    I worked at Worldwide Business Research full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - The earning potential is fantastic, with very realistic OTE figures and the potential to increase your earnings significantly, very quickly. The events are growing and there is an awful lot of revenue to be won, with an excellent commission scheme - The work/life balance is second to none.

          Pros

          I've been in the conference industry for 10+ years, hands down, WBR is the best out there. They understand the work that needs to be done before executing a conference. It's not like one of those churn and burn companies and see if the event sticks. They truly take the time to do research before executing a conference. What does that mean for an employee? That makes me appreciate WBR because they give you a good amount...

          I have been working at Worldwide Business Research full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          - WBR's company culture and positive work environment is the biggest pro that comes to mind. I've felt support from my manager and co-workers from the day I started my job. Playing office politics and competing with each other is not really a thing here, and you can always count on your colleagues' help and friendly advice on how to deal with challenges in your work. The fact that most employees have been with the company...

          Cons

          - Depending on your production schedule, this job can be very stressful and demanding because you are constantly juggling multiple projects and deadlines and need to hit high targets in order to grow your events. If you are not good at multi-tasking, this job is probably not a good fit for you. - Because of my project scheduling overlaps, I haven't had a chance to take more than five vacation days in a row. This was...

          What an incredible review! Thanks for breaking down all these pro and for being honest about the cons. Yes, multi-tasking is a VERY big deal if you're going to produce multiple world class events at the same time. We're lucky to have people who can do it and do it well.
