Pros

Cvent has an amazing atmosphere and energy about the company. There are lots of fun hard working individuals with common goals and interests. Cvent is the true essence of a work hard play hard company. Great training when you start and throughout your career at Cvent. The Initial training is great for fresh out of school hires or people with real-world experience, but it doesn’t just stop there. Continuous training to make sure you keep getting better at your job month in and month out. Lots of responsibility passed on to you very early in your career. If you work hard and speak up there is a lot of opportunity to attend tradeshows foreign and domestic as well as the opportunity to work with newer staff on training and development. Lots of opportunity to move within the organization if you show interest in another position. If you work hard and make your voice be heard you will be rewarded with the job that interests you most. You can start in sales and move to tech, marketing, or even HR. Senior management is very passionate about the company and that is very contagious. You will believe in Cvent and have passion in what you do day in and day out. You will be very excited to work there.

Cons

If you work at Cvent you will work long hours. A normal day is 9.5 hours. Take this for what it is. It is a very competitive industry with lots of quality products and it takes a lot of hard work to make sure your product is being used by the majority.

Advice to Management

Cvent needs to keep recruiting smart hard working individuals to help continue the company’s growth. Cvent has created a great base of smart people who are very passionate and are willing to work hard. If the company wants to continue on the same flight path senior management needs to make sure the passion resonates from CEO to intern. If they can continue to accomplish this there is nothing that can hold Cvent back.

    Pros

    • Cvent is the type of company where the day flies by rather than sitting around watching the clock. • For employees who invest themselves into their work and the company there is a good amount of opportunity to progress quickly in their career. • The company values ideas from all levels, not just the top tier. • Collaboration comes first. Cvent fosters a very team oriented environment. • The company has succeeded and remained profitable while other companies have suffered over the past 3-4 years. A well funded, pre-IPO software company with a diverse client base is a good recipe for a stable place to work. This combined with the great culture and upward career growth potential makes it a great place to either establish or enhance your career path.

    Cons

    • The work hard, play hard culture can occasionally result in more than 40-45 hours per week. • Constant seat shuffling due to the growth of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within and award those who meet and exceed expectations.

    Pros

    Career growth opportunity - Management does an excellent job of understanding employees’ strengths and placing them in a position to succeed. Many business professionals who have been out of school 2-5 years are in positions of leadership and have advanced internally quickly. Since the company is profitable and growing, it lends lots of opportunities for current employees. Training program - Cvent's 6 week training program is interactive and educational and prepares you with the knowledge and skills that you need within your role. Training doesn't just stop after these 6 weeks are complete. Cvent's mentor program helps to continue development on a day to day basis. High energy environment - Employees at Cvent have high energy and it is what you may call a "work hard, play hard" environment. The opportunity to interact with my prospects, clients and fellow coworkers is something I look forward to every day. Accessibility to senior management - The management team at Cvent has an open door policy and I have a close relationship with all my managers and feel comfortable going with to them with new ideas or concerns that I may have. Opportunity to travel - I have at the chance to travel to our India office for training and development of our international sales team, as well as to industry tradeshows around the country giving me great exposure that few companies offer employees just out of college.

    Cons

    I work within the sales department and understand that this competitive environment is not for everyone. While some days you may work long hours, employees are rewarded for their extra efforts in both compensation and incentive prizes.
