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

    Pros

    -The company management structure is relatively flat and you will quickly notice how easy it is to talk to people who are more senior.
    -You will always be busy. If you're not with a client, there are plenty of projects to join.
    -There are opportunities to expand the scope of your work and pursue something that might interest you a bit more.
    -Very cooperative work environment.

    Cons

    -You will at some point be stuck doing monotonous tasks, such as mapping variables, etc. It doesn't matter if you come in with a degree in biology, or a PhD in Quantum Physics, you will will be moving lots of data around, and doing everything associated with that.

    -Professional development (especially subject matter expertise) is up to you.

    I worked at Palantir Economic Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Small company so a more intimate culture. Very easy to reach out to all levels of management.

    Cons

    Poor retention of most talented employees. Some poor management. Lack of care about employees.

    Advice to Management

    You are not getting paid to micro-manage and send emails.

    Pros

    There are many great aspects about Palantir. The people are fun, everyone has great sense of humor and all get along really well. Opportunities for growth are also available, especially if open to taking on different tasks. I have always felt welcome to bring any questions to managers, whether to clarify a task or ask for guidance.

    It's a big company globally, but locally the office feels small and tight-knit. The culture is relaxed (business casual wear any day) and one of my favorite parts about Palantir. There are also staff parties and team-building events to look forward to.

    Cons

    Since there are offices and teams all over the world, communication can get lost. This is easily remedied by following up phone calls with an e-mail in order to make sure you are all on the same page - has definitely saved me some confusion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Palantir Economic Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This niche company has elements of a tech start up combined with a genuine thought leader in the area of oil and gas planning. For a small company, it is very diverse with people from 30+ countries. This global feel is furthered by the fact that the company has offices around the globe.

    All of Palantir's clients are large or very large oil and gas companies. Palantir software is used to streamline the very complex reserves, portfolio and financial reporting processes. Career progress for employees is very rapid; the people who work here combine skills the skills of an engineering, MBA and computing science graduates.

    The company is a meritocracy that rates employee contributions on three key principles; demonstrating initiative, delivering measurable results and demonstrating high degrees of customer focus.

    Employees are given a great deal of flexibility in how they approach their work. The workplace is filled with intelligent, hardworking, motivated individuals who excel at solving problems and getting things done.

    Cons

    Like any start up, many of the positive aspects of a smaller company can be a challenge. The flexibility may be a benefit to some but may seem unstructured to some. There are fewer processes than large companies, which can be frustrating to people who like to have things clearly defined for them. The company is smaller and the quality of one's work gets noticed quickly, which is great if the work is good; it's not great if the work is not so good.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat people like professionals. Continue to provide the best work environment possible. Communicate to the company more frequently, especially when times are tough. Keep striving to solve big problems. Keep innovating, but let go of the bad ideas sooner.

    Cons

    It's mostly cons
    Nepotism at the top

    Hold each other accountable. Be willing to fire/lay off a friend/wife when they make poor decisions, not just the people who followed their orders. Show integrity.

    Pros

    Varied work and opportunities to join interesting projects in oil and gas economics. Fun atmosphere, casual work culture. You can make a big impact in this small company.

    Cons

    Emerging from its startup phase, Palantir Solutions can lack structure and process, which can frustrate employees. Decision making can be opaque.

    Advice to Management

    Flat hierarchy, people are friendly, good working environment.

    Cons

    Regional office seems to be a bit disconnected with the main office in London. Still relatively small for a 13 year-old company.

    Advice to Management

    Need more focus on products and develop the workplace culture more.
