Current Employee - Marketing Manager

I have been working at Alexa Internet full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Alexa’s history is impressive. It’s completely evolved since it’s inception in 1996 from simply “the Alexa Rank” into a truly valuable suite of SEO and content marketing tools. Being a part of that... evolution amidst a crowded, competitive digital marketing space is really exciting. As a previous reviewer noted, Alexa runs with an entrepreneurial spirit while also maintaining organizational stability. It’s small team that moves quickly, but in a flexible, good-natured working environment with really robust employee benefits. Many of its employees have been there since the early years—smart, savvy, individuals who are real team players. I have always felt respected, like I have a voice, and can make an impact. Additionally, the flatter organizational structure of the team means lots of opportunity for non-senior employees to take on more responsibility and be very hands on. This aspect of the company has played a really positive role in my professional growth, setting a solid foundation for my career. I think there’s a lot of growth potential for Alexa, and have enjoyed being a part of a team that gets things done with determination and a good attitude. In sum: -Friendly team -Flexible working environment -Opportunity to be hands on, assume more responsibility -Always new projects, lots of potential -Great work/life balance and benefits

Cons

Stretched resources is common problem for small teams. Despite a desire to always move quickly, having to diligently prioritize is the reality. Also, operating by Amazon standards can mean extra... hoops or limitations when it comes to certain projects. This fosters resourcefulness, but can be very frustrating. At times it has felt like trying to moving too fast has compromised product quality and customer experience. It’s true that sometimes perfect can be the enemy of the good, stifling progress, but I would like to see the team build in more time to really optimize the tools we have rather than hurrying off to build something new.
