I worked at Palantir Technologies full-time for more than 5 yearsPros
The people are top notch. There's a lot of job satisfaction in working on hard problems where the solution actually makes a difference. Flat organization - individuals are encouraged to take responsibility and act with minimal hand-holding from above.Cons
Growing pains. Doubling every year can lead to significant churn, unclear direction, and spotty communications.
It is very hard work, constant change, long hours, and high expectations. Even for stellar performers, burnout is a real risk.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Palantir Technologies.Interview Details
Was contacted by a recruiter. Had an initial phone screen about my background/the position. She passed my resume along. First round phone interview, mostly behavioral but also had a hypothetical scenario. Didn't hear back for a week but when I did was asked if I could take the day off on two days notice to come in for a second round. This seemed a bit odd to ask on such short notice.
Next round was 4 interviews. Some with cases, one with brain teaser, one all behavioral. Brain teaser was tough. Behavioral questions seemed a bit irrelevant for someone pretty fresh out of college (what is the toughest decision you've ever had to make etc.) Overall, most people I met were very nice and interesting but the process wasn't too great. There is definitely a feeling that your time as a candidate isn't important (interviewers were frequently late, I was expected to schedule interviews last minute, my phone screen interviewer didn't call me on time and I had to call the recruiter to check in about it etc.) The process was more disorganized than I would expect from a company of Palantir's level.
After the second round the next step would have been a couple more interviews, the recruiter told me. A week later I got a generic email saying I wouldn't be moving forward.No OfferDifficult Interview
