    I have been working at Cvent part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great people who make work fun - majority are geuinely kind and caring, always willing to help no matter what job
    - Lots of socials including monthly drinks and different activities
    - Not one day is the same, always something new and different to do so I never get bored
    - Management are readily accessible, easy to talk to and not condescending or itimidating - very friendly and treat you as a friend
    - Good guidance for what I want to do and encouragement when I have new ideas for the office and for my role
    - Rewarded and appreciated for doing well both in words of appreciation and in salary

    Cons

    - Location of office - not a great commute for some employees but I guess you can't please everyone and current office also lacks meeting rooms
    - Some days can be very long - really unpredictable workload in my job role
    - Very busy in the run up to and during CONNECT - had to work long hours way past my scheduled timetable and no Time Off In Lieu
    - Seems like Sales always get the most incentives with fun competitions and evenings out
    - May feel there is bias towards Cvent HQ

    Advice to Management

    Recognise and reward your outstanding employees before they even start looking for a new job, that way they won't even consider leaving. We've lost a lot of good people because recognition and reward was too little, too late.
