    I worked at HBC Event Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work from home: It isn't for everyone, but if you have a family with young, school age children this is an excellent career opportunity to be everywhere you need to be without sacrificing family. This company is very understanding of work/life balance (but don't think you can be lazy and sit on your laurels, you will be busy earning your keep). If you have an appointment, they will usually try to work with you. Of course you must make your time up somewhere if you expect to be paid for it. Speaking of pay: Compensation is quite substantial. It does depend on your work experience, but the company seems to pay well and understands that you must pay for what you are getting. Additionally, if you take into account what you are saving commute-wise (gas and wear on your car), that can really make a difference. You also do not have to maintain an extensive professional wardrobe. There is the odd occasion you might work or visit an event or site, but it's very rare. Overall, between what you're saving and earning, along with convenience of working from home, it's a nice way to make a living.

    Cons

    Work from home: Be sure you know yourself well and make sure you are comfortable being alone for extended periods of time. Working from home can be good or bad depending on your personality type. You could go crazy working from home if you are a people person and did it long enough. Work/life balance: Again this can be good or bad. It requires a lot tremendous amount of self-discipline and time-management. You are responsible for checking in and out of work with a timestamp. Workaholics beware! You can easily wind up burning the midnight oil without noticing. Workload: Depends greatly on upcoming events. It can be super busy at times, trying to complete too many tasks with not enough hours in the day. Other times it can be a little slow. This is primarily because you are dealing with events, it's just the nature of the beast and it comes with the territory.

    Pros

    People are awesome and the fact that this is a small company makes us all feel like we are family. Heavy work load but they are very fair and generous with the pay. Working from home is awesome as well.

    Cons

    No company is perfect but there are more good things about the company than bad ones. The job is stressful but any position with a lot of responsibility carries a certain level of stress that is unavoidable.

    I worked at HBC Event Services

    Pros

    The pay was good and the job itself allowed for plenty of travel and networking opportunities. It's also a small company where you speak to and work with everyone on a daily basis.

    Cons

    The turnover rate of this company tells the story well. The work load was ridiculously heavy, and requires many hours of overtime to complete everything, if that is even a possibility. Management is made up of a family, as well, which means there isn't much room for advancement.
