    I worked at Cvent full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Infrastructure is really good plus they pay you well. Reggie has worked really hard to raise this brand.

    Cons

    Company lacks strong and knowledgeable leadership. And yes nepotism exist here as well. All managers/directors/sr managers are home grown and thinks they know the best. Outsider is not happily welcomed. Also favouritism is leader's favourite game against talent. No structure interview process and also lenghthy one. They interview as if they are hiring for IAS position or for NASA. When it comes to internal politics, nothing can beat Cvent. Managers are not bothered about their subordinates and their performance but takes out all grudges/issues during performance appraisals. HR department is good for nothing, they just use diplomatic answers and doesn't come out with a solution as they are just puppets of business

    Pros

    * Decent pay * Good tech stack * Technical learning * Office infrastructure

    Cons

    * With almost everyone working from home due to COVID, the sheer level of micro management is too high. * Measuring a developer's work with the number of lines of code is BS. * Variable pay in the CTC.
