I worked at Eventbrite full-time (More than a year)

Pros

* The management has really improved over the last year. I think Eventbrite actually tries hard to make sure employees are happy, but there is something missing and hence a handful of good people already left.
* Great work-life balance.
* Some of the smartest and kindest people. There is a few people who are not that good but there is few of them.
* Free lunches
* Work across the world as there is more acquisitions if you are lucky
* Unlike salary, benefits are pretty good

Cons

* Pay quite below the average for engineers
* If you are one of the hire up favorites, your concerns are more likely to be addressed. Same goes in engineering. Not much gets done unless you are one of the people who is "respected". It's a bit biased to be honest.
* As someone already mentioned, behind that good exterior there is hidden lies and lack of enthusiasm.

Advice to Management

Promote people if they work hard and go out of their ways. The pay is low so there is not much incentive unless you make it so (with more raises and promotions).

    Pros

    The overwhelming majority of employees at Eventbrite are kind, hard working, empathetic and capable. The open office plan allows for cross departmental collaboration in ways that many other companies fail to do. The executive managers are incredibly smart, creative and humble people, which is why their employees work so hard for them.

    Cons

    There will always be a few bad apples. Eventbrite has a few of these who made work difficult at times but they were far and in between.
