I have been working at Cvent full-time for 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

    - Autonomy to manage your own projects
    - Opportunity to build your own path - all new ideas are really encouraged!
    - Fantastic culture and people - some my colleagues are my closest friends
    - Ability to grow quickly within the company - lots of internal promotions on a biannual basis
    - Increase your skill set in no time - you learn so many skills!
    - Senior management is attentive and gives great feedback and direction

    Basically my experience so far at Cvent has been incredible. I've learned so much, had many opportunities to advance my career, gain amazing new colleagues, and expand my role within the company.

    Cons

    This is tough. I guess if you don't love what you do, I don't know if you'd love working here. We work hard, but we also play hard. If that doesn't describe you, then I don't think Cvent is the place for you.
