I worked at Palantir Technologies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

1. People who work there, you can make some life friends 2. Food/benefits/perks 3. Very mission focused company 4. Will get you interviews at any other companies 5. No schedule, no set times to go into work or leave

Cons

1. A lot of folks carry the "Engineer" title when they have no scientific or engineering background 2. Lots of decisions about structure being made about company at high level 3. It's all about who you are friends with at Palantir, or who you are in a relationship within the company 4. The company doesn't respect new talent, they rely on folks who have been there 3+ years to be the "leaders", who have high egos 5. Don't expect a raise at this company, EVER. Bonuses and compensation go to the developers and business development teams, every other team gets screwed. 6. Equity isn't what it is anymore.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to your newer folks. Stop being buddy-buddy with the folks who have been here 3+ years. Actually take chances on some of the ideas the new people have.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
