    Pros

    Eventbrite is a great place to expand your skillset and transition upward or into other areas of the business. You have the opportunity to work with many different teams on many different projects which gives you the opportunity of exposure to senior leaders or E-Staff. Overall, the company genuinely cares about the employees and is definitely a very employee-friendly workplace. Some of the benefits employees once loved have taken a hit since our offices are closed due to COVID, but I'm personally appreciative of the fact they are prioritizing our safety and not forcing us to return to an office before it is safe to do so. They've been working on getting creative with the WFH benefits but they are definitely not fair and consistent across the company (employees in California receive a monthly WFH stipend but no one else outside of California receives this). For the most part, the people are all very creative, resilient, friendly, intelligent, and wonderful to work with. The company really does have some fantastic people and the culture was amazing before the pandemic took a toll. The company is still healing from layoffs last April but I genuinely enjoy the majority of the people within my team and other teams I collaborate with.

    Cons

    You have to be VERY scrappy, agile, and comfortable with change to succeed here. It is an everchanging environment and most teams are stretched very thin due to the impact of the pandemic on the industry resulting in layoffs last year. If you are not able to multitask, be agile and autonomous, or you're uncomfortable with the continuous change you will not succeed here. Work / life balance can be a struggle at times and some teams are able to take more time than others. The company and most leaders encourage employees to take time off but it can be difficult to do so or lead you to feel guilty when you know your team is stretched so thin. A lot of opportunity for growth and internal mobility but you have to really fight for it and advocate for yourself. Unless you have a leader that goes above and beyond to fight for it for you, you won't progress much unless you're extremely proactive. The company does not offer much support on internal mobility resources and opportunities are a bit scarce right now.

    * best working culture I've ever been a part of * very hard to make cross-functional work, but EB has invested energy here and paying off * reflective culture that really believes in the ESG actions they take, not just lip service

    Cons

    * I've heard that historically we've lacked vision, but this seems to have since been corrected as c-suite has formed re

    Pros

    The culture at Eventbrite is unreal. I've never worked for a company that truly invest and believe in diversity and inclusion while also caring about the mental health of their employees. One of the best places I’ve worked at by far.

    Cons

    I wish I had the opportunity to meet my amazing co-workers face to face
