  1. "Problems at Vancouver office potentially saved by Eventbrite brand, but history of toxic culture and high turnover"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC

      I worked at Eventbrite full-time

      Pros

      - Eventbrite has a positive brand and culture and will likely try to improve local reputation. - Fun space to work in: events.

      Cons

      Do extra research and reference checks if you're looking at a job at this office. While Eventbrite has a workplace brand of being inclusive, diverse, and supportive, this office has a reputation of something quite different. The Eventbrite Vancouver office came from the acquisition of a Vancouver startup called Picatic. That team and its leadership are still intact there, but was wrought with high turnover and toxic workplace...

      At Eventbrite, we strive to create a culture of open dialogue and feedback, so I really appreciate you taking the time to share this with us. While I can't personally speak to the specifics of Picatic's culture and office environment in the past, I can say that we have made and continue ...

      Pros

      Fun atmosphere, great office perks, creative team and cool industry.

      Cons

      Growing pains associated with a scaling company: some disorganization at the senior level can give individual contributors whiplash and cause burnout.

      Cons

      - We're growing fast so office space and communal working/hangout space is becoming an issue.

      I worked at Eventbrite full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Perks are good. Office location in the city .

      Cons

      Fake enthusiastic office atmosphere. Company culture that praises the CEO and the company - not for everybody as the office is small and with less employees as in a big corporation where the employees are more diverse and opinion allowed. So it´s nothing for genuine people as you have to maintain the spirit 24/7 . Mainly serving the English markets (US/UK/NZ/AUS) it don´t matter in which language you have been hired.

      Advice to Management

      Try to be more genuine even it can be hard as you have to follow these religious company culture even harder I suppose. Have courage and integrity what I suppose is not appreciated under those religious circumstances.

      Pros

      Great work/life balance Most of the teams still has great culture

      Cons

      Acquisition of TicketFly resulted with total mess of organization structure, with many executive and directive post doubled just to squeeze in the people from TF that EB was contractually obligated to keep. Joining teams from different pay scales resulted in awkward situations, when more experienced engineers have much lower pay scale than their peers from TF.

      Advice to Management

      Clean up the org structure, establish simple and transparent chain of responsibility.

        I have been working at Eventbrite full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Work/life balance, stocked kitchen, they let (almost) everyone travel to multiple international offices.

        Cons

        The company went public before it was ready. They've severely missed the expectations on Wall Street, and the result is a slow roll out of layoffs and top talent leaving. These aren't talked about publicly, despite their insistence on caring for their employees and fostering a culture of transparency. I'd like to hope this is temporary, but the senior leadership team has transitioned multiple times in the last year,...

          Pros

          Lots of interesting people with diverse personalities

          Cons

          Pros

          Great environment for personal growth. Loads of autonomy and support available.

          Cons

          Being part of a global organization also means taking meetings outside of regular business hours, it also means regular international travel (which I see as a pro btw!)
