    Pros

    - Autonomy: No one is going to micro-manage you or hold your hand. If you're not a self-starter and need that kind of environment, then you will potentially struggle here. Now, if you need help or resources, there are hundreds of people willing. I get to work the way I believe is the most effective. - Caring: This is the first job I've had where I felt that my boss (and leadership in general) really cares about me outside of my work. We have weekly syncs where I can talk about whatever is on my mind. I feel much happier at work and at home. - Culture: My coworkers are both the smartest and most fun people I know. Each time I meet a new employee I'm blown away by their background or experience. I'm surrounded by people who are all smarter than me and I'm always always learning. I love it.

    Cons

    - Location: Palo Alto isn't my preferred location for work, but Palantir does a great job of helping anyone (no matter where you live) get to work as best as they can. - Amount of work/number of designers ratio: Being a Product Designer at Palantir is an incredible opportunity, but the design team is still too new and small to be most effective. We are spread pretty thin. We are tracking to fix this as the current grind is hard to maintain.

    Advice to Management

    What I love about Palantir is that when I do have advice/questions/concerns about the company, management has an open-door policy that always makes me feel heard. That said, I think we should focus more on design, even more than we are now.
