    I have been working at EventMobi full-time for more than 4 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.

    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...

    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 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...
