Pros

Cvent is an incredible place to start your career. I have had an incredible experience learning, growing, and building a career. - Culture. Cvent is made up of a group of good, intelligent, fun people coming in to do their best everyday. The culture at Cvent truly is special and lends itself to strong relationships forming between colleagues. It really is a "Work hard, Play hard" environment. - Growth. Cvent is rapidly growing, which leads to more opportunities and more experiences within the company. - Travel. Cvent has offices across the globe and provides opportunities for travel between those offices to carry the culture we work hard to maintain. - Management. The leaders of Cvent really care about their employees. There is really an open door policy. -Events. Cvent works hard to understand the wants of the employees and deliver. Events like the company holiday party, happy hours, incentives are great. - Training. Cvent puts you through a 6 week training program when starting an entry level position. It shows they are investing in you and the future of the company.

Cons

Cvent has created an environment that encourages going above and beyond. If you do not find yourself being self-motivating or going the extra mile then Cvent may not be a good fit. I love that environment, but that may be a con for those who feel differently. - The pay could match the effort a little bit better, but overall if you like what yo are doing like me it is not the worst thing. - A few more holidays would be nice. - Since the company is growing fast- there can be times where management does not have a clear answer for next steps (i.e. working through an acquisition can be challenging). Overall- Every company has pros and cons and Cvent works hard to improve the cons which speaks volumes.

Advice to Management

You rock. I appreciate your openness to take criticism and take the opinions of others the heart. Continue to lead with energy, confidence, and candor. I have faith in Cvent, because we have a strong management team supporting us.

    Pros

    In the time that I have been here, I have had the opportunity to work on a number of professionally challenging and rewarding projects and initiatives. I am able to come up with ideas which I am encouraged to share, create the project plan and execute against it with resources and support along the way. Some projects have been related to acquisitions and international expansion - not your every day bullet point on a resume. The people here are great - very smart, yet down to earth. It really is a collaborative and open culture where you can speak as easily to an Associate as well as an Executive. The cash comp and benefits offering is very competitive and since we went public last year, everyone is excited to reap the benefits when our options vest. The location is great in McLean, and will be even better later this year when we move down the street, because we will be right in front of the new metro stop and food truck row!

    Cons

    Working in a fast-paced, rapidly growing company is not without its fair set of challenges. Not all processes and standards have been established, but are in the works and done with input from employees. The management team is growing with the company and are being pulled in many directions, but it looks like new leaders are being promoted as well as hired externally to help fill any gaps. The working hours are not your standard (though nor is the opportunity to accelerate your career here), and with a family, it is tough to balance at times, but my manager offer flexibility in scheduling that alleviates a lot of the work/life balance stress.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to really listen to your employees, not just at the surface level, but what really matters to engage them and let them know that you deeply care about them and their development and success. The productivity, efficiency and output will come.

    Pros

    Amazing work culture, great benefits, senior management is very accessible, incredible travel opportunities (work travel could take you to nearly every continent in the world), smart and hardworking coworkers, innovative, top of the industry, many options to grow or transfer internally, casual dress, lots of fun activities outside of work (paintball, happy hours, incentive trips, cookouts, athletic teams, etc). **Cvent promotes an atmosphere that rewards those who work hard. If you're looking for a standard 9-5 job, which doesn't ask you to push beyond the status quo, then Cvent is probably not a good fit for you. Cvent has grown so much over the years for a reason, which is a combination of smart people and lots and lots of hard work. If you're an ambitious person that's anxious to work hard, then the sky is the limit with Cvent.

    Cons

    For those with 3+ years SAAS sales experience, it's tough for them to match what you could be paid elsewhere, but many of the other perks make up for this.

    Advice to Management

    You're on the right track, and many of the negatives people have pointed out will work themselves out as the organization continues to grow. Despite no longer being an employee, I'm cheering from the sidelines.
