I worked at Splunk as a contractor

Pros

Great location, agile business, fantastic people and a rare opportunity to work with a "real" product that will impact the IT industry for the next decade plus, and a chance to deal with customers who actually love the product!

Cons

It's a fast moving tech company, so expect long hours, pressure, a degree of chaos, and the need to be a self-starter. Not for everyone, but if you like silicon valley technology companies, Splunk's hard to beat.

Advice to Management

Maintain focus on the core business, this has the potential to be a $1B business, and keep those employees happy! They're your biggest asset!

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

    I worked at Splunk full-time (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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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