If you want to work in a cliquey, bullying environment where so-called managers take credit for your work on a daily basis while sucking up to a spoilt immature CEO, then this is the place for you!

If you fancy going into an office where you don't know if you are next in the firing line, then apply for this job!


If you want to work with arrogant insecure unqualified people who set unachievable targets, go for it!


Web Summit is a joke. It is not a tech company but a sales outfit set up in a shed. And HR will lie to you 100% - no one with a brain sticks around for long.

Global Sponsorships Manager (Current Employee) - Dublin
A rather ruthless environment to work in, senior management are all extremely young and inexperienced, therefore there is a high level of immaturity running throughout the company.
