Best Places to Work:2014 (#45)
I worked at Splunk full-time (More than 3 years)
The most talented education team I ever worked with (30+ years in hi-tech). Love the product and the entrepreneurial spirit of the company, when I first joined.
I worked from home due to a lack of space, so I did not not SEE things. However, when I left, in late fall 2016, I noticed that the corporate culture was changing, as I suppose it must. There seemed to be more silos and the company was more corporate. Also, a tendency to hire those you know, which can be good, made for a less diverse team that one would hope for, especially in education. A significant lack of female trainers and trainers of color.
Advice to Management
Read the above. Support for Women in Tech is great, but when it isn't pushed down to departments, what's the point?
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Splunk.
Applied online and got a call
Two phone screens, video interview rounds (substitutes for on-site rounds) with 7 people (both 1:1 and group / panel) and one final video interview (1:1) with a top-ranked exec from the management side.
Very friendly people. They explained that I didn't get an offer as they were looking for someone more senior. It was a learning experience.
