    I worked at Eventbrite full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company was still <500 employees, but I loved the company culture.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, great office perks, creative team and cool industry.

    Growing pains associated with a scaling company: some disorganization at the senior level can give individual contributors whiplash and cause burnout.

    I have been working at Eventbrite full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I really like the mission - To connect people through live experiences. The people in the office all friendly, and they all working hard for their respective teams. Everyone here is very smart and everyone you meet teaches you a little bit more about the nuances of the business. Leadership is very passionate, and are working hard to push the business forward. Julia Hartz addresses employee issues and she is a very approachable CEO. The business itself is very interesting because it is a two-way marketplace, those who want experience working in both b2b and b2c will welcome the challenge.

    Cons

    I do wish there was a more specific training program to understand how Eventbrite as a business works and detailed explanations of the mission of every team. Every team does seem to be in the same goal of advancing the business, but everyone also has specific metrics they need to hit to be credited for advancing the business - which can be confusing.

    Hi there! Thank you for the feedback. I agree that our current structure, which optimizes growth through strategic initiatives that drive impact on the broader business, may cause us to not “zoom” out enough. Totally actionable - so, thank you! - Julia Hartz, CEO

    I have been working at Eventbrite

    Pros

    - Really talented and super friendly workforce - Upper management really cares about its employees - Lots of transparency - Excellent career growth opportunities - Good/Great perks (unlimited time-off, 7 meals a week, tech company office) - Awesome learning opportunities (weekly subject matter expert chats, career advice, etc) - They take their culture and values seriously - Hiring is tough, but it ensures they let the best in the door

    Cons

    - The company is in profitability mode, so don't expect weekly company sponsored happy hours or extravagant off-sites. For most this might be par for the course, but coming from a company that was, admittedly, a little over the top with that stuff, Eventbrite just tends to be mindful about how they spend

    Pros

    Kind teammates - People at Eventbrite are just nice people. Period. That's the culture. What's more - they're happy people! No one here is grumpy or walks around with a cloud over their head. Example 1: within the first hour of my first day there, a stranger I had bumped into in the kitchen wished me a fantastic day so genuinely, I was almost speechless. Example 2: Julia Hartz herself introduced herself to me on my first day because she said she "didn't recognize my face." I cannot speak more highly of her focus on culture at EB, especially because she leads by example. Incredible work ethic - At Eventbrite, work-life balance is treated as a necessity, not a luxury. Most of the office is empty by 5:30. You take time off when you need it - they trust you to get your work done. That being said, my teammates at Eventbrite are some of the most hard-working people I have ever had the privilege of working beside. They are sharp, straightforward, rational, and honest. Clear and consistent communication - Detailed documentation of meetings, proposals, goals, mistakes, successes. While this was never seen as a priority at other companies I've worked for, it is crucial to communicating effectively and meeting goals at Eventbrite. Career growth - Even though I am a contractor, my manager has asked for my overarching career goals and has incorporated them into my work. Overall, it seems that the company and its management are invested in hiring good people, training good people, and helping them grow.

    Cons

    Honestly, none that I can think of.

    I have been working at Eventbrite full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The folks at the company are generally super smart, caring, trustworthy, and just the kind of people that you want to hang out with. There's a good mix of employees from various backgrounds (both professionally and personally) and they tend to be bright, friendly, and incredibly interesting. Work/life balance is highly valued and (usually) totally feasible. The leadership tends to clearly communicate objectives across the company. Those objectives are sound and responsible in the current business climate.

    Cons

    There's a lot of stagnation. Come here for the experience and the name. But, don't come here expecting to make bank, grow into a higher position, or collaborate with other teams. Salaries are not competitive and either are the career advancement opportunities.

    Thanks for the honest feedback. Career development is an area of focus for us this year as we grow in business and talent. Our goal is to collectively create an environment where every Briteling can thrive, grow, and gain new insight/perspective/skill during their tenure at Eventbrite. Personally, I'm committed to helping build the "Eventbrite constellation" that gives insight to all teammates as to where they could gain more skill and insight -- whether that be by direct internal and external mentorship, coaching, peers, new business areas, and/or cross-team collaboration. -- Julia Hartz, Co-Founder & President

    Pros

    Fun environment, great people, room to grow. Met many people I would gladly have a beer with any day of the week.

    Cons

    While everyone is very positive, I found it hard to get critical feedback from managers. Interview processes didn't scale well past 200 people.
