Pros

VERY, "family" like environment. Everyone knows what they are doing. Some of then are genius. Open environment, flexible hours, EXTREMELY supportive and engaged management. Amazing work-life balance most of the time.

Cons

Development can be a cacophony of dorm room sound, smell, personalities and drinking at all hours of the work day. Less agile, more waterfall than they should be. They are not as adaptable to change as they could/should be. In fact several people I worked with were down right stubborn and set in their ways. The PM's don't seem to get full cooperation from development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep hiring good people, but tone down the drinking games and Arena quality sound system a bit.

    Pros

    The work culture here is amazing. People are friendly and the company treats its employees well. There are a lot of very smart people from different disciplines so working here gets you exposure to people with very diverse skill sets.

    Cons

    The work I was given to do as an intern was not the most interesting. In particular, I had to learn a lot of things that were specific to Splunk, and I wasn't able to gain many skills that were useful to me after finishing my internship. I think this was specific to my project, because some of the other interns I talked to did get a lot out of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, they are doing a fantastic job.

    Pros

    Amazing software and Development team. One of the very best CEOs in high tech. Strong management team. Marketing machine. Huge market opportunities. Really fast pace.

    Cons

    Demanding environment (but people self-select which is a good thing).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance the broad opportunities with priorities and focus.
