Fun, exciting, fast-paced workplace
Event Manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin, 13 June 2013
Fun place to work, very young workforce, relaxed atmosphere. However, as it is a young company, their internal structure could be improved. All managers are inexperienced which can be problematic. And they have a very compromised Human Resource department.

However overall an exciting place to work, with a smart, vibrant team, and optimistic, daring leaders!
Pros
Free snacks, casual dresscode, young vibrant staff
Cons
Internal structure, human resources, inexperienced managers

Sales (Former Employee) –  Dublin24 September 2018
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.
Pros
Only surface ones that matter very little. Some people are nice, but most are young and arrogant.
Cons
Spoofery, lies, fear, bullying, low wages, an immature CEO and a shady COO
