    I have been working at EventMobi full-time

    Pros

    Great start up feel and innovative attitude. A lot of responsibility is distributed throughout the company. It's growing fast - a lot of employees that have been here less than a year.

    Cons

    Some growing pains! But nothing I haven't seen at other growing companies that are still figuring out organization/structure.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep on delegating responsibility to those you trust and leading the company overall in the right direction :)

    I have been working at EventMobi full-time for more than 3 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 3 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 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...

    Advice to Management

    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.

    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.
