    Pros

    Cannot think of any pros when you work with Cvent. It is just an economically glorified institution that has an American Indian CEO & a so-called BPO set up in India where they find extremely cheap labor.

    Cons

    1) You lose control over your work-life balance. 2) They can lay you off anytime they feel. 3) The salary structure they have is nothing but a huge hoax that is base upon fake HR skills. 4) They have a dedicated team to force you to resign & is called the HRBP. A guy in this department named Vibhor Bhargav specializes in luring you into the company's policies trap. 5) They laid me off on May 21st & re-hired me on October 5th during all this COVID was going on. The irony is, I don't have my re-hire offer letter from the company yet. They are highly insecure about the possibilities of you getting through mentoring. 6) Whichever meeting they conduct, the CEO of Cvent will kill you with his money discussion skills. The only thing he has to show off is how much money Cvent made or is about to make. 7) Their product is the worst part that depresses you to the extreme & makes you think that you don't know anything in this world. 8) If you are a female employee working on an associate position, you better be aware of all the office politics that might lead you to an inappropriate career decision. 9) They use SaleForce as their CRM & in there, they have such a worthless plugin known as "The Timer." They will use this timer thing to deduct all your numbers when it comes to productivity & efficiency. NOTE: THEY DON'T MICROMANAGE PEOPLE. 10) If you are joining Cvent, please beware of their Employment Bond, which is on a non-judicial stamp paper, & will haunt you for the next 2 & a half years whenever you think of leaving or absconding Cvent. They take a signed cheque from you, which is for Rs 80,000/- & they threaten to encash this cheque if you leave before the locking period. 11) The leaders here have very poor people management skills. They treat you like a robot that is programmed to please their customers & do nothing else. They will exploit you till your last breath & then at the time of appraisal, they find N number of excuses to keep you away from good numbers.
