    I worked at Eventful full-time

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Endless snacks, sodas, and free lunches on Fridays. Friendly culture and dynamic startup-like environment. Good benefits for a small company. Great growth opportunities for starting careers. In the end, it's the people that make your time here enjoyable.

    Cons

    Low company morale. Regular turnover. Losing great coworkers can be demotivating. Not much focus on employee career growth, so you have to be self-motivated if you want to progress.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the All Hands meetings. It keeps us in touch with why we are working so hard.

    Pros

    Excellent relaxed work environment. No stuffy offices and good work/life balance

    Must be a self-starter and motivated to advance. Still sort of in start-up company mode

    I have been working at Eventful full-time

    Pros

    Great team of smart engineers that accomplished a lot. An agile and flexible environment with plenty of work to do.

    Cons

    After the CBS aquisition the culture of the office lost a lot of it's flavor, and there was a lack of HR/Career advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Give better opportunities to grow in your career and minimize the impact of the mega corporation on your team.


  4. "Pretty good."

    Pros

    Casual work environment. Casual dress code. Flexible hours to accommodate life outside of work.

    Cons

    The commute. I don't make enough money to live close to work (Del Mar is pretty dang expensive!) so I have to drive and it takes forever!

    Pros

    Free food on Fridays, startup environment, nice people, everyone is respectful and fond of each other, intelligent tech employees, snacks and drinks

    Cons

    low compensation, no motivation, no career growth path, found myself doing nothing some of the time, no information on company's future or even present status of business

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees more up-to-date with where the company is going in the future and how they can see themselves advancing within the company.

    I worked at Eventful full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Office culture and set up was hip and cool. Company sponsored lunches, snacks and drinks galore in the Kitchen. Youthful office and CEO.

    Cons

    Recently acquired by CBS local, time will tell how the infrastructure and the team in the corporate office and their sales managers across the country will be integrated. Some Senior leaders lacked focus and understanding of different industries. Other team members lacked enthusiasm and care for the product deliverables and were challenged to meet demands/needs. Mature company that still seemed stuck in a start up mentality at times.

    I have been working at Eventful full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I am still as excited to work for Eventful today as I was on my first day. If you work hard and perform well, this company rewards you. Leadership is excellent, and focused on delivering return on investment to investors, and rewards to employees for their hard work. Eventful is one of the few technology companies in San Diego, it continues to win awards for its technology and produces an entertaining and informative website and mobile app. If you're into technology and you want to start your career, or advance your career opportunities - you should look no further than Eventful. Excellent benefits - so rare these days, great work/life balance. Plus where else do you get so many free snacks, and free lunches on Fridays!

    Cons

    If you are looking for a simple 9-5 job and just collecting your pay check, you will be exposed quickly. Like most small/medium sized companies - Eventful needs talented and committed staff and management. You won't earn quite as much as you would for the equivalent job in the Bay Area, but there are no equivalent companies like this in San Diego.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve communication with the staff. Senior Management are very busy, so employees are expected to be somewhat self-reliant, this is no bad thing!
