    I have been working at Mixpanel full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    TLDR: I would not take a 30% raise to work somewhere else right now. People The people here are smart, nice, and motivated -- it's just fun to come into work every day. There's a culture of being generous, both with time and trust. Management With recent changes, management has become much more bottom-up. People are trusted and empowered, and the role of management is to provide direction/vision and remove blockers....

    Cons

    There would have been a list of items here ~6 months ago, but honestly we've addressed all of them. I would say one thing: If you want to coast, this is not the time to join Mixpanel. The road to success will take time, creativity, and grit to succeed, but I'm confident we have the team and focus to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum!

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

    Pros

    Fast paced and tremendously growing startup, open and collaborative culture, ample opportunities and practically every person in engineering/product/design is working on key strategic projects. Laser sharp focus on addressing product gaps reported by customers. Smart co-workers which includes a ton of Carnegie Mellon, Georgia Tech and Twitter alums.

    Cons

    Mixpanel is an extremely technical product (hence can take some time to ramp up unless you have worked in the analytics space before). Plenty of competitors in the data analytics space so sometimes can become hard to stay competitive since we are not a very big company and still growing. It's crucial everyone who works here understands how to ruthlessly prioritize which can be challenging sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Please continue to hire more engineers and product managers!

    I have been working at Mixpanel full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Mixpanel is an entirely different company than a year ago. We’re listening to customer feedback but also balancing the basics with innovation. The new leadership team is seasoned and knows what they’re doing. Even more importantly, they’re humble and open-minded. Everyone makes bad decisions sometimes, but instead of acting like they never happened, the execs discuss learnings from the big ones at company all hands. ...

    Cons

    The only negative at the moment is that the passion everyone has for the company and work can translate into long work days at times. Leadership is generally good at promoting internally, so there’s a payoff if you do well. Also, a larger amount of interesting and meaningful work beats being just another employee at a non-growth company, but that’s of course a personal preference and may not fit everyone.

    Pros

    People are great. The new leaders seem like the right people to get Mixpanel back into the huge growth it knew early on.

    Cons

    There were a couple past years of stagnation.

    Pros

    New CEO and his leadership team are turning the company around as reflected in the upward trends of the reviews (which are not fake). Early signs of success are truly promising. Great salary and benefits Great culture & smart people.

    Cons

    The company is in a more competitive market now, which means there is more pressure to deliver and make an impact. Not necessarily a bad thing but can be stressful to some people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the team to (re-)gain leadership position in the market.

    I have been working at Mixpanel full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Autonomy: you're trusted to be responsible for getting things done in the best way you know how. Micromanagement is absent. Process never becomes more important than delivering value. Empowerment: It's not a bigco. Everyone makes a noticeable impact, and individuals receive responsibility for significant systems and infrastructure. Learning: Coworkers are friendly, generous, and super-smart. Even after years at...

    Cons

    The staffing levels of different roles can vary wildly at different times, leading to unexpected bottlenecks (not enough designers, or product managers, or engineers specialized in some part of the stack). Small power vacuums around product ownership and direction occasionally lead to isolated competing efforts to address product pain points. Extreme focus on business competitors can be demoralizing, though it's clear...

    I have been working at Mixpanel full-time

    Pros

    Smart, friendly coworkers. No ego. Autonomy for teams. Challenging problems to work on and many opportunities for impact. It is an exciting time to be at Mixpanel. We shifted focus in May to become more customer focused, all the teams were given autonomy to prioritize features into what they felt was the most valuable work.

    Cons

    We lost focus on our customers, but this all changed in May and now we're making up for lost time, delivering exciting features.

    Great people, Interesting problems. Small enough that your work actually matters.

    Cons

    Recent reorg has brought morale down a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being aggressive in taking on the competition.
