Pros

Great technology but even better team of people to work with.
Fast growing company with plenty of upside potential.
Smart, fun and hard working co-workers.

One of the best feelings is going to a customer site and they are actually excited to see you. They want to show what they have done with the product and how it is actually saved them so much time and money.

When working with the internal teams, whether it's support, product management or engineering you always feel like something is actually being accomplished. Suggestions that customers have about possible enhancements are actually taken into account and built into future releases. Remote users are a part of the process and we feel welcome whenever we travel out to HQ.

Cons

Typical growth pains of a company in transition. If you have ever been a part of a small growing company you know what this statement means. As Splunk transitions into a public company, new policy and procedures are being adopted, but the core of the company is still strong.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on investing on making Splunk the leader in the Big Data realm.

    Looks like a great place to work at the surface, but looks are very deceptive...proceed with caution.

    I worked at Splunk full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a company that appears to be on the rise that, while no longer the plucky start-up, works hard to make sure it feels like that to the employees. There's plenty of beer, food and foosball tables to maintain a party atmosphere and most people sincerely believe in the product. Great location and great benefits.

    Cons

    Others have pointed these out: A boys' club approach at the senior management level (literally and figuratively); a LOT of people waiting to cash in their chips and even more people in management positions that have no business (or streetsmarts) being there. There's also a sense that the company will get sold off, which has a bearing on future morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what you want to be, communicate it and clean out the deadweight who don't want change. Splunk isn't the plucky startup it used to be...reflect that in every aspect of its business.

    Passive Aggressive and weak managers who are too focused on their IPO.

    I worked at Splunk

    Pros

    Excellent work facilities as far as breakrooms and food. The best.
    The pay was very good.

    Cons

    The managers in professional services would smile at you right up until they let you go. I would recommend Splunk -- in every way -- except for its' professional services group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to implement better training programs, not just for new hires--but, for the rapidly growing number of managers.
