I have been working at Cvent full-time (more than an 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

    cool people everywhere, very open business structure, hard work is appreciated. I enjoy my work and get a thrill from completing something cool that I'm proud of.

    Cons

    work long hours, sometimes (more often than i would consider normal) you're expected to pull some pretty late nights getting last minute projects done. Some confusion surrounding the direction of each of the many products, and integrations with new acquisitions can be tough.
