    I have been working at Cvent full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cvent is constantly growing and adapting, so you don't feel idle or stagnant.
    Employees are encouraged to contribute and act as if this they own the company, so if you're a self-starter, you'll be happy. I'm excited by the opportunities there are here to make our customers' lives better.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains. At times, it feels that the company is growing too fast, and as the company gets larger, it's difficult to feel as connected as you once could.
    Family medical plan is expensive. There are benefits for people with families, but they appear to be more beneficial to young, single people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on maintaining a culture of attracting the best talent and the idea of "intrapreneurship." Keep looking for ways to improve on benefit offerings.

    Pros

    Opportunities for transfer between departments. Benefits are good with small signs of improving. Rewards high performers.

    Cons

    Management got a little razzled by industry changes. Sometimes we don't know what we don't know.

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate more between departments; be bold at developing and keeping consensus.

    Pros

    Even with the global growth, Cvent's startup mentality is still very strong. They encourage employees of all levels to act as entrepreneurs and treat the business as if it was theirs. Additionally, the senior exec team is always open to new ideas from all employees and encourages an open, transparent culture.

    Cons

    If you are not a self-starter or you thrive off of external motivators, Cvent might not be the place for you. They encourage that entrepreneurial spirit and go-getter attitude!

    I have been working at Cvent full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cvent is an amazing company to work for - this is the only place I have worked throughout my career where I have felt like I truly have an impact on the company and the work I am doing is respected, noticed and I am rewarded for it. Employees are given the flexibility to own their process, not be micromanaged and implement new ideas and think outside the box. The culture is awesome, it's an extremely collaborative environment where doors are always open. I love the people I work with and believe that they challenge me to be better.

    The culture definitely exemplifies "work hard, play hard" and you are expected to come in, do your work and do it well, and when you do that, you will reap the rewards of the hard work you put in.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons that come to mind, every time I have had any sort of issue or expressed a need for more responsibilities or upward movement in my career, my management team has been able to fulfill those needs.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep pushing and motivating us as employees
    - Continue to reward and notice those who put in the extra effort
    - Continue innovating and being the best of the best!

    I worked at Cvent full-time

    Pros

    -Great training
    -Friendly co-workers
    -Free food sometimes
    -Free beer sometimes
    -Company sports teams

    Cons

    -9 hour mandatory work days (not including lunch or any other breaks - they will notice this and they will flag you for it). This means you will likely be in the office for close to 10 hours/day.
    -Every minute of the day is tracked. That means you better be working for all 9 hours of the day, or management will notice and flag you for it. When you badge out to go use the bathroom or for any other reason, they will take note of that and use it against you.
    -Management is more concerned about the time at your desk than the quality of work you put in
    -Extremely high turnover rate. They market themselves as a young company, that's because everyone quits after a year or two and they bring in new college graduates to fill these roles.
    -The pay is actually not that great when you factor in how many hours you are working. No OT or any other worthwhile financial perks to make up for how much time you spend working.

    Advice to Management

    Be like every other company and stick to what works. 9+ hour work days is ridiculous, when you don't give your employees lunch breaks. Work life balance is important for the well-being of your employees. Cvent is simply the best at event management, treat your employees better.
