Best Places to Work: 2014 (#45)
I have been working at Splunk full-time (Less than a year)
The majority of the people that work here are smart, dedicated, very genuine, and usually have a great sense of humor.
The product is awesome and the customer base almost fanatical, which makes working them a blast.
- an actual, honest, and transparent drive for diversity in the workplace
- great SF office with stocked kitchen on every floor
- lots of autonomy
- lots of time off
- generous RSU re-ups
- generous bonuses that are available to everyone (dependent upon company and individual performance)
- bar on the top floor
- spontaneous parties
- cool schwag
There is a lot of organizational change happening which is difficult to navigate for those that have been here to watch the company grow from 300 to 3000 employees in just a few, short years.
Advice to Management
Please try to keep striving for the balance between the start-up, disruptive culture and the challenge of adjusting to a necessary maturity as the company grows.
"Disruptive" is one of Splunk's main tenants. Let's keep on the knife's edge of our industry and continue to grow our product offering in dynamic ways that put us ahead of the competition.
I think we're doing a great job keeping our customers happy and engaged.
