    I have been working at EventMobi full-time

    Pros

    The work culture and people are definitely what will get you! I've been with EventMobi for a while now, and it still doesn't get old. EventMobi is a growing company with a lot of growth to be had. If you are ambitious, new to the work force and full of ideas and patience, this is a great place to be. That being said, because there is still a lot of growth, if you are experienced and well-seasoned in your career,...

    Cons

    There are a lot of senior people leaving, which as seen in other reviews on here is something that we can be afraid of. This change can be seen as a negative or as a positive since it means restructuring and a new direction in the company. It just depends on how you look at it- if you fear change or not. If you fear change, this is not the company for you. If you embrace change, it is.

    Advice to Management

    Despite what I've read here, I think EventMobi is still figuring it all out in terms of management, and that's where growth happens. Bob started EventMobi with high hopes, and he's been doing a pretty great job. You can tell when he speaks how much he loves this company and tries to translate that to his employees. Bob, keep doing what you're doing and speaking with so much passion. If you are part of the MobiFam, that...

    I have been working at EventMobi full-time for more than 2 years

    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 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...

    Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am happy to hear about the excitement and enjoyment you have had working at EventMobi. And I agree with your concerns about us needing to do a much better job communicating within our teams as to how decisions at the management ...
