Pros

This is one of the best place to meet extremely talented peers, and you will always be challenged to do great things. Teams are small and there's plenty of innovation going on. It's a great learning experience.

Cons

Palantir is not really a start up anymore.

    I worked at Palantir Technologies

    Pros

    Intelligent coworkers, large potential financial upside, life taken care of, good notch on resume, lots of work to do, lush perks.

    Cons

    Long hours, party hard culture, disdain for best practices and introspection, strong corporate culture unsuitable for some. Not a finesse company but one trying to brute force it.

    I have been working at Palantir Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a terrific place to work if you get excited by working on really hard, exciting and important problems with incredibly smart people. I've never worked anywhere that had a more powerful sense of mission. Additionally, the organisation optimises on hiring people who are just nice and work well together. So there are a lot of people who are fun to hang out with.

    Given Palantir's Silicon Valley heritage, the perks are (of course) great - free food, laundry, gym, housing subsidy, etc etc etc. But they're not there to build entitlement - you're expected to work hard, and they're there to make your life easier given that.

    Cons

    It's not really the place for you if you're looking for an easy life. You will be challenged and have to work really hard.
