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

    Pros

    During my application process, I read just about every review on Eventbrite's Glassdoor page - and from the minute I walked in for my interview, I saw the positive vibes in action. I've now been with the company for a little over two months, and every day I wake up even more excited to come to work. There are many, many pros to working at Eventbrite (hello, endless La Croix, delicious and healthy catered lunch, employer-paid...

    Cons

    Not really a con but a general comment - it's not all ping pong tables and free snacks. I've found the work/life balance to be great (and that balance is VERY encouraged), but this is not a place for people who just want punch the clock. However, if you're looking for a place where you will be pushed out of your comfort zone, encouraged to dig deep and learn about many different facets of a business, Eventbrite is it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I couldn't imagine a better place to work!

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

    Pros

    Eventbrite has an incredible workplace environment. I feel genuinely cared about and valued not only within my own team and office but across the company as a whole. My coworkers are my closest friends and I spend so much time with them outside of work. The company is growing at a rapid rate and it is incredible to be a part of. I truly feel that I am contributing to that growth in a very real way. From my manager...

    Cons

    Very difficult to find Cons. With any growing company, when changes and growth occur there can be some shifting in responsibilities within roles. Managers are effective in communicating these changes with the altering expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up everything that you are doing! I feel very supported and heard.

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

    Pros

    - Flexible work-from-home and vacation policies - Excellent benefits and perks (low-cost health insurance, daily catered lunch, wellness stipend to name a few). - The best collective group of people that I've ever worked with. Intelligent, empathetic, and innovative. Learned how to collaborate, fail, and lead through working with such talented folks. - Constant growth and change = Unparalleled professional development.

    Cons

    - There could be more intentional professional development for EB employees. Change and growth allow us to discover and develop our skillsets, but I often felt that the org could take a more active and intentional role in professional development. - Direct pay seems slightly under market value. Overall compensation package plus perks seem fair, all things considered.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on your people, developing their skills, and ensuring they understand and are realizing their purpose at Eventbrite.

    Pros

    - Catered lunch 4 days a week

    Cons

    Of course, a lot of these reviews are biased based on people's experiences. If you're an engineer, I would encourage you to carefully read all of the reviews and consider who wrote these reviews before you make a decision on whether or not to join this company. - Even though I had expressed concerns about my career growth and offered my help to come up with a path for growth multiple times, my manager never once discussed...

    Revamp the entire review process. Talk to the individual contributors and skip the managers for feedback. Change engineering leadership.

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

    Pros

    -$100 per month commute allowance - free snacks, fruits and coffee -free catered lunch 4 times a week. Quality is mediocre and options are limited if you are vegan/vegetarian. -nice espresso coffee machine - modern, big office - you can park yourself here and work for your pay stub.

    Cons

    Most managers don't have any prior experience in people management. Please do yourself a favor and review profiles of Engineering managers at EvenBrite before considering taking a job here. Be careful of not hurting manager's ego even accidentally and unintentionally, or be ready to be terminated at any minute. Seeing your colleagues suddenly getting disappeared is a norm here. Communicating indirectly behind the back...

    Advice to Management

    To middle management: Try introspecting at least once to find out root causes instead of blaming failures. Take some training in people management if you are inexperienced.or if you need it. Your job is to help your team resolving blockers so better start running 1:1s with agenda and have an action items out of each meeting. 1:1s isn't meant for gossips and finding scapegoats. To top management - Hope you know what...

    I have been working at Eventbrite

    Pros

    I've worked in tiny startups my entire engineering career, and was rather nervous entering into what I believe to be "corporate" status. My largest concern was getting lost in the shuffle, and my product not mattering to anybody nearly as much as it mattered to me. Our company, Queue, was acquired by Eventbrite because of our ability to build so much with such a small team (currently, 3 engineers). The two attributes...

    Cons

    There is a singular con (I've been working here for six months), and I don't believe it to be a fault of Eventbrite, but the fault of a company with any size: meetings. As I've stated before, I've worked in tiny companies. To push an idea forward, somebody had to say something out loud. In a room of 10 people max, it always gets heard. With a company of 300+ in one office you have to schedule a meeting. That meeting...

    The culture here is amazing. Everyone is so supportive, welcoming, and talented! Leadership is phenomenal, and they do a fantastic job of not only encouraging you to be your best self, but also providing you with the organizational foundation to do so. The benefits are also top notch--Unlimited paid time off, catered lunches, wellness stipend, work from home option, and GREAT health care! This isn't just another job--the...

    Cons

    There really aren't any negatives in my opinion. For Customer Experience roles, the work schedule might be less than ideal for some because support is 24/7, but it certainly isn't unmanageable by any means, and there is plenty of flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do. Your dedication to your team is incomparable, and we appreciate you all so much!

    Cons

    • We've grown quickly and also change/pivot strategy quickly. These decisions affect our product and work and can be confusing for some (both Britelings and our customers). • It doesn't seem like we always listen to feedback from our internal teams and external customers. While our product is always evolving, we still haven't made progress against many of our customers' pain points.

    Advice to Management

    • When making product decisions, give more weight and focus on what our customers and Customer Service teams are saying. It feels like feedback goes nowhere at times because our product has already made design and feature decisions based on financials and what our Sales team can work best with. It should be a little more balanced and take into account customer feedback and pain.

    Pros

    Office is fantastic, cool people, tons of perks, unlimited PTO, plenty of autonomy and room for self guided opportunities. DOGS AND CATERED LUNCHES!!

    Cons

    Not small enough to retain that scrappy startup vibe, not big enough to be very organized. Not a whole lot of room for growth within the company, as they tend to hire new managers as opposed to promoting them internally.

    Advice to Management

    Stay cool

    - Bumps along the road in transitioning from a startup mindset to a more established company regarding quality vs speed. - Some managers are less experienced.
