photo-culture

Cvent’s not a startup anymore, but you wouldn’t always be able to tell. We’ve worked hard to maintain a culture of entrepreneurship even as we’ve grown larger. So what does it mean to be a Cventer? It means having the freedom to innovate, while still being a part of something larger. It’s having a voice that’s heard, and a team who will listen. It’s working hard, and it’s celebrating our victories.

Celebrating Successes

Company events at Cvent consist of more than just an annual holiday party. Company-sponsored happy hours, team-building, potlucks, paintball outings and team sports happen throughout the year.

And hey, our holiday party is pretty great too.



Giving Back

Whether through volunteering time at company-run events or participating in donation drives, there’s always a way to get involved and make a difference.

Giving back is a core part of the Cvent culture, and we hope you can join us in improving our community and the world around us.




Getting Out

Company picnic? Check. Paintball tournament? You got it. Bike to work day? Love it.

Here at Cvent we encourage getting out and about. When it’s beautiful outside we can promise we’ll be having events in the great outdoors!

Conveniently located in the heart of northern Virginia's business district, Cvent headquarters is less than 100 yards from Tysons Galleria and close to more than 25 restaurants as well as the area's best shopping. Cvent's headquarters in McLean Virginia is easily accessible from Route 495, Route 66 and the Dulles Toll Road, making it the ideal location for commuters coming from all parts of DC, Maryland and Virginia.  

Stay tuned -- Cvent's headquarters will be moving to a new location by the end of the summer. Here are some highlights about our new offices and surrounding location:

  • Direct access to Metro’s Silver Line Greensboro Station, which is opening July 26 and is steps away from the Cvent office
  • Daily food trucks just outside the door
  • Café in the building, with lots of food options and daily specials
  • Dozens of other restaurant and shopping options within a short walk

    Pros

    I've been working at Cvent for about a year, and prior to arriving put a good deal of thought in my decision to come on board with the company...as someone with a passion for events and people, I could not have made a better decision. The company culture here is outstanding - it's a young (but not too young, as many reviews from years back suggest on here), thriving, cutting edge tech company that's solidifying itself as the dominant force in a greenfield industry that's hip, cool and fun....that's not to say I like every person I work with, but I absolutely respect and admire the vast majority for their work ethic, creativity, integrity and industry savvy. This crucially includes senior management, who still continues to be accessible and warm despite continued growth.

    Cvent is also moving towards a model that previous SaaS companies have been successful with, adopting a customer-obsessed mentality/go-to-market strategy, while moving away from some of the archaic rules and practices that have kept it from being what one would call progressive in the past. They are hiring more experienced people from the outside, particularly in critical leadership positions. This is a "good" company on the verge of being a "great" one, if Cvent continues to grow and more importantly, evolve as an enterprise.

    Cons

    At least on most of the teams (particularly sales and marketing) it's a serious grind. Not at all for the shy, faint of heart or those lacking competitive drive and self-motivation. The customers -mostly event planners and marketers- can be some of the most wonderful or the most terrible people you'll ever have to do business with. While not unique to Cvent/SaaS, the sales cycles can be exceedingly long and the end of each quarter feels like a throw back to finals week in college. Many people can handle this, but those who cave under a sales bravado driven environment should not pursue a career here.

    Work/life balance is something they're doing more to promote and encourage, but it's very difficult to reconcile with the level of expectation placed on us. I tend to work at least 10-15 hours more a week than the 9-6:30 day, and this is not unique.

    Attrition at lower level positions is a problem that needs to, and can be addressed by hiring more qualified people, paying and training them better.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of 401K match is STILL a major point of contention...Reggie, we love you, but it's conditional. It's the year 2015 and a company with a $1B market cap CAN afford to take better care of its most important assets, as you always make clear are it's people.

    Also, please amend the misguided policy about remote work/wfh and having a minimum of three years at Cvent HQ to having a minimum of three years professional employment with a good track record. This is a paradigm shift many companies made years ago, and will open the doors to hiring the kind of workers that continually raise the bar...as well as keep your office/parking costs down.
