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

    Pros

    EventMobi is a great place to explore your role and grow within the organization. Everyone working at EventMobi had an a great outlook on work and life and have incredible positive attitudes. Teams go the extra mile and the friendships go beyond just going for a lunch. Everyone is willing to learn and grow and the company is open to making mistakes and taking risks, analyzing these and trying something completely different....

    Cons

    Not every environment is for everyone. If you do not love start-ups and organizations that are willing to change and try different things this company will not be for you. If you love start-up and lean organization with leaders who will mentor you it may be the company for you. This company is fast-paced and idea generation is valued and needed- if you are someone who likes to do the bare minimum your role will not lead...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the SkiMobi & CampMobi and facilitate people in Mix-in mingles they work. I made friends in engineering from a Mix & Mingle that I would not really hang out with before. Continue to put money into your people, perks and events- these motivate employees and make them happy.

    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 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...

    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.
