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

    Pros

    In the time I have been at Cvent I have had the opportunity to travel around the country, work on marketing collateral, work closely with the senior management team, helped to interview and train new employees on my team, communicate with my colleagues in our London office, and all within less than one year of working here. Early responsibility comes at you fast here, but it is a great chance to show your strengths. I am not micro-managed at all and am given freedom to work how I feel I am most productive. But if help is needed, my team is always there to support me. If you want to be a leader at Cvent, start acting like one and you will be treated as such. When you work hard and do well--Cvent is great at recognizing that--and that motivates me to work harder. I am looking for a place to build a career. And since everything happens so fast at Cvent (in one year I saw the company open a UK Office, go public, launch an Audience Management Platform, and now we are moving to a brand new building in a few months) you get that exposure and gain skills faster than you would at other companies.

    Of course, the culture is a huge plus. Wearing jeans and a t-shirt any day of the week is a really nice option to have. I love taking part in our ping pong tournaments and have fun socializing with my co-workers at Cvent sponsored events. And I can honestly say I have made some of my best friends here.

    I am always excited to come into work and see what is going to happen next.

    Cons

    The hours are longer than some companies, but they flyyy by fast. Cvent is so fast-paced, growing, and busy that by 6:30 I feel like I still need more time to get everything done. By Friday I am definitely ready for the weekend, but I would rather be really busy and time flies by, than bored and feel like time is dragging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep killin' it. I feel so confident that Cvent is going places because our management team knows what they're doing. There are so many inspiring people on our management team that I look up to. You can see how fast they got there from starting at the entry-level and making their way up the ranks.

    Pros

    For someone fresh out of college, you are provided fantastic sales and product training. As soon as that training is complete, you immediately join a sales team with the opportunity to develop business relationships with small to large organizations. It's rare that a company gives young employees the autonomy to deploy new sales strategies, make mistakes, travel, and accelerate their growth in a fun, fast paced industry. Because our product lines touch so many industries and verticals, you grow your business acumen by learning the ins and outs of business models from associations, non-profits, corporations, government agencies, and educational institutions.

    The experience is invaluable, and the opportunity for advancement at Cvent is continuously evolving as the company grows. If you do well, management notices and you have the opportunity to move up within the organization rather quickly.

    The final pro, for me, is the casual, yet professional, office environment. The team is close knit, and there is definitely friendly competition to accomplish team and company goals.

    Cons

    Cvent does not match on 401k, but their overall benefits package is strong.
