What are perks and other benefits like at Cvent?

Pros

Company has fantastic growth, branching out to the rest of the world and becoming leaders in the Event industry. Sales & Marketing often have amazing perks to the job, involving attending fantastic events, pay and other similar benefits.

Cons

Client Services team are not treated with as much respect or rewards like other teams. You spend a lot of your time resolving issues and providing work arounds for clients, but it never gets recognised as its deemed as part of your job. Recognition, rewards and awards always go to Sales and Marketing. As there is a lot of outsourcing out to India, PC's from other regions are not respected well and it takes a lot of effort to prove that you are far more capable than your India counterpart. So you have to do a lot of work initially just to show that you can do your job well, and with the complex products, this can take months to even be on a ground base. If you are high achiever, and appreciate the odd praise here or there to motivate you further, this is not the place for you.

Advice to Management

CS teams do a lot of work that gets unrecognised. Retention will only come from recognition and rewards, do not spite them off by rewarding that Sales person who caused a tonne of mess in the first place.

What is the retirement plan like at Cvent?

Pros

- The people overall are amazing. You will have the opportunity to work with really smart individuals for a industry leading company. - We’re working from home (probably until mid-2021) but the office is really nice and culture is great especially for young professionals. - Depending on the department, top-down communication is typically good and you do feel like you’re cared for as a person. - They handled the COVID layoffs with integrity and really helped those who they laid off

Cons

- Promotions are only title changes and don’t include more money (also only happen 2x/year), so it’s very difficult to increase your compensation unless you’re hired at an already high pay. - “Promotions” are also based on tenure and not always performance so they can be very political and hard to obtain. - Great company for recent college graduates but a tough place for career advancement. - We’ve taken a hit due to COVID so no bonuses, merit increases, and 401k matching.

Advice to Management

Recognize and reward your high performers
