Pros

Coworkers are very nice and helpful. Also very smart.
Get to work on/with some innovative software.
Great company activities

-> Company provided BEER! <-

Cons

Wish they would 401k match.
Interviewing was a bit chaotic, but it's understandable. They're a fast growing company that's very fluid. Roll with it and you'll be fine.

    Know your manager and your team. They will make or break you.

    Pros

    - Pre-2010 team in SF HQ: Supportive, very smart, genuine, driven, customer-focused, WYSIWYG.
    - HQ is great.
    - Passionate and loyal customers.

    Cons

    Applies to U.S. teams only:
    1. CURRENT Federal and other geographic teams are not the same DNA as SF HQ. Serious issues with leadership and culture.
    2. If the hiring manager is not actively recruiting you, don't bother applying. The position is filled.
    3. Apart from New Hire Sales Training, new hires will find it extremely hard to fit in and obtain sincere support from peers. Trust your gut. Watch your back.
    4. Your successes are your own. Your "areas of improvement" are often snap judgement calls from peers that don't even know you. These perceived weaknesses will be broadcast wide to anyone that will listen, and will be held against you for the rest of your career at Splunk.
    5. You will not learn from your direct manager.
    6. HR will hurt you.
    7. Internal promotion process is a travesty. See #3, #4.

    Advice to Management

    - Analyze why employees have left such a great company. You don't have to look very far.
    - Warning: Pay more attention to the fair balance of accounts and territories in Sales.
    - Support employees that want to make a move internally instead of negatively perceiving their innate curiosity and willingness to grow and be challenged. Be honored that the early risk-takers and entrepreneurial spirits want to stay and impact a new business unit/team/opportunity. They are the ones that made Splunk the innovative and disruptive company it's become.
