Best Places to Work:2014 (#45)
I have been working at Splunk full-time (More than a year)
- A very close, welcoming culture
- A believable commitment to creating diverse teams
- Great pay and benefits
- While there are C-level shakeups, many of the folks at the top of the chain legitimately care for the company and employees. Many of them are very approachable, even as someone much lower in hierarchy in a totally different office.
- Implementation of systems to foster a change culture and mindset will ultimately benefit the company and help stabilize clunky legacy systems
- Great PTO, remote, WFH policies
- Current process overhaul is painful and likely will be for another couple of months
- The politics, especially at SVP level, are gnarly and hinder forward progress
- There are fairly different cultures in different offices. While there is a pretty positive "Splunk Culture," folks in one office often feel a little uncomfortable in other offices
Advice to Management
Keep listening to your employees, and if people in management levels want to leave due to newer, less command-and-control processes, let them leave instead of compromising a promising system to keep them.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Splunk (San Francisco, CA).
First recruiter scheduled telephone call with Hiring Manager. After that there was in-person interview. Five interviewers interviewed with 45 minutes each. Questions were focused on understanding the background with some technical questions in between
