    I worked at EventMobi full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    When I started, I was explicit about the desire to learn and grow within the company. My initial position was entry-level, and within three years I was wearing at least 5 different hats -- most of which I was acknowledged for. EventMobi was great for me, as a self-starter, because it gave me the opportunity to learn about a lot of different aspects of the business (and businesses in general), and to try my hand at a variety...

    Cons

    EventMobi, at least when I was working there, was a proper startup. That is, it was the sort of place where your job was kind of amorphous and everyone had to wear a lot of hats. This obviously suited self-starters who were good at managing their own time and keeping busy. It favoured people who were open to learning lots of different things and putting in extra time to flesh out the tasks they liked doing into jobs they...

    Advice to Management

    Not having any management experience myself, it feels odd to try to give anyone advice about it. And, as I mentioned above, I think Bob and Bijan make an honest effort and generally do a good job at making EventMobi a great place to work and grow. Personally, I could have benefited from more real, professional guidance early on in my projects to avoid wasting time and uncertainty. Receiving key feedback at the end of...

    Pros

    If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, are a self-starter and enjoy building new things amongst complexity you'll enjoy your time at EventMobi. EventMobi has given me a chance to learn, stretch my limits and test out my skills in a few different areas and truly it’s up to me to make what I want out of my role. I have worked in a few other companies before so for me it's refreshing not to be boxed in. Given the...

    Cons

    Sadly due to a few poor hires/ junior employees, the company has suffered from having a bit of gossip culture. Some employees do not have enough work experiences to be able to cope with regular workplace nuisances and make matters seem worse than they are. Having said that, I do feel like we are on our way up and looking forward to what's coming.

    Advice to Management

    If we are in this for the long haul I really think we can benefit from 1- Empowerment of staff to experiment with ideas and celebrate failure.2- We need more senior mgmt staff to assist teams with career planning, coaching and guidance.

    Pros

    Free Espresso Some colleagues are really nice

    Cons

    Awful management. Overpriced product. I wrote an awesome review but it got taken down because I put a link to EventMobi's hiring page. Meh.

    Advice to Management

    Bob, how about instead of spending your time writing fake reviews you make some changes to your business.

    -Snacks and coffee -Good downtown location

    Cons

    I'd really love to caution people from working at this company, especially if you're thinking of leaving your current position or taking a job at EventMobi over somewhere else. I'd encourage you to keep looking, as many of the positive reviews here are, in fact, fake. While most of the negative ones may seem dramatized, they're unfortunately true. Having worked at the company, almost everyone complains about how much...

    Advice to Management

    Hire a CEO. Bob - Just be a founder. Step down and let your company flourish under proper management. You can still be involved, you can still be the spokesperson, but please, let someone else do the real job of CEO.

    I have been working at EventMobi

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Cons

    more staffing is needed in some departments as the company continues to grow.

    Advice to Management

    as the company grows, more structure and responsibility is placed upon the management team. making decisions that will shape the company in the long run moreso than the medium term is what will steer the company to continued success.

    Pros

    - Espresso machine - Snacks / breakfast food available - 'Fun' youthful staff albeit a bit vapid and sheep-like

    Cons

    - To the CEO 'corporate transparency' means consistently publicly shaming staff members for little reason -from CTO to Interns- in company-wide meetings & communication platforms, thereby re-enforcing dominance & effectively scaring anyone from wanting to take part in idea-sharing. Thusly mentorship & facilitation of your growth within the company is not possible unless you are 'favourited' by the CEO ( which is a fleeting...

    The people. I've had an opportunity to work with really inspiring, persistent, kind, and talented people. It feels like this has happened not thanks to but despite the atmosphere and management style, though.

    Cons

    The lack of trust, respect and basic empathy by the management. There's nothing more debilitating than feeling like nothing you do is ever good enough. Micro-management and ruling by fear are the name of the game. Have you memorized and recited the words on the slogans yet? If you haven't yet you probably don't fit into our culture and shouldn't be here. Our opaque standards make you feel both included and excluded, ever...
