I have been working at Splunk

Pros

Overall, the best thing I can say about Splunk is that if I fail, or don't grow enough as an engineer, or anything like that, it'll be my fault. I'm given all the responsibility I can handle, am treated with respect and trust by my colleagues and managers (including senior management).

Cons

The only real downsides is that in terms of benefits it is just "OK" (especially compared to some of the larger companies like Google and Microsoft). Also, as the company grows, it has some friction around various processes (hiring/recruiting/promotions/etc).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out how we can grow the product into new markets, like startups.

    Pros

    Tolle innovative Technologie, sehr schnell wachsende und erfolgreiche Firma mit tollem Geschäftsführer.

    Great innovative technology, very fast growing and successful company with an extraordinary CEO.

    Cons

    Wächst sehr schnell und manchmal nicht unter Berücksichtigung der Qualifikation und Entwicklung der Leute in der Region EMEA, offensichtlich zu weit entfernt. 'Fürchten' Sie die Verwaltung.

    Growing very fast and sometimes not considering the qualification and development of people hired in EMEA obviously being too remote. 'Fear' management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Haben Sie einen genaueren Blick auf EMEA und die verschiedenen regionalen und auch kulturell bestimmten Unterschiede und folgen Sie "Unsere Werte" und einigen Erfolgsgeschichten und Mustern der anderen Vertriebsorganisationen von US-Anbietern in EMEA.

    Have a closer look at EMEA, the various regional and also culturally-determined differences and follow the Splunk 'Our Values' and some success stories and patterns of other sales organizations of US vendors in EMEA.

    Pros

    The product is amazing and has a clear need within the industry. The founders emphasis was on the culture and people as well as building a great product. It was quite rewarding having such a high influence on the product and quality.

    Cons

    The usual startup woes: being spread thin, work/life balance although it wasn't particularly bad here, somewhat of a bro culture although you never felt excluded if you weren't a 'bro'.
