    I have been working at EventMobi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    EventMobi has an extremely passionate culture. The CEO manages to foster this common belief in making our client's lives easier, and everyone is hands on deck to make this vision a reality. The strength of the team as well as the quality of the product are a major plus.

    Cons

    Policies are occasionally unclear. With that immense growth, senior management constantly needs to readjust. Internal communications are challenging.

    Pros

    Great start up feel and innovative attitude. A lot of responsibility is distributed throughout the company. It's growing fast - a lot of employees that have been here less than a year.

    Cons

    Some growing pains! But nothing I haven't seen at other growing companies that are still figuring out organization/structure.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep on delegating responsibility to those you trust and leading the company overall in the right direction :)

    I worked at EventMobi full-time

    Pros

    The leadership are the most personable approachable people that I have ever worked with. There is great transparency within the organisation and they are super open to new suggestions from employees. It is like working with a family, everyone is very welcoming. Employees are truly hard working and dedicated which is a reflection of the management structure.

    Cons

    My only con is that the office space is not the most conducive to my specific role. But I expect that this change when they move into their new office.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Maintain and invest in the culture and you will continue to succeed!

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

    Pros

    * Modern company culture & technology. * Passionate employees who strive for improvement. * Lots of opportunity for challenging tasks and career growth. * The Events industry is both high potential and interesting. * The company is well positioned for further growth and success.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains as the company transitions to a larger scale in terms of communication, management, and process. However these are being continuously worked on and improved.

    Advice to Management

    * Prioritize hiring of experienced software developers. * Find ways to maintain strong company culture as the company grows. * Improve process and communication but ensure the company does not become overly bureaucratic.

    Pros

    - Dedicated & Passionate Team. People don't seem to be coming here for a job but really coming to make a difference which creates a driven culture that is constantly pushing to be better. Really makes you look forward to come into work everyday. - Environment. Though it's always shifting (and at times a little too much), the constant thought of providing an awesome place to work for employees is really great for a...

    Cons

    - Internal processes. Still have not matured enough for the size of the company. Lots of ad-hoc decisions made that are not communicated thoroughly. They seem to be done just to execute vs involving the people being affected. Lots of apologizing after the fact but it gets tiring at times. - Wrong hires. Reactive hiring is causing management to bring on poor culture fit or just not the right individuals for certain...

    Advice to Management

    I think to increase the speed and clarity of everyones work we need to not add new projects but rather take time to focus, find the important threads and double down on them. Bring on the right people to execute on those threads and continue to build the support structure and senior management team to help the teams & individuals mature and have help in doing their jobs well.

    I have been working at EventMobi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Contrary to some other reviewers, I've found EventMobi to be an incredibly welcoming and inclusive workplace. I've never once been 'silenced' or felt too afraid to speak up. Feedback is met with consideration and understanding when brought up appropriately. In fact, I would argue that feedback is often encouraged, challenging the norm is rewarded, and this has permeated not only meetings but the way we do work. In addition,...

    Cons

    The average age at EventMobi is very young, and so unfortunately it has brought with it a fair share of entitlement. This has started to erode the meritocracy that EventMobi strives to be, and every startup should be. That being said, there are growth opportunities if you excel at your role. If you expect a promotion just for showing up, then you're setting yourself up for failure. As a previous reviewer suggested (a...

    Advice to Management

    I agree that an external body (e.g. Investors, advisors, a board) would bring great value and balance to EventMobi.

    I have been working at EventMobi

    Pros

    I’ve been through many tech companies in my career so far, and I’ve never felt compelled to leave a public review of my employer, but given what’s been posted here as of late, I feel like it’s necessary. I’m in the engineering department, so I can’t speak to other areas of the company, but my experience here has been nothing short of excellent. Frankly, I suspect at least some of the negative reviews here have been...

    Cons

    Yes, it’s true that we are light on senior/management type people. This leads to a higher burden on each individual to make (good) decisions and show leadership within the teams, which is difficult. I think we have a long way to go on this front. For example: in engineering, it can be difficult to come to consensus on things, and because we are lacking in senior developers, some of those lessons are learned the hard way....

    Advice to Management

    Do not lump perks like corporate retreats and education budgets in with compensation. It’s seen as padding the numbers, which is unfortunate because, personally, I feel well compensated. Invest more in personal and professional growth. Many people don’t get to make use of their education budget, because it’s not really enough to cover travel + tickets to most tech related conferences. Also, a little more structure...

    Pros

    Talented and dedicated staff, challenging and interesting work, tons or opportunities for growth and learning. The company takes good care of its people and is working very hard to make this into a great company.

    Cons

    Still a long way to go as far as technical maturity (so you should join us and come help). The work is pretty demanding.

    Pros

    Invaluable opportunity to witness an organization as it grows from a "start-up" into a mature business set to continue to dominate the event technology marketplace. I can't wait to see what happens here in the next 3-5 years, and feel so fortunate to have the chance to witness and be part of the growth. Not only are there invaluable opportunities for career growth and learning from experienced, creative management...

    Cons

    No company has ever attacked growth with ease - there will always be growing pains. So you have to be comfortable with some level of ambiguity at times, and you have to be creative to survive. Don't expect your job role or processes to be laid out clearly, as things are always changing. If you see that as a con, you should consider a more mature company. I personally don't see this as a con at all, in fact the opposite...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I can only say that I am learning so much from the ingenuity and transparency of management in adapting to change.
