      Easily the best place to work

      Pros

      Eventbrite has excellent values that they actually live by. They put their users above all else. Team members are treated like family. Extremely generous PTO and benefits. We are encouraged to take time off to better our communities. There's ample room for growth.

      Cons

      Like anywhere, there are opportunities for improvements in communication between teams and different segments of the business. That said, leadership is always working on ways to improve in this area.

      Pros

      Excellent people, really good company culture. Great CEO!

      Cons

      Company is lacking in diversity, particularly in management. Pay was lower than other companies in the area.

      Pros

      Great office culture, fun people to work with. Challenging problems to solve.

      Cons

      Corporate direction changes with the wind. CFO made $10mm the same year they laid off half the company.

      Thanks for the feedback. No notable changes to the strategy that we shipped last year. Year 2 of the three-3 strategy is upcoming. Best of luck on the next gig - DH

      Pros

      Good People, good balance work/personal, culture around feedback, career oportunities, coworkers around the world (people in Madrid, SF and Nashville), international company, product people embebbed within teams, UX and Data within teams, decision making within team. Facilities are great (if there's a need to go back to office).

      Cons

      The business right now it's messy because of Covid, once it's normal will be great.

      Pros

      The work and office culture were phenomenal; it was a classic tech startup with all the benefits you'd imagine.

      Cons

      This was a business that was going through mountains of changes, so I sat there as plenty of employees were let go and strategies were altered by the hour. If you weren't malleable, you weren't going to cut it.

      Pros

      Honestly, I’m not sure I can find any pros for this outfit. The only thing they have going for them is their reach, but it’s dwindling fast as other companies catch up and surpass them in all regards, culture, product, strategy. Also, you are free to be awful at your job and do almost zero work if the right people (CEO and minions) like you.

      Cons

      Eventbrite is what is known as a sycophantic culture. You MUST drink the very scary orange cool aid aggressively pushed into your face from the CEO all the way down to the sheep like ICs. It’s very disturbing. If you don’t chug it and finish with a cheeky orange grin, you are ostracized. Even worse, if you speak up and/or raise an idea contrary to the company line, you are put out to pasture, ignored, excluded and ultimately made useless. I’ve never seen an organization that is so roundly dysfunctional and brainwashed. The irony is that they champion their “culture,” but it is little more than window dressing, the core of which is forced indoctrination with a splash of frivolous and ultimately valueless “perks.” Leadership is a hot mess and in way over their heads. Strategy is non-existent. Merit is ignored, while high school level cliques and favoritism reign. Again, another irony being that good ideas and novel thoughts are pushed aside despite the dire need for innovation and a fresh perspective. No sour grapes here. I only lasted a few months because I saw the writing on the wall early. Not to mention that they have abandoned some of the very most important players in the event space for who knows what reason after making the pandemic an excuse to cut most of the company lose to make up for horrendous business decisions (TicketFly acquisition). Sound like Silicon Valley disaster? Sound like the type of solid future you’d like to be a part of? You’d be better off joining a cult. No wonder that most of the bright people left or were pushed out. What remains is a weak group of groveling boot lickers. Don’t join this company.

      Bummer you only lasted a few months! It's this type of positive, constructive thinking that society needs more of. Lol. Best of luck to you (and whatever organization is getting these vibes). In the meantime, for the casual reader: our employee engagement (morale) is near a 3-year high. Our totally not sour grapes author here maybe didn't see that employee confidence in the strategy is up 27 points YoY. Great place to be for the right talent! - DH
