Featured Review

Current Employee - Account Executive

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

Pros

- Product has been on an amazing path in the last 2 years. VP of Product and EPD team deeply care about building the best product analytics platform in the world. - GTM has needed work and changed... every year to try to maximize LTV/CAC. The work is not done but focus on right segments is clearly visible. Execution will take time and a lot of discipline and effort.

Cons

- Marketing could be more focused on thought leadership and adding value to our end customers to do their own jobs better instead of focus on generating "leads". I can see a recent shift and hope it... stays.

Advice to Management

- Relentless focus on new segments and deep execution in the GTM team should help to win the market and get miles ahead of overfunded & cashburning competitors who will have a hard time managing... their burn post covid. - Bunch of negative reviews lately are unfortunately doing so some covid related layoffs. I know it can be painful to some employees to lose jobs in this environment and it is a sad truth of the times we live in. Dont think much can be done about it.
