Senior Accounts Payable Associate (Current Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – June 5, 2018
This review is specifically about the finance department. A typical day at Cvent is filled with meetings and lots of work. There is never a dull moment and there is always something to do. I have learned a lot in a short amount of time, due to the fast paced environment. The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the camaraderie among my team specifically. Although there is a keg in the office, and a ping pong table and corn hole, I have yet to use any of it because of the amount of work and expectations of senior management. The communication in the finance department is terrible. There is so much room for improvement here. Senior management does not listen to the concerns of their employees and gives unreasonable goals for the resources provided- or lack thereof. Senior management does not support their employees. The work-life balance in the finance department needs to be improved quite a bit.

Great people, excellent leadership team, fun culture
Project Coordinator, Mobile Solutions (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – May 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.
work-life balance, office culture, training, career growth
Sales Development Representative (Current Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – March 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.
Onsite Service Desk Engineer (Former Employee) – Draper, UT – February 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.
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.
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – January 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.
Fast-paced and challenging work environment with low pay
ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – October 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.
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – September 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.
Strong advice- do not take application support engineer or software support engineer role
Application Support Engineer (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – August 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.

Merger with Lanyon and Cvent make any critique meaningless
Associate Java Developer (Former Employee) – Draper, UT – May 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.
Frequent free lunches and Management tries to be transparent
Layoffs seem to happen randomly and pay and benefits are slightly below market average
Business Analyst (Current Employee) – USA – May 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.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – March 14, 2017
Cvent is a great place to start right after college, but slowly yet surely you will find that you will have a lot more opportunity for both growth and salary somewhere else. Put in your 18 months and then start looking elsewhere, but it will be hard to go as the people there are amazing.
