its ok
Technology Intern (Former Employee) –  McLean, VASeptember 22, 2018
seems like a cool place to work, very trendy and typical start up vibe. However, they want you to give it your all and work hard. Great place if you want to be in SaaS sales.

Great first job, but not long term
Inquisium Client Success Consultant (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAMay 17, 2018
Cvent is very fast paced so you gain a lot of experience early on. Many of the Cvent policies and practices seem to take advantage of applicants right out of college though.

Great people, excellent leadership team, fun culture
Project Coordinator, Mobile Solutions (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAMay 12, 2018
Cvent is driven by an excellent group of leaders who have the company growing to become the powerhouse in the event technology industry. They provided me with excellent experience in project management, mobile application builds and deployment, and client communication.

The people are great to work with and the office culture is young and vibrant. There are often happy hours and many employees are great friends outside of work.
Pros
work-life balance, office culture, training, career growth
Cons
compensation, repetitiveness of tasks

1/10 would not recommend
Sales Development Associate (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAApril 30, 2018
if you're looking for a place that doesnt care about you as an individual, and wants to squeeze the life out of you, apply here. They will promise a lot, but follow through with very little.

Sells an image to kids straight out of college
Sales Development Representative (Current Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAMarch 26, 2018
They sell their great culture to kids straight out of school, but realistically its vastly different when you start working. Management is more focused on hitting you hitting numbers than actually being strategic and working towards building better relationships with clients and prospects. Seriously underpaid, not competitive compensation at all.

Strong relationships
Onsite Service Desk Engineer (Former Employee) –  Draper, UTFebruary 26, 2018
This company was amazing to work for. The relationships built here were very genuine and strong. team work and collaboration is very fundamental at Cvent. Management is was amazing in the IT Enterprise Services department from the tippy top with CIO and IT Director down to my direct report. No such thing as micromangement. Nothing but trust and support and allowing you to do your job and then some. Great benefits and perks.
Pros
Management, Pay, Benefits, Location
Cons

There is a rule of 45 minimum hours per week for salary employees
Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXFebruary 6, 2018
Salary employees are required to work a minimum of 45 hours per week. If you are sent on a business trip, you are required to share a hotel room with a coworker. Anyone who works remotely is required to provide a reason and at times are shunned for it. Lastly, the demands from management are unrealistic expectations of an employee if that employee is expected to have a personal life outside of work.
Pros
Lots of hours for workaholics
Cons
Lots of hours with below average compensation

Avoid!
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAJanuary 31, 2018
Long hours, poor management, lack of development, lack of career advancement, high turnover. Everyone was expecting to make Cvent their life and they had no regard for personal time or families. If you didn't drink the Kool Aid you weren't going to last. They burned out the whole finance and accounting department in 2 years.

Fun workplace with pin pong table
Intern (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VADecember 5, 2017
Doesn't have competitive pay. Work hard, play hard company culture. Millennial workplace that offers entry level sales skills and event management skills.

Fast-paced and challenging work environment with low pay
ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAOctober 9, 2017
The culture is great, but you will put in a ton of hours for a much lower pay than is deserved. If you stick it out long enough, you can reach a point where you are making a comfortable salary. If culture is more important than a high salary, this may be a good fit. Otherwise, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

No direction or advancement opportunities
Senior Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAOctober 2, 2017
Managers are not trained they are simply promoted by tenure without displaying actual management skills. Terrible interpersonal skills creating a crab in the barrel environment.

Market Leader / Good Tech but in a very "post- post-" phase of maturity
Sales (Current Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VASeptember 8, 2017
Overall a good workplace and innovative products. Company is post IPO, post acquisition and getting bogged down with a lot of new processes, as is typical at this late stage.

Sales becoming more and more viewed as a cost center.
Pros
Good leadership, Robust Marketing, Recognizable brand
Cons
Below Average Comp

A Good Place to Start
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  McLean, VASeptember 2, 2017
Cvent is a good place to start your career. There are tons of opportunities to take on new projects, meet and work with other teams, and move up in your own career track. However, management is often so hectic that expectations are unclear and priorities shift day to day.
Pros
Flexible hours, great people, fun perks
Cons
stressful, average pay, long hours

Strong advice- do not take application support engineer or software support engineer role
Application Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAAugust 10, 2017
I was with cvent for more than 2 years in application support team. If you do not get a job anywhere then consider this position but start looking for better opportunities immediately after joining. The team is underrated within the company but the reality is extreme workloads and low pay. On average expect to work 9-10hrs per day with no appreciation or enough compensation. The manager(Eric) is a workaholic, does not have personal life and just expects everyone to work 10hrs with low pay. On top of that there is partiality within the team.

Other teams are far better within the technology department. So if you get an offer in any other team then you might be better off.

OK place
Senior systems analyst (Former Employee) –  McLean, VAJuly 11, 2017
OK place. Depends on which group you work in.

Some groups are nastier than others.

Pay is OK. The starting salary is low, but the increases are good.

Merger with Lanyon and Cvent make any critique meaningless
Associate Java Developer (Former Employee) –  Draper, UTMay 23, 2017
Vista bought Cvent and then merged Lanyon into Cvent.
Thus, Lanyon ceased to exist as a reviewable entity. Nevertheless I appreciated the opportunities Lanyon afforded me and appreciated the open environment where I think most employees felt comfortable and at ease with management and were able to freely vent concerns and complaints. Lanyon pushed for positive reinforcement and feedback between employees, which I didn't need, but appreciated.
Pros
Frequent free lunches and Management tries to be transparent
Cons
Layoffs seem to happen randomly and pay and benefits are slightly below market average

Not the best
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  USAMay 14, 2017
They have a lot to work on with this company. Not many positives, and management doesn't seem to understand the product they are in charge of. Clients are highly unsatisfied due to unqualified individuals being hired for positions with no training.

Good Place To Work For Experience, But Not To Advance Your Career
Service Desk Associate (Current Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAMay 2, 2017
You learn and do a lot. You may deal with some unreasonable things as far as end users and upper management. It may take a long time to get a raise as well.
Pros
Friendly Environment
Cons
Wants you to do a lot], but do not want to pay overtime
