Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Intelligent coworkers, large potential financial upside, life taken care of, good notch on resume, lots of work to do, lush perks.

Cons

Long hours, party hard culture, disdain for best practices and introspection, strong corporate culture unsuitable for some. Not a finesse company but one trying to brute force it.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    This is one of the best place to meet extremely talented peers, and you will always be challenged to do great things. Teams are small and there's plenty of innovation going on. It's a great learning experience.

    Cons

    Palantir is not really a start up anymore.

    I have been working at Palantir Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great environment to be a part of, you have a part to play in tangible real world outcomes no matter what your role.
    - Seriously talented people throughout the organization who are given the space and opportunity have impact.
    - Healthy leadership attitude – set example by doing, don’t always manage well in a traditional sense, which annoys some who would prefer hand holding - but really it’s down to individuals to carve out their own path.
    - Growth curve much sharper than I have experienced elsewhere

    Cons

    - At times, especially early on, it was tough to adjust to the chaos happening all around you, things change very quickly and you have to learn to be OK with that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up
