    I have been working at Alpha full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Alpha has all of the ingredients for something special and is quickly becoming the best place I have ever worked. I have never worked with a group of people that combine intelligence and caring the way my coworkers do. I’ve had other sales people drop what they are doing to help me in a pinch, product managers that jump in to help me with a pitch, and customer success managers help train me to have ninja skills on the...

    Cons

    None really. But if I have to give one it’s the fomo that I get when the nyc team rolls to a cool event together.

    Advice to Management

    We are growing and growing fast. Let’s bottle this awesomeness as we scale.

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

    Pros

    My co-workers are smart, friendly, gritty and adventurous. There is a mission I believe in to improve how people work and how products are being built and there is a real need by large customers for our platform. Every day there is a new challenge to tackle or problem we can help solve for our clients. This job certainly isn't boring!

    Cons

    Some of the internal processes could be improved but these seem like normal startup challenges. I know management is improving on this so not much else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great people! Please continue to invest in our training as it is really important.

    I worked at Alpha full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Super nice people and a team that was growing very fast. They are very laid back which allows for a great work life balance and had no problem with people working from home. The culture is quite good with company outings happening regularly, not to mention team lunch on Fridays. Client work is interesting and exposes you to a ton of different ideas and products that might not be in market yet.

    Cons

    In the past, senior management did not really set/enforce any structure around how work should be done and what the goals were for the company so it was very easy for teams to do the bare minimum for extended periods of time. This coupled with the nebulous (at the best of times) product vision and a penchant for leaving development goals in the hands of junior employees lent itself to a lot of frustration across teams....

    Advice to Management

    You need a solid product roadmap, and to really get into the nitty gritty of implementing scalable/repeatable processes.
