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

Pros

Glassdoor needs me to write pros, and I created a glassdoor account simply because I have never been so throughly dissatisfied with an employer to go through the trouble of creating an account and writing a review. Undoubtedly splunk is the golden child of this decade, if you count the IPO and the very slick product. It's a good product, there is simply no doubt about this. It also makes me think that they do not need a sales staff. The product sells itself. It's like log management software in a bikini. Let me say that one more time: The product sells itself. Now - see the cons.

Cons

The product sells itself. Simple. They know this. So the field staff receives step motherly treatment at best. If you really manage to worm your way into a good team where you are fairly insulated from the surrounding ennui, then you are golden. I have never had such an awful time working for a company with such a great product. Is this a place for somewhat brainless people? Yes. If you want to sell disruptive technology and not forget that you also have a brain, leave.
If you want to do a brainless job day after day, and work with colleagues who don't know the meaning of the phrase 'team spirit', you are in the right place. Good product. Bad managers, absolutely incompetent hr and field support. Bad company.

Advice to Management

Lose your field staff. Outsource to a telemarketing firm. You will probably get the same ROI. There will also be no need to employ so many field sales folks. More money in your pocket.

    I have been working at Splunk full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing products, great people, great office!

    Cons

    Typical growing (hyper growing?) pains, empire building, veterans getting tired

    Advice to Management

    Don't let your new wealth distract you! There's plenty more upside.


  2. "Best career choice ever"

    Pros

    Committed, passionate, fair and experienced leadership team. Fun culture. Amazing products. Exceptional customer relations. "We all must win" could be the mantra illustrating colleagues willingness to share and coach others. No "eagles" flying solo here! Interview cycle is very thorough - makes everyone who makes it onboard feel special!

    Cons

    None really. Some of what would be expected with a hyper growth company as operational support works to align with sales growth.

    Advice to Management

    Devote more focus and resources to channel development to support scalability of the sales organization. Keep up the conscious effort to maintain the culture as the company grows!
