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

    Pros

    Thought leadership, the people, room for growth, trustworthy product and service model, company values (GRIT), meaningful work, amazing energy, family vibe, transparent communication.

    Cons

    If you work here, flexibility is key and this start-up culture isn't for the faint of heart with the fast-paced operations work load. It does make everyone here passionate though and that's why our culture is so strong. It's because everyone wants to be here and works hard to be here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to streamline our systems as we grow.

    I worked at Convene full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I found Convene by chance, and I am so happy that I did! This was the first internship where my managers truly trusted me with a project, no hovering, and my opinion was valued even as a temporary employee!

    Cons

    Was not told what the hours were going to be like prior to internship. I had past internships in hospitality before, but it was definitely a wake up call when I had to be in at 6:30 AM/7 AM every day. I know paid internships are rare, but I was doing equal work of full time employees and was only being paid $10/hour, wish they had a stipend at the beginning of the summer for travel/housing.

    Advice to Management

    Your company is amazing! Please continue to focus on the culture and team!

    Exciting Growth, Culture of Gratitude, Genuine people, work life balance for people in the operation. Benefit package. Everyone feels they are part of the future of the organization, at every level. I never feel like I am going to work!

    Growth pace creates constant change. Every day is different.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the importance of the company's success through the employees. Keep growing

    I worked at Convene full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team and company culture. Managers listen and care about employees.

    Cons

    Not always consistent because of multiple locations. Curious to see how Convene will manage outside of NY.

    Advice to Management

    Don't spread yourself too thin. Focus on what you have and how to build on that.

    "Will lay workers off without giving them a chance to show talent"

    Pros

    Some people are very friendly and helpful. The founders have a great vision and the company has potential if ran well.

    Cons

    They will lay you off without any indication - in fact, they will notify you after you leave work for the day.
    Also, this company is a start up with delinquency issues and its financial head is a disaster.
    They have been having "corporate restructurings" every so often.
    The accounting dept is ran as if the company were a mom and pop shop.
    There was no training whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to re-evaluate its talent. The company has excellent potential as a start up but when certain people don't take their jobs seriously, it can be a real drag.

    I have been working at Convene full-time

    Pros

    Excellent teamwork, supportive management, lots of variation, forward thinking, positive attitudes, (mostly) convenient locations, open to new ideas, opportunities for personal and professional growth

    Cons

    Hours can be inconsistent, often information is a bit fragmented, difficult to plan around schedules, corporate personnel often seems somewhat disconnected from daily operations

    Advice to Management

    Continue the level of support and caring for your employees. Keep an open line of communication with the workers on the floor. There is a lot of change going on in this rapidly growing company but the people handling daily operations often feel somewhat in the dark.
