    I have been working at Mixpanel full-time

    Pros

    Joined after the leadership changed. We are dedicated in improving based on our customers' feedback. Everyone is passionate about the product we are building. So much learning opportunities. Having worked for FB before, I would say you have better culture, diverse team, dedicated employees (sales, engineering, design etc), and good compensation. HIGHLY talented engineering team Great people globally Great compensation Good benefits (except 401K Match) Good WLB. Catered lunch & dinner Great Swags TRANSPARENCY !

    Cons

    No 401K Match Limited Health Insurance option (they are good - but I used to work for a company with about 8 options)

    Pros

    Great Product that really does help companies improve their business. Free lunch, wellness benefits, great office, health insurance etc.

    Cons

    No structure in the sales org. and terrible GTM strategy in comparison to competitors. Culture in the NY office is horrible. No possibility for internal growth.

    I worked at Mixpanel full-time

    Pros

    -Ownership over many projects: as a relatively young worker, I got lots of responsibility, including project and people management. I really appreciated the opportunity to take on new challenges.

    Cons

    -Lack of support resources: As a new manager, there were not many resources available to help us improve our people management skills. Upper management tended to focus on project execution, but direct reports cared about people management and mentorship.

    "Good company with room for improvement"

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Really smart & driven people fostering a data-driven culture, free bfast/lunch/dinner each day, flexible PTO and a wellness stipend each month, semi-flexible work hours (wfh every once in awhile, come in late, etc.), growing internationally, fast rate of innovation on product side, great to place to kick off your sales career, keeps sales team updated on methodologies, high cross-functional team collaboration, supportive and diligent HR department, huge focus on diversity and inclusion

    Cons

    Minimal training (2 weeks) for new hires (totally on you to get fully on-boarded), reliance on Sales team to demo product for small deals (which is quite technical) without concrete ongoing support, difficult to work abroad if based in US, inexperienced management - many are new and do not have access to formal trainings/resources, HIGH churn each year especially on sales side, a sense of "cliqueness"in NY/SF offices, recognition great for sales team but marketing/support/professional services teams hardly ever recognized, lots of constant stress put on management which causes a silenced, hostile environment for everyone, OBSESSED with 1 competitor

    I have been working at Mixpanel full-time

    Pros

    - Smart and humble people that make this company great - Real transparency - Valuable product that's constantly improving - Growth trajectory and impressive wins with logos that validate huge market demand - Constantly changing (mostly for the better) and willing to learn from mistakes - Talented leaders who genuinely care

    Cons

    - Changes can be jarring and can do better communicating at times - We're a big startup and sometimes changes are made as if we're a small startup - Some managers are still learning to lead - Even though we have great transparency at company level, it's hard to keep up with what's happening with other teams

    I worked at Mixpanel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I am having a hard time thinking of any pros.

    Cons

    Everything. This was by far the work experience I've had in my career. The pay was not competitive, management lied to you about career advancements... I could go on but will just offer the advice to just continue your job search and pass on Mixpanel.

    "Not great"

    Former Employee - Sales in New York, NY

    I worked at Mixpanel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free lunch, a lot of snacks, no rules of engagement you can close any deal you want as long as you are friends with a main manager, easy layups if you are friends with your manager, easy upsells due to lack of support you can upsell a “better” support package which really means getting support to answer within a week instead of 3 weeks.

    Cons

    Overall it’s a toxic environment that is overly obsessed with their competitor. I feel that the CEO (who has had multiple C titles in the past few years) is blinded by money/revenue and can’t see the toxic culture of the company. If you do not agree with him you will probably be gone in a few months (look at change in management constantly). Managers will help their friends and if you aren’t a friend you will probably be gone in a few months. The “friends” reps change billing addresses and get away with it. The ceo turns a blind eye to the cheating for the sole purpose of revenue. You won’t grow here. Just stay stagnant and collect paychecks.

    I worked at Mixpanel full-time

    Pros

    - Competitive pay and perks - Most of the Leadership team are strong and care deeply about the success of their peers - It's a valuable product with a straightforward sale - Intelligent coworkers that are eager to help - Flexible work schedule - Challenging tasks - Awesome culture

    Cons

    - Bad habit of focusing on one competitor at a time instead of looking at the big picture - There is a tiny toxic clique that think they are so cool, but they are total losers. Avoid them like the plague and do not let their middle school antics bring you down

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

    Pros

    Lots of free food and decent health insurance.

    Cons

    All I can say is stay away. Most of our sales leadership team has quit because of the toxic culture here at MP. A large population is looking. In the absence of an adult in the room a very bizarre GTM strategy has been rolled out very poorly. You know you are at the wrong company when a common question to hear at the all hands meetings is: "Why do we continue to lose people who come from top tier startups less than a year into their time at MP?" So many other opportunities in the Bay Area. Don't waste your career and time on a flailing company with a lack of direction.
