    Four Lessons From SeatGeek's Fan-Friendly Assault On Ticketmaster

    "The goal is to use data, design, and technology to get users to go to more events," says SeatGeek CEO Jack Groetzinger. "There's a lack of advocacy baked into the [ticketing] business. Tickets in North America are sold via exclusive long-term contracts where buyers can only purchase them from a single venue.

    I have been working at SeatGeek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Reasonable flexibility to work on whatever interests you most.
     - The company tends to focus on aligning people & teams, allowing them to get stuff done in the way that's most effective for them.
     - People, especially HR & Executive team truly care about individual growth
     - The entire team seems to really care about the people using the product, whether the "product" means the apps, website, customer support, marketing campaigns, etc
     - The company is on a trajectory to become a billion+ dollar company, and is working hard toward reshaping what most would call a broken industry
     - Many team events are awesome, but Workation (a yearly event where everyone in the company goes on a company-planned & paid vacation for a few days) is the best. Great opportunities to get to know people outside your immediate work function
     - People are very open to feedback/questions about what they're working on

    Cons

    - No bike parking & the building owners/staff in NYC set weird rules (no rolling luggage greater than 22" in width in the lobby, no bikes in elevator (hence no bike parking))
     - Occasionally can have very busy times (especially with the seasonality of live events) where teams must align & focus on absolutely getting things done, and done well
