem to actually do anything?

      Pros

      Always stays current with events to maintain staff well being Handled COVID19 incredibly Flexible working Really friendly teams throughout the various sectors Lots of opportunity to develop, progress and grow Many company benefits as a part of the Informa business

      Cons

      Due to COVID there has been a recruitment freeze which is now lifting however this has meant that many staff have felt overworked due to continuous company executive directives being made throughout the pandemic. Hopefully this is felt less now that we are recruiting again.
