    I worked at Cvent full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, upper management has a great open door policy and it's a great team-oriented, fast paced place to work. Really young company and it is constantly growing with vast opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Just like any sales role, it can be very stressful. If you can't handle people being rude to you on the phone or can't imagine cold calling 60 people in a day, then this job really may not be for you. Still, fantastic company though

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

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

    Pros

    Compensation is higher than median. Typical annual salary increase is double the average of other companies (other companies usually give 2 - 3% increase). Young and vibrant colleagues mixed with experienced leaders. Fantastic office. Responsive to employee feedback. And they respond to feedback with positive action (such as summer hours, 401K matching, and continued free healthcare for single employees)

    Cons

    9.5 hours daily average workday (9:00 AM - 6:30PM). Vacation carryover has a yearly ceiling.

    Advice to Management

    To a few management folks (not all), please listen to the feedback of employees who are disgruntled and win them over because if you don't address them, these disgruntled employees (who are probably disgruntled everywhere they work at) will spread negativity among productive and motivated coworkers. Don't prohibit them, listen to them and win them over.

    I have been working at Cvent full-time

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment that encourages out of the box thinking and is always looking for the next big idea.

    Cons

    In the fast-paced environment where every eye is constantly looking for the next shiny object in the room, its hard to put a lot of strategic thought and analysis into a new idea. Success often happens through sheer hard work and brute force, rather than strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down. Sometimes is pays to think strategically rather than change course with every new idea.

    "Excellent entry-level environment"

    I have been working at Cvent full-time

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment rewards those who invest in their own success and provides an excellent opportunity for upward mobility and the freedom to work on a wide variety of extraneous projects. Moreover, the entry-level positions are not particularly demanding and motivated, intelligent employees will find it relatively easy to differentiate themselves from their peers.

    Cons

    As the company has grown, an influx of outside hires at senior positions has depressed the ability to move above middle management and also has created a tremendous disparity in wages despite identical daily responsibilities and, in many cases, lower sales quotas.

    Articulating a commitment to work/life balance does not make it so, particularly when many in middle management babysit their employees, coaching them on how to at least appear to put in the hours.

    Advice to Management

    Reward experienced employees who have contributed to growth and have been critical in the creation of the company's structure. Reward them with cash, particularly when the stock is down. Take a page from Twitter.

    Pros

    The Cvent product line has a lot to offer. Because of that, there are plenty of things you can work on. Decent work life balance.

    Cons

    Below average pay in some cases. Benefits are also below average. But they are trying to change that! It's difficult when you are on a newly formed team and trying to advance because management will over build and the team will be top-heavy for a while.

    "A Silicon Valley feel... in a very government-focused town"

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

    Pros

    I recently made the move to Cvent... and the decision was a no-brainer, in my opinion. The office has a modern/slick feel to it, which is very fitting for an industry-leading software company.
    Cvent is truly unique, in the midst of the DC area. It has the feel of a Silicon Valley tech company, right in the heart of an area that is so saturated with government/government contracting. Because of the nature of the business in event management software and platforms, we have a very young and energetic employee base, that is eager to help grow the company even further. Senior management does a great job of being transparent about the state of the business and where they see it going. This helps the employee-base really believe in the business model.

    Cons

    The company is not your typical "9-5" structure, meaning they like seeing their employees put in a bit of the extra effort to help develop the business. A 45 hour week is the expected norm. I think for employees that are looking to just clock-in and clock-out everyday, Cvent is not the right fit... but for those employees that want to be part of a growing business and don't mind rolling up their sleeves acknowledging they can make a difference, those individuals can feel that sense of purpose in helping the company grow.
