    I have been working at i2i Events full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Even on a short term contract role, opportunities are endless; the company doesn't release talent. - Hard working, enthusiastic, innovative employees, are rewarded accordingly; there's an amazing benefits scheme. - i2i Groups events are the leaders in each of the sectors they serve; therefore excellence in everything we do is expected, and you have a real sense of pride in your work.

    Cons

    - Don't bother applying if you aren't 100% committed; it's quite a fast paced environment, and it can be very much sink or swim.

    Thanks for your review. We are pleased you feel that the benefits package we offer across TRG is great and competitive. Retention of talented employees is an area that we are really focusing on this year and we will be launching initiatives around this

    I have been working at i2i Events full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    i2i Events delivers endless opportunitiies and a platform to develop your skills. The training is personal and tailored to individual's needs and strengths; no rule books used and the outlook of the training is focused on how to craft your skills rather than what you do wrong. The overall outlook of i2i Events is positivity; everyone has a can do attitude and is passionate in everything they do.

    Cons

    i2i Events has an extremely fast paced atmosphere, if you do not enjoy that kind of environment then you could find it tough. Saying that, management are encouraging, supportive and from my experience have their team's backs! There are lots of social functions and opportunities to meet people from other teams and the TRG perks are brilliant!

    I have been working at i2i Events

    Pros

    High risk, high reward culture Nothing is impossible - the perfect place to make your own success and build your career - but you need to push it yourself, don't expect to be handed it on a plate - you make your own luck Fast paced and entrepreneurial spirit Supportive, 'human', hands on and honest senior management team Market leading brands and products International portfolio and business Celebrates success Great place if you don't have an events background - recruits for talent and skill Gives huge responsibility and accountability for those who want it (and guidance where needed) Excellent CEO

    Cons

    Harder for the teams who don't work on market leading brands 90% order and brilliance, 5% insanity - although that's the bit that lots of us like...5% Wolves of Wall Street (without the illegal bits)

    Thanks for taking the time to write this review and for your feedback. We have really tried to create a culture where nothing is impossible and where responsibility and autonomy is there for people who welcome it - those who want to be ambassadors, entrepreneurs and explorers!

    I have been working at i2i Events full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Creative and rewarding work where excellent people are given a chance to shine and pride is highly valued. This is a modern company with a fresh vibe, a young, vibrant workforce and a work-hard play-hard attitude. Management are excellent and will help you go far as long as you prove yourself worthy of their efforts.

    Cons

    These aren't really cons, but if you apply for a position at i2i, remember that the events industry is a fast-paced and occasionally competitve environment where you will be expected to work very hard, be relentlessly positive and really push yourself. It is not the kind of company where you will get your hand held in the sense of getting everything offered to you (you will be supported though, especially if you've not come from an events background). Don't apply unless you are prepared for this.

    A great leadership team. Striving to always be innovative. If you want to be part of a company that is growing, fast paced and constantly evolving - this is the company for you.

    Cons

    Not a negative but i2i is an immensely fast paced and transparent business. If this is not the working environment you sit well in - this is not the place for you. We carry no passengers!

    I have been working at i2i Events full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I’ve worked at i2i Events for two and a half years and is a completely different organisation to when I joined and its great to be part of its journey to become a truly international business. I’ve huge respect for the leadership and proud to work on market leading brands but most of all what I like about working here is the people. The people are great which has really shaped the open and fun culture where and there is always mutual respect. There are often social gatherings where so many people participate (more than other organisations I have worked for) which is testament to how well different teams get on with each other and enjoy working here.

    Cons

    The fast-paced environment is not for everyone.

    Pros

    i2i is a really dynamic company, with great scope for training and development. It's a very rewarding company to work for and as a result employees here are very passionate and driven in everything they do. There is a very strong culture of work hard, play hard. The work pace here is fast paced but for me and my colleagues this is an environment we thrive in. To recognise the hard work, there are socials held on the last Friday of every month for all employees. As well as this there is a social committee who are continuously organising social outings for the employees. Employees are regularly communicated to by the CEO and he is always very active amongst the business. It's a great place to work!!

    Cons

    Selfishly the only downside is the commute for me!
