    I have been working at Alteryx full-time

    Pros

    Great people doing big things. You'll feel welcomed from day one. Hilariously awesome benefits. You are given every opportunity to shine and move up if you put in the work. I genuinely enjoy coming into work in the morning. Love my team.

    Cons

    Relaxed culture can sometimes attracts people who want to sit, play on their phones, and collect a check. We want good people we can enjoy the high times with, but you need to come ready to work first.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the transparency and your efforts to stay true to us employees while we pivot from a feisty startup to a publicly traded juggernaut.

    Pros

    Most challenging job I've ever had. The company is growing quickly. Find the right people to connect with and you'll be well supported with your ideas to improve processes and be innovative. You will learn a ton if you like learning and are open to feedback on how you can improve in your role. The product is beloved by users which is pretty awesome to be part of.

    Cons

    Not a place to coast or take it easy. Feels pretty top down management wise in engineering. Thing move very quickly and it's not a suitable place for those that have difficulty adapting to frequent changes.

    Advice to Management

    Some additional benefits would be appreciated, such as bus passes for those of us that want to use public transit and more of a WFH culture.

    Pros

    Fast growing company, amazing culture of like-minded people, and an incredible product that customers love! There is a lot of opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Like any fast growing company, there are some pains associated with growth. In a rapid growth environment that's ever changing, you need to be flexible.

    I have been working at Alteryx full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge development technologies. Remote work flexibility. Startup feel. This place is full of truly brilliant people. Our customers are super passionate about the software. Tons of perks, great benefits. Tons of opportunity for career and personal growth. Alteryx is really going places and now is the time to hop on board. It's like joining Apple or Google in 1995.

    Cons

    Can be meeting-heavy. There can be breakdowns in communication. Growth means a lot of change. There are some who have a hard time changing (or frankly refuse to), and then get miffed and write fire and brimstone reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just focus on perks and look at the entire employee perspective: work / life balance, career growth, etc. Reward your high performers. Focus on developing people, and hire more entry-level employees. Everyone needs to start somewhere.

    Pros

    Software and location are good.

    Cons

    1. Inside sales mgmt is aging and worn.
    2. The culture is shoved down our throat as opposed to organic growth.
    3. Sales has low morale. Already losing great reps to competitors.
    4. Low pay=low talent. Some directors and managers barely have an education.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes. FAST.

    Pros

    Coworkers, product, location, 401k match, strong customer base.

    Cons

    -Older Mgmt
    -Low morale
    -Low base

    Advice to Management

    Need more youth and energy within Inside Sales Management! Many of the young talented sales reps dread coming to work and having to report to some of the Senior Managers/Directors. Alteryx is already taking steps to address this issue with younger hires on the Commercial side however parts of Enterprise land and the LDR team still have very poor morale. And it seems as though a few young and proven All-Stars on the Enterprise team would be ready to take the jump to leadership today. Aside from this, the product is excellent, customers are great and CEO is awesome.

    Pros

    Cool software product, benefits, food and snacks, gym discount

    Cons

    Poor executive leadership driven by sales and popularity. Inexperienced and immature middle management. No matter how hard you work, you aren't recognized for your contributions. Merit increases and bonuses are paltry for the software industry. You are expected to work your tail off for very little in return.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling people how they should feel lucky to work here and start appreciating them. It's exhausting to listen to the CEO, Directors or Managers talk about how lucky you are to work at Alteryx. Have you considered doing something nice for the people that work for Alteryx? A little kindness goes a long way.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Free snacks
    CEO is down-to-earth
    Millennial type of environment

    Cons

    Alteryx is very top heavy. There are too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Half of them are not even qualified as managers. Most of them do not care about their employees and need to take management classes.

    One of their initiatives are to retain top talents but they are doing the opposite by pushing talents out. It doesn't matter how hard you work, it's hard to be promoted within. A perfect example (keeping this as anonymous as possible to avoid retaliation), a former manager was working tirelessly and invested in the company as he put in many hours + weekends. Not to mention that he was undervalued/underpaid. His boss is clueless on how valuable he’s to the company. Instead of promoting this former manager or getting him help, his boss decided to hire a Director without communicating to him. When the manager left, it was a huge blow to the department and they finally realized that he does a lot. Management also encourages us to talk to the direct manager for career path and promotions. Wait…What!? If I go to my manager and ask for a promotion, I’ll be labelled as high maintenance. Shouldn't it be the other way around since they have the authority? So backwards!

    Directors and above get a way with so many things. Why? One simple answer, buddy system. It’s who you know instead of what you know. Most of Directors and VPs know each other. I guess it’s a common practice when a company goes public and becomes a cooperate world instead of a company that cares about their employees and promotes within.

    Communication here is just plain bad. The root cause? You got managers and above that do not understand the word manage, and they all think we are mind readers. It’s rather simple don’t you think? We are not robots so please talk and treat us like human beings.

    Advice to Management

    Executives, Alteryx used to be a great company to work for but after seeing what happened to someone that we respect and love got burned (as described in the Cons section), I am uncertain on my future with Alteryx. How do I know the aforementioned won't happen to me? Please listen to your employees and fix this before things get worst. You know the problem and you know the ONE department/person that’s causing all of this ruckus. Please do something before you lose more talents.
