    Interview

    The first two interviewers were nice people but the last one was a jerk. He has no integrity and dishonest. I don't know what was the purpose of him having a attitude during the interview.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Splunk (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Beware - Do not apply here unless you want to wait multiple months only to find out you didn't get the job. I spent 3+ months interviewing for a position (2 phone interviews, 2 onsites) and was left in the dark for months after my final interview. In fact, I had to continue asking the recruiter about an update and kept being told a decision had not been made, which is absolutely ridiculous. Completely disorganized company. Choose to work elsewhere.
