    I have been working at SeatGeek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Undeniable and unrelenting focus on user experience in product, customer service, business. Truly all aspects of SeatGeek
     - Absolute amazing culture. People are all incredibly smart and great to work with, and hang out with too :-)
     - Awesome benefits including a $120/mo/person ticket-buying perk that reaffirms SeatGeek's commitment to building (and using) an exemplary experience
     - Extremely transparent. One of the most impressive things is the complete openness in financials, board meetings, product developments, and business developments (e.g. knowing internally about MLS deal throughout the process)

    Cons

    Our cold brew ordering pace is not able to keep up with our cold brew drinking pace. Thus, I must get my cold brew from La Colombe on the first floor. Sounds like a joke, but it's honestly incredibly difficult to conjure up things that are negative about working at SeatGeek. Maybe the coconut water is better at Hooli?

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on user experience, openness/transparency in everything you do, and being honest and humble.

    I have been working at SeatGeek (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Incredible people to work with — I learn something new every day
    - A culture that values balance between work and life
    - Low boundaries between roles, so you aren't siloed into one particular project or area of the product
    - A management team with an ambitious long-term vision

    Cons

    Occasionally the cold brew runs out, but luckily there's a coffee shop downstairs to help us out in these dire times of need.

    Cons

    Sometimes when we are playing fooseball, the ball gets stuck or "foosed" and neither team can kick it.

    Pros

    - Almost every single employee at SeatGeek is exceptionally passionate about the product and truly believes in what they're doing - very refreshing to be around.
    - Each team has such a diverse set of team members. The dev team has grad students out of the best compsci programs but also has hired people before they even finish college.
    - The company's leaders are constantly asking for feedback and actively engaged in making SeatGeek a better place to work and a better product overall
    - The benefits are awesome, employees are treated very well

    Cons

    - I can't really think of a strong con, the only thing that I wish there was more of is people from experienced backgrounds. We have a lot of young people who are exceptionally bright, but don't have years of experience at other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work - working here is awesome!

    Pros

    First and foremost, the culture is incredible. Everyone is supportive and encouraging, but also brilliant, and I learn every day from my colleagues. SeatGeek really hires the best of the best, and you'll soak up a lot from your colleagues here.

    The company is getting bigger, but they really make sure that every employee knows what's happening at the company - they're really all about full transparency.

    SeatGeek also really encourages you to find your strengths, and grow into strengths.

    Really the best place I've ever worked....

    Cons

    It's always scary at a start up, because you never know how quickly things can change - but that's also what makes it so exciting!

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn new skills
    The company is young and there's still plenty of room to grow professionally
    The industry is awesome -- live events rock
    The work is challenging and ever changing

    Cons

    Company is young in absolute age and employee age -- could benefit from some more veteran experience but that's sure to come with time
    I would say that vacation time is a bit lower than people in my peer group

    Pros

    Product-focused company where everyone believes in the mission. People here are incredibly smart and also incredibly fun to work with. Learning and collaboration are encouraged and the leadership is transparent.

    Cons

    Office can be crowded/chaotic at times which can limit productivity, but we are moving to a nice new space soon so that should improve.

    Even as they've grown SeatGeek has continued to foster a friendly startup culture. Everyone cares a lot about the product, so you get a cool mix of software, sports, and music interests. It's an incredibly smart team with lots of fast-moving projects.

    Cons

    We've outgrown our space but are moving soon.
