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

Pros

The best thing for me is that Cvent is expanding its tech stack. We are developing horizontally scalable architectures so I'm getting to work with a lot of new technologies like noSQL datastores and writing new SOAs. The development process is all Agile -- some sprints and some Kanban. The company is tech agnostic which I like so there is C#, Java (Linux), iOS and Android, and platforms like Redis, DataStax (Cassandra/SOLR), and Couchbase along with SQLServer. This is a mature company but it feels like a startup (tech management come from startups) without all the risk.

Cons

I've been here one year and still liking it a lot.

    Pros

    Cvent is growing very quickly and there's tons of opportunity, they like to promote internally. The people are really fun most have a pretty good work ethic.

    Cons

    It's a grind! The hours are way too long plus you have to commute. They also don't pay very well...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing so many hours. It should be about working to live, not living to work. And listen to your employees about what they want.
