    Amazing technology, culture focussed on innovation and collaboration, good comp and bens, passionate people, has more of a family feel than a corporate feel, gartner magic quadrant leader, high growth. Our CEO, Doug is inspirational yet grounded and great exec comms to business.

    Cons

    Growth is enormous, like 40% YOY growth which means a lot of new people, and processes and org structure needs to catch up.

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

    Pros

    Good Product, some genuine smart people. Good benefits

    Cons

    Many are on the gravy train and will do anything to protect their positions. Be wary of incompetent lazy management doing as little as possible. They will be the first to sacrifice you in order to keep their RSUs and maintain relations with the boys club. They claim to have built a culture when the reality is they have imported one from elsewhere, with many existing relationships over a decade. They are so far behind in process and practice, they can only be described as a bodyshop. As others here have said, as long as the growth and numbers keep rising, the core group will be protected and given free reign to do as they please.
