    I have been working at Cvent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great team to work with Technology is really up and coming Depending on your manager, you can have flexible work environment, work from home policy etc.

    Cons

    Having to navigate the bureaucracy of senior management HQ is definitely the 'favourite child' and you have to learn to do things the 'US way'

    I worked at Cvent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people (not management). Overall, pretty young work environment.

    Cons

    This is definitely just a Sales company, with very little respect for and focus on any other department. On most teams, your role is extremely dispensable, so always keep that in mind before getting too comfortable. Absolute 0 room for growth, people tend to leave after 2 years. The pay is absolutely terrible, for the amount of work you put in. Hourly employees are expected to work 42.5 hours a week with very little opportunity for OT unless you’re traveling for a client onsite (clearly not happening for a long time). You’re expected to sign a 2 year contract , and if you leave within the 2 years, the result is paying a very expensive invoice. All in all, this industry is slowly dying, so you’re better off looking elsewhere that pays more than 43K.

    Cvent is a great place to work. You will have the amazing work environment and culture. Management is very supportive, your voice will be heard. Your work will be valued. Job security is very much there. Employee benefits are superb few are complimentary meal, work from home, Corporate discount and many more.

    I have been working at Cvent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cold brew keg and casual work environment

    Cons

    The mobile team is run by leaders who value metrics, and hate any creative opposition. Pay is low. Promotions are based on favoritism and showcase the lack of boundaries between managers and direct reports. The team has a constant turn over, with only "favorites" and those who are afraid to pay thousands of dollars for breaking their 2 year contract remaining. Managers are promoted to a leadership position simply for outlasting everyone else. Cvent is a cool company, but I would stay far away from a role on the Mobile Solutions team and pursue a position on any other team.
