    The people are generally nice, but be weary of the niceness.


    Upper management are some of the more clueless, entitled people I've met in my career. They do not care about their employees, just their bank accounts, and are consistently shady about what their plans are for shows and the company. If something isn't working, instead of looking into why and changing the approach, they just switch out people and locations and hope it works. They know employee satisfaction is not high and yet nothing changes, so people are always looking for other opportunities with better stability and benefits.
    Not a bad place for someone to start and get your hands on some basic business practices, but don't expect to move up quickly. They create tiers in their departments to make it seem like you're being promoted, but even the head of HR admits that's for millennials to feel like they're being rewarded. Pay is hilariously low for the area as well, and the health benefits are minimal.

    Advice to Management

    None - there's nothing that will change people's desire for power and money, and that's what fuels upper management at Reed.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions (Norwalk, CT (US)) in January 2011.


    Reed hires slowly. You will have to go through at least 5 interviews before an offer is presented or you hear back from them. HR is knowledgable and courteous. Expect to be brought into the office 2-4 times for separate interviews. Research the company, the trade show industry and their individual portfolio of shows on their corporate site before interviewing.
