    Hyper-growth. Lean and mean, not overly burdened with processes. A highly collaborative environment. Great compensation (in particular the equity). You get to work on an exciting and emerging space using a variety of different technologies. Good work/life balance. Great people!


    No matching 401K (though the net benefits makes up for it). HR is still young and there are gaps. IT support is slow. Lack of mentoring culture

    Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Splunk.

    Interview Details

    I initially heard about the position from a former colleague, and the company piqued my interest due to its unique position in the marketplace. I applied online for two positions and was contacted the following week by the recruiter.

    The first interview consisted of a phone screen by the recruiter to gauge my interest. It was purely conversational and I enjoyed speaking transparently about company culture, benefits, and compensation.

    The second phone interview was with a team lead. This conversation was much more awkward as it seemed the interviewer was distracted and/or stressed. I had the chance to ask a few questions, but the answers seemed pretty generic.

    The third phone interview was with the hiring manager. This involved more in-depth behavioral questions and about my current experience.

    The third phone interview was with the Director of CRM. I really enjoyed this conversation as we had shared some previous experience together. This conversation gave great insight into the company's vision and culture.

    After the initial phone interviews, I was brought onsite for meetings with the team. The onsite interview consisted of meeting six people of the team (team-members, hiring manager, SR Director, architect). The onsite meetings gave me mixed feelings. Some conversations were great and natural, but others were passive-aggressive. At one point, a team-member openly ridiculed my lack of experience for the role.

    After the onsite interview, I felt very confident that I had concluded the interview process, but the hiring manager contacted me to notify me that I had a week to prepare a presentation on key concepts to the team. This was a surprise to me, but I wanted to demonstrate my passion/interest so I spent the weekend preparing a presentation. After the presentation, I heard feedback that everything went well and that I should be expecting to hear back soon.

    However, this was not the case. Over the span of the next two weeks, I had three more phone interviews! By then, I was mentally exhausted and felt that the process was disorganized - not a good impression for what was really happening behind the scenes.

    After 6-7 weeks and 11 interviews later, I finally received the offer, but declined due to various reasons.
