    Pros

    I had a fantastic time at i2i, I was given all the support that I needed when starting out but was quickly allowed to take control of my own work. Everyone was lovely and supportive regardless of which event they worked on. This carried through to the social aspects where HR and the social committee were very active and encouraged socialising throughout the whole company.

    Kontras

    The only downside to this internship is the low pay. Whilst it is good that it is paid at all it is barely a livable wage in London so you may need some of your own money saved to support you during these three months. However, the low pay should not put you off of applying here as the company makes up for it in many other ways.

    Pros

    It is a good company to start off your career and learn new things. Colleagues are really friendly and the pressure of working there is not really hard.

    Kontras

    I wouldn't work there more than 2 years after finishing your studies. There is no promotion among employees.

    Rat an das Management

    Promote more employees rather than hiring.

    Pros

    Very good offices, despite the poor location. The company takes employee engagement seriously and offers a grown-up but fun environment. The products are all very high quality and people are generally passionate about their work. The company believes itself to be fast paced, but that is really an illusion created by the dizzying cadence of corporate change that happens in and around the people doing the work. I put...

    The brands are very strong, but with that come expectations that leave no margin for error. PDs through to sales execs are annually handed relentless budgets that preclude anything other than all hands on deck, full ahead charge at selling exhibition space/driving footfall. Whilst this has driven what is now a very slickly aligned sales and marketing process, it has come at a cost. Talented people are left wondering...

    The relentless focus on driving exhibition revenues in recent years has led to a battery hen style sales & marketing operation, consequently all of our eggs have ended up in one basket. Give the brands some room for maneuver when setting budgets, some head room for innovation and creativity. If there's no room for error, nobody will try anything new and stagnation will set in. If there is some appetite for new thinking...

    Pros

    i2i is a professional, fair, and enjoyable place to work, the people are at the top of their game and the products are of good quality. The company takes employee engagement seriously and looks to support progression and innovation. Thinking outside the box is encouraged and sharing expertise is valued. The company understands the need for adaptation and invests in research to inform product and business changes....

    The workload on most people is too high to allow for much creativity or long term thinking. Budget cuts on important events mean it is not possible to deliver an experience to visitors which rivals more innovative competitors Morale onsite is low, in part because marketing are treated differently to sales with the former staying in much cheaper accommodation There lots of vacancies at the moment with the majority...

    Review the headcount - if the target is increasing in a shrinking sector, you'll need more people to deliver success. Sort out the onsite hotel situation urgently.

    Pros

    A great office environment, open plan with a 'Google' feel to it. The people socially are fantastic and are looked after when it comes to organised events and activities with a genuine work hard play hard approach. All events appear to be the biggest/leading/most successful in their own industries.

    Kontras

    From the outside, looks great...the events seem to do well but there appear to be only a few real passionate 'events' people in the business. The rest are made up of interns and very young possibly out of their depth kids. Most of these are in the marketing team. Aside from my Brand Manager I'm not entirely sure who works on or cares about my brand due to 'matrix?' set up. I've been at other events companies and this...

    Stop treating staff and teams like children. If you insist on employing kids you have to teach them and guide the experienced people into the right job in the business. Progression is minimal for all. Support your sales teams with relevant and upto date collateral early enough in a show cycle for it to actually be useful. We need more support from our 'support' teams. All seem stretched, over worked and undervalued....

    Pros

    I wouldn't return to i2i for twice the money I was earning, but I did make some great friends while I was there and learnt a lot about the trade show industry. There are some nice perks at times- yoga for example, and frequent social events.

    Kontras

    Very little chance of progression. You won't be promoted- they just hire people in above you. The marketing structure is so segmented that people become specialists, which is detrimental if you're junior. Who is going to hire you going forward if you don't know the broader skills required?! Management don't know what they're on about. Setting highly unrealistic targets and tearing you to shreds when you don't hit them...

    Know what you're talking about and treat your employees as actual people. Don't take things personally- it's business. Don't blame the people you manage for your shortcomings. We're all learning and there's no harm in admitting that. Don't take credit for things you didn't do! Surely it looks good on you if the person you manage thrives?

    Pros

    A super fun environment to work in. The best thing about my time there was the opportunity to work across established events and new launches. The senior management were ( still are I hope!) really supportive. A true understanding that we were in it together through the highs and lows. There was visible progression and promotion of talent during my 5 years there ( especially with junior staters moving into event directors)...

    One of the reasons I left is because I wanted to work on tech events. At that moment the event mix was heavily weighted in say retail for example.

    Rat an das Management

    Keep recruiting good talent! Plus from.my observation it was sometimes a bit of a youth club atmosphere ( only natural given the opportunity to let go at the socials.)..older staff felt a bit like responsible adults. perhaps nip that in the bud.

    I really enjoyed working at i2i Events Group, the company has a fantastic atmosphere and hires really nice people making it an enjoyable and fun place to work. The social side of the company is great, they put on regular social activities and the last Friday of each month there are drinks downstairs for everyone to join in on.

    There were a number of challenges and frustrations with working at i2i, firstly the structure of the marketing department isn't conducive to good or productive work. All the teams are silo-ed into individual disciplines making the communication between teams terrible and also narrowing your experience if you're quite a junior member of staff. not giving you the exposure to the full marketing spectrum. There is also so...

    To retain staff at a more junior level I would recommend that they create more opportunities for progression. For anyone ambitious or driven, you can easily get de-motivated and bored. I would also make sure you practice what you preach, if you're not allowing staff to take taxis without emailing the CFO for permission, you shouldn't be allowing heads of departments to fly to overseas events without a need to do so.
