    I worked at EventMobi full-time

    Pros

    When I first started at EventMobi, I was excited to wake up to go to work every morning. Some of my best friendships have been born from EventMobi and (almost) everyone you work with is welcoming. In terms of the actual job, you dabble in both the event industry and tech sphere. Your customer base is fun and EventMobi produces a product that's actually decent. If you're starting out in your career, this is a great...

    Cons

    From the time I started to the time I left, most 'veterans' had left and the culture really took a hit. The environment feels very adolescent and the gossip is facilitated from the top down. In terms of your professional progression, once you hit 6-9 months with the company, you've probably learnt everything you possible can. The skill development and career opportunities here are very limited and the pay structure...

    Advice to Management

    You built EventMobi from the ground up (which is very impressive)- revisit that entrepreneurial spirt and be a team that your employees are inspired and motivated by. Your human resources are your most valuable resource - treat them as such. Create (and practice) a proper process of accountability for executive decisions so that employees don't feel that they are puppets on a string just waiting to be cut from...

    I worked at EventMobi

    Pros

    -Company culture (outside of management) was overall really positive, this is a great place to work as a student in terms of culture. -The name means something, in the Toronto start-up world EventMobi has some recognition and it can be an asset on your resume. -Perks like work socials, free snacks, catered lunch options and free booze are a definite plus.

    Cons

    -Salary for an intern was crap, you are almost guaranteed to be paid better elsewhere (especially if you're from Waterloo). -Job description did NOT match the work that was actually given. The job I took was far superior to the job I ended up doing. -Management was a bit restrictive in terms of the opportunities and projects that interns were able to take on. We were stuck with our tedious responsibilities, and there...

    Advice to Management

    -Use your interns as a resource, don't hire them solely to do the work no one else wants to do. -There's nothing wrong with the fact that you are growing and changing rapidly, but people are getting lost in the mix and can suffer as a result. - Calling out an employee for a mistake over company-wide communication channels doesn't exactly build positive morale, and it's especially upsetting when it comes from senior...

    Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. I wish you included more details on what you did that you felt was restrictive and tedious. If you could contact me directly, I would love to learn more from your feedback. As you know, we are highly supportive of providing interns ...

    I have been working at EventMobi full-time

    Pros

    There are many things about EventMobi that are really great, like the people and culture. Everyone is welcoming and friendly, helpful, and generally pretty down to earth. Is everyone the smartest, or most accomplished, people I've worked with in their fields? No, but everyone is genuinely working hard, fairly intelligent, and tries their best at what they do. Working with my team everyday is a genuine pleasure, and it...

    Cons

    One word: Management. Or should I say, lack thereof. If you're a new grad, someone early in their career, or new to the startup world, you'll find EventMobi to be a really fun and seemingly well-run place. If you're someone that is more on the senior end, have been around the block a bit in terms of experience or different companies, you'll see the ineptitude in leadership at the executive level. The company has been...

    Advice to Management

    Pay people better. Stop micomanaging. Focus. Have direction. Get Bob out of the day to day. Build an actual management team, and not just "Bob says jump, you say how high" kind of leadership.

    I worked at EventMobi

    Pros

    - Fun environment, young culture - People passionate about the work they do - Free food! Beer every friday.

    Cons

    This is a great place to work if you still want to have fun and you're not interested in career growth or a company that pays you well because you're not going to get it here. There's no true promotion here and people get title changes so frequently because that will make you feel like you got promoted but it's just a morale boost. This place wouldn't be so bad to work if the CEO wasn't so crazy. Not only does...

    Advice to Management

    Let the managers and directors do their job, that's why you hired them. Stop getting so involved, you're only hurting the company.

    I worked at EventMobi

    Pros

    - Good company culture - Company perks - Great Onboarding - Some Learning opportunities

    Cons

    Cons - No matter how much experience you had on your resume, our team was very underpaid. Being in sales, our account framework was divided up by industry demographic, so if you got assigned a demographic that didn't have a lot of budget, it was extremely hard to make money. All teams had the same high target to hit, which is extremely unachievable for some of the demographics. - During campaigns, product launches,...

    Advice to Management

    Formalize a better management structure, start hiring more senior people to manage the departments, provide mentorship opportunities, and treat your employees with respect. I would only recommend to be at this company if you are fresh out of school, and have no expectations in salary, and don't understand what proper management looks like. If you do have experience, I highly recommend that you stay away. There are several...

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

    Pros

    - Training. This company is growing quickly, but they keep their employees up to speed. You'll know the status of every department, and any new projects they are working on. - Constructive Criticism. With weekly 1-on-1's management helps you be the best you can be. They are also open to any ideas/input you have in regards to the product and processes. It works both ways. - Perks! Hover-boards and scooters to get around...

    Pros

    - Great work environment - Lots of learning opportunities - Eager teammates - Full benefits and incentives (Friday Foursies anyone?)

    Cons

    Not really a con, but still transitioning in a lot of areas so there is constant change. If you don't adapt well it might not be for you.

    Advice to Management

    Just make sure there always chances to keep learning and developing careers!

    Pros

    The culture is amazing here, it's a place you actually want to go to every day. They also invest in your learning and career development. In the past, management structures had been lacking but new Management structures have been very helpful for bringing clarity and daily focus to each department.

    Cons

    As a startup company that has grown really fast, there are the usual growing pains associated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path you are on and communicate everything to all staff along the way so that we know what the future holds and where we plan to be. Overall, EventMobi is a winner.
