Ivy dating nyc
IVY Events are designed to be highly immersive and interactive.
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to engage with important topics and exchange ideas with fellow members.
The events are unique and engaging, and fun to produce!
Cons There are lots of changes, almost every month, to company structure, event product etc.
Pros The massive upside of IVY is that it's an immense learning opportunity for anyone interested in entrepreneurship, and a chance for you to roll up your sleeves and actively partake in the creation of something.
Despite being a challenging environment with rapid changes and high expectations, it tests your ability to think creatively and critically, and allows you to acquire experience otherwise available to more... If you care about the product and are invested in solving challenges and voicing your opinions, there is room to quickly advance and get additional responsibilities.
I have personally grown a lot during my years here, and would recommend it to anyone actively seeking the above.
Cons It's definitely what you make of it, and if you're looking for a passive job this is not the place for you.
In my almost two years here, the company went through three major sweeps of team “restructuring” where 15-20% of the entire employee base were let go. Carry those relationships on outside of this IVY story as it’s the only tangible takeaway this company will ever offer to you.
The other offices around the country are much more relaxed and flexible. When he didn’t find success with that, he created IVY, the Social University. All of this being said, I have met some amazing coworkers and some amazing people who are members of IVY, so it’s not as if everyone is evil.
THE LEADERSHIP The CEO, Beri, is one of the worst people to work for, if you’re able to see beyond his buzz words. He’s shown multiple times his employees are just a number to him; for example, he hired a dozen new Community Managers when he was trying to get funding (in order to make the company seem like it was growing) and then promptly fired roughly the same amount of CMs once the round was done. It’s just a shame - there are people who truly believe in this vision, and still do - but this company is just not the one to deliver on it.
Pros"Never settle" environment where innovation and change is the norm.
Everyone constantly questioning how we can do even better for our customers and ourselves. Ability to receive real time feedback from customers and seeing the direct impact of your work. Cons CEO can just be downright mean, unreasonable, and so headstrong.
