    I have been working at Eventbrite full-time

    Pros

    Free lunch and dinner on certain days

    Cons

    1. There is a hierarchy. The employees are supposed to do whatever they are told to. Even they said they welcome any comments and encourage any questions. 2. Super low salary. kind of indicates they don't value people

    I worked at Eventbrite full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Eventbrite offers many benefits for employees to take advantage of

    Cons

    If you are in the support teams you're unable to take advantage of many of those features. We do not get holidays off, and the unlimited PTO doesn't apply to us

    Thank you for your feedback, it has sparked a valuable conversation amongst our leadership team regarding differing departmental policies. There are learnings that we're applying not just to the team here in Nashville, but also to our smaller teams around the globe as they go through exciting stages of growth and development. If you're up for sharing more detail about your experience, I'd love to chat, and encourage you to reach out via email. -Lydia Klein, Senior Manager Customer Experience

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

    Pros

    A very welcoming and fun culture with opportunities to grow and learn. Everyone here is very passionate about all aspects of live events and believes in our mission. Great work-life balance. Hard working colleagues who care.

    Cons

    No clear path of how to be promoted within and what my career path looks like at Eventbrite. Lack of meeting rooms and quiet places in work in the SF office. The office tends to feel chaotic.

    I have been working at Eventbrite full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great career opportunities here - lots of intracompany mobility. There are a lot of really tenured engineers at Eventbrite because people like the work culture, their coworkers, and with all of the opportunities within the company there's always an interesting next project.

    Cons

    Dev environment and release process need improvements. There's still a lot of work to be done to break out of the monolithic codebase.

    Pros

    * Executives truly care about their employees and speak authentically to us * Nice selection of benefits * Excellent team and culture * Work life balance is real * Career mobility is real * Our business is unusually tangible: tickets and live experience which lead to feeling a good sense of accomplishment from the work we do

    Cons

    * Like most tech companies, or any companies, YMMV depending on team/manager.

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

    Pros

    A driven, relatively transparent company which pays attention and cares for its employees happiness. Lots of opportunities to bond with your team and do fun things to break up your work day. One of the best jobs I’ll ever have! Had a great manager, but can’t say that for everyone. Great work life balance and perks.

    Cons

    Pay is not great unless you’re a hustler. I encourage anyone looking for a job there to hustle their worth because Eventbrite will often under pay. They should strive to pay above market rate.

    Thank you for being a great part of our story! I appreciate the feedback you have on pay. While we want Britelings to openly advocate for their career growth, we also want to be fair in pay, equity, and benefits — an important part of the whole package. — Julia Hartz, CEO

    Pros

    The culture, environment, and people in the Nashville office are amazing. The office has easily doubled in size and the culture hasn't changed a bit. The leaders genuinely care about you as a person and you'll never feel like you're "just another number" here. I can honestly say that I don't see myself leaving anytime soon.

    Cons

    The compensation should be re-evaluated due to the rising cost of living in Nashville, but the benefits and perks are amazing!

    Strong, hard-working workforce that is committed to the success of the company. Amazing office with tons of amenities.
