    Pros

    The company is growing fast. The CEO is good.

    Cons

    Low pay and poor management. It seems like they just want to fill seats on the sales floor. Training should be more hands on.

    I worked at Cvent full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had a lot of fun and experience a lot of growth during my time at Cvent
    Very fun and lively environment
    Constant growth has allowed for many opportunities for work that expands
    Happy hours, holiday party and other non-work events
    Most of management is approachable

    Cons

    Benefits are OK, not competitive but not bad either
    During the end of my time there, some questionable hiring decisions were made (to fill seats instead of seeking talent)
    Management allows certain employees to get away with behavior that is damaging to the team and the company
    At times, work/life balance can get bad - this tends to depend on the manager's personality
    Performance reviews were inconsistently handled
    When people left the company, they were treated poorly from the moment they put in their notice. Afterwards, nothing positive could be said about them. It was scary to see the switch in people's views. No introspection was taken by senior individuals or management to understand the deeper issues that led to a person or people leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to listening, and investigating/acting on, issues that happen within the company. I personally found senior management was afraid to hear the truth when it wasn't to their liking.
    Consider the amount of stress that is being placed on those you manage. I have a feeling that, with certain directors/managers, stress will flow down the chain and have a negative impact overall.
    Keep up the fun environment, you guys already did a great job at this while I was there.

    Pros

    Young culture, high energy, really fun environment and industry, travel.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, and they are very watch dog - they track everything from your productivity to when you take your lunch. Management is grown in house so they dont have external leadership experience. Very high school click-ish.
