    I worked at Cvent part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of great, energetic, and smart people. Performance-driven culture. Autonomy is given if you deserve it.

    Cons

    You have to work really hard and make sure you create your own opportunities to get ahead/make more. It is certainly a grind. But if you put in the effort and keep a positive attitude /play ball you can do well. Culture has changed in last couple of years. Becoming less laid-back and more like other offices in northern Virginia.

    I have been working at Cvent full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Pros

    If you can find your niche, Cvent is a great place to develop a career. People are nice and you'll enjoy working here.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average for the industry and it is particularly difficult to right-size your salary if you started as a junior employee and got promoted over time.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cvent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some good people but leadership is trash

    Cons

    CEO is a raging lunatic. Often demeaning to staff and HRs job is solely to protect him. Long hours are required in the office because there is no trust
