Do not work there if you don't do well under stress
Manager (Current Employee) – Norwalk, CT – 18 December 2018
This job is best for anyone just getting our of college and wanting good experience in the event industry. But for the most part, many employees here are underpaid and overworked, with little work/life balance. The travel is a nice part of the job, and there are some really great people that work here. I believe they are so great because they all have something in common, and that is that they are willing to sacrifice so much to be a part of this company.

Okay company to start your career, but way too much drama within. Certain departments are still stuck in the 80s/90s with regards to the environment and ways of doing things. Has potential to be a great place to work, just sad its not doing that.
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Norwalk, CT – 2 April 2018
Working at Reed comes with a lot of benefits. I think it's a great place to start out, but it is not practical long term. The company culture is great and they offer good benefits. You have the opportunity to travel a lot and meet a lot of new people all the time. You can learn a lot here, but if you want to advance in your career, and make more money, you won't find that here.
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – กรุงเทพมหานคร – 8 March 2018
Very nice organization but really old culture. Salary is a little bit low for position of back office but they are focus IT and marketing. if you are in that position you might appreciated with your salary.
Reed is a great place to acquire skills for the future, but it wasn't where I wanted to spend my career. Marketing is very young which causes a relaxed atmosphere, but the job itself can be very stressful and fast-paced with conflicting deadlines and last minute assignments. If you have an event coming up, don't expect to leave the office before 6:30. This is true during the fall and spring as well since it is their busiest time of the year. There are a lot of great perks to the job such as being able to travel to events, happy hours, and company events, but not enough to keep people long-term.
Senior Finance Manager (Former Employee) – Richmond upon Thames – 7 November 2017
I cut my teeth at this company, learned a lot and grew into a professional finance manager. Met many great people and have lots of good friends. Travelled the world with my job; Europe, Dubai, Russia and I am grateful for the experiences and memories.
Travelling abroad, great people.
working weekends a few times a year, little scope for career progression
Reed Expo is a great company and I am pleased to have had such a good experience. It is my time to advance! I want to continue to grow other departments and companies. I need to be responsible for more!
