What Employees Say
I worked at WGSN full-time for less than a year
Could be a decent, globally recognized opportunity if you're in the right department and have great managers.
Management is a crap shoot and, much of the time, unprofessional. They were wishy-washy and overwhelmed yet didn't take any responsibility. I couldn't even manage up since they kept changing their... minds every 5 seconds. One thing didn't change...their bad attitude! They say things one minute then go back on their word. If you have a brain—RUN!
Advice to Management
Hire and hold on to people who are competent. Fire people who don't know what they're doing (especially management). Allow for growth/opportunity of staff who have put in a few years. Respect fresh... new blood with innovative ideas—don't silence us for doing our jobs!
I worked at i2i Events
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.
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.
