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:

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The main advice is to keep doing what they're doing for the most part. I took a 20% pay cut to come here. It was hard, but I hit a point in my career where money was less important than overall happiness. I wanted to be in an environment where people were competent, smart, but also had fun while they did their job. It was a hard and scary decision to join the team, but it's the best decision I've made professionally. I think the main room for improvement is continue thinking about more experienced talent, how to attract and keep people with a number of years' experience. I think management is doing this, but continue to keep the 20 somethings in mind as they become 30, 40 and beyond, meaning heftier retirement benefits and more family friendly policies. It does feel young which is actually one of the reasons I came aboard, to add some experience while being energized by up-and-comers here, but if there's any room for improvement, that's be it.

    Product Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cvent.

    Interview Details

    I initially interviewed for a sales position, but discussed the product consultant position with the HR rep. I came in about a month after the initial interview for an in-person interview. It was quite a long interview - the entire thing lasted about 3 or 4 hours. I interviewed with 3 different people and shadowed one of the product consultants. I appreciate the extensive interview process because it exemplifies their investment in their employees. They offered me a position with great benefits and a decent starting salary, but I had to decline. They had mentioned during the hiring process that they require their employees to stay for 2 years, which was fine by me. What they didn't mention (until I received the offer letter) is that new hires are given a "training" loan for $7500. If you leave before 2 years, you are required to pay all or part of it back! I found that to be unfathomable. The position sounded like a good place for me, but I just couldn't sign any contract like that.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were all pretty standard. Because I have some experience in this field, a few of the interviewers asked me specific questions about my previous employment.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I have never heard of a company forcing their new hires to sign for a $7500 "training" loan. No reputable company would force their employees to pay to quit.
