My most recent experience
Sales Executive (Current Employee), McLean, VANovember 5, 2013
Pros: ambitious young individuals
Cons: no training or ramp up for individuals coming in with experiencce
Cvent is a great company for many people, and there is a reason they mostly hire from within. Coming into that company with experience is a much different ballgame. My actual day was something that was not described during my interview process. The day to day operations, the management, and requirements were something entirely different than what I – more... had been told before coming in.
It was a very young company, with high energy. It was a cold calling business. They hammer out calls all day long, and on a typical day, the average person would make roughly 70 calls.
The hardest part of the job was finding my place in the company. I learned how to work with much younger professionals, and how to manage individuals right out of college. – less

Don't expect to have a career here
Marketing Team (Former Employee), McLean, VAJuly 18, 2013
The best thing about working at Cvent is the people you work with. Mostly young, energetic people that are eager to learn. Too bad all Cvent teaches you is about selling Cvent products. Company has no vision, reason and innovation. People with different ideas are shot down by management that has mentality stuck in 1999 business model. Talented people – more... are afraid of Cvent because of their draconian 2-year bond, that is not even legal. However, Cvent will do everything it can do get those $6K out of 20-plus year old.

Very few stay here more than 4 years. Company has no interest in advancing and training people in their fields, you're required to stay as long as it takes to get things "fixed."

Etc. It might be a good first job out of college, but not a career.

Pros:
-good health benefits
-location
-compensation is "ok" depending on department
-growing company

Cons:
-you're stuck at Cvent for 2 years, no questions asked
-no 401k matching
-frequent over-time/weekend expectations with no reward
-poor work/life balance
-poor management
-asking for tools you need is like pulling teeth – less

Soul-sucking work environment
Product Consultant at Cvent (Former Employee), McLean, VAMarch 12, 2013
Pros: no premium health insurance, company happy hours and holiday party are nice
Cons: competitive sales-focused culture, bad management, makes you pay if you try to quit before your contract is up
I was really miserable when I worked at this company. They offer poor work-life balance and micromanage their employees. They make you sign a contract upon being hired, and if you try to quit before your contract is up you have to pay the company an exorbitant amount of money (something they consider a "training fee" but honestly just doesn't feel ethical). – more... The average age of the company must be 27, everyone is young and thus there is a lot of inter-office gossip and water cooler talk. Compensation is lousy, but other benefits are okay (no premium medical, at least when I worked there, but no company 401k match). – less
