I have been working at Splunk full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Basically it is funny and lots of things you can do. People are nice and willing to talk. The company culture is great - though the hardware is not as good as Google, but it is still a great company in the bay area.

Cons

The organization is kind of confusing. The management tend to hire new managers from outside instead of promoting somebody internally. The career path is not that steady - but actually it happens to every big data company.

    I have been working at Splunk full-time

    Pros

    Great core product, amazing upside (if they get it right) a tiny bit of the true Splunk culture from the founders is still hanging on.

    Cons

    Becoming "that company" at an alarming rate. Lack of transparency and cooperation between teams, finger pointing inability to execute / monitize beyond core product. Poor apps strategy, Splunk Storm utter fail, Hunk stalled out to name a few. Scattershot approach to new target markets. Teams are managing up and hunkering down vs innovating. Stock compensation is all they can offer to attract and retain ppl and even the street is noticing all the dilution. Culture of fear where there is a fail fast, but succeed or else mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would Rob or Erik fit in this company now? If not, then take a second to think what that means.
