    Pros

    Splunk has a decent atmosphere and some smart people. The other teams I saw seemed to be pretty organized and the company is doing well.

    Cons

    My team was poorly organized. I was actually discouraged from asking for help and collaborating. The people I met were not very welcoming and the atmosphere was very cliquey and hard to feel comfortable in.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell people not to ask questions, it gives the wrong impression.

    Pros

    Good benefits, amenities and stock compensation is quite high.

    Cons

    Lower levels of management are relatively "weak" meaning they mostly play politics. Isn't particularly engineering focused. "Big" personalities walk over and bully "small" personalities.

    Advice to Management

    Each link in the management chain needs to be strong or else everything below it falls apart.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment made the initial stages interesting and the work was challenging and rewarding. Every day was a new experience but it was fun.

    It is important to communicate the changes to employees in a planned manner so that they are not blind sighted. This keeps them more engaged.
