I worked at Splunk full-time (More than a year)

Pros

It's a company that appears to be on the rise that, while no longer the plucky start-up, works hard to make sure it feels like that to the employees. There's plenty of beer, food and foosball tables to maintain a party atmosphere and most people sincerely believe in the product. Great location and great benefits.

Cons

Others have pointed these out: A boys' club approach at the senior management level (literally and figuratively); a LOT of people waiting to cash in their chips and even more people in management positions that have no business (or streetsmarts) being there. There's also a sense that the company will get sold off, which has a bearing on future morale.

Advice to Management

Figure out what you want to be, communicate it and clean out the deadweight who don't want change. Splunk isn't the plucky startup it used to be...reflect that in every aspect of its business.

    "Passive Aggressive and weak managers who are too focused on their IPO."

    Pros

    Excellent work facilities as far as breakrooms and food. The best.
    The pay was very good.

    Cons

    The managers in professional services would smile at you right up until they let you go. I would recommend Splunk -- in every way -- except for its' professional services group.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to implement better training programs, not just for new hires--but, for the rapidly growing number of managers.
