    I have been working at Splunk full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Splunk is an innovative place to work. Splunk is full of employees who are passionate and excited about the work they do. There is plenty of opportunity to learn and expand your knowledge and technical skills.

    Cons

    I personally can't speak to any cons of working at Splunk. I've been interested in working here for a decade, and it was a dream to finally come aboard. I will say that this is a company that really values innovation, hard work, and having fun. So hopefully all of those are for you!

    I worked at Splunk full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing benefits. Maternity and paternity leave are 4 months PAID. 4 weeks paid vacation to start. Holidays you are off for two weeks PAID on company time! Company wide travels, great events, happy hours, end of quarter parties, holiday parties, etc. plethora of food and drinks stocked in every office.

    Cons

    If you are not in sales, expect to be under paid. I had been with the company for two years, had a lot of experience, we hired a receptionist(male) to assist me with duties. He was hired making 20,000 more than I (female) was doing far less duties than I did. They do not fully look into situations with employees. It’s hear say. I’ve watched people get fired over the silliest things and hard working employees get let go for no reason but because a manager simply did not like them. While other employees took advantage of splunk, the manager liked them so let things slide and never reprimanded them.
