    I worked at Splunk (More than a year)

    Pros

    Money, percs, food, liquor, and the original Splunkers the few that remained and actually still work were pretty cool.

    Cons

    Politics, mediocre management, politics, people fighting in meeting, politics, bad PM, big egos with low talent, half the people don't work are drunk most of the time and are just vesting into retirement. It's a sinking ship.

    I have been working at Splunk full-time

    Pros

    Great company, California culture, pay is good, cranky people are specifically not allowed.

    Cons

    Solution itself starts simple, but can become complex and you have to learn a lot. If that's not your gig, look for something simpler.

    I worked at Splunk full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The most talented education team I ever worked with (30+ years in hi-tech). Love the product and the entrepreneurial spirit of the company, when I first joined.

    Cons

    I worked from home due to a lack of space, so I did not not SEE things. However, when I left, in late fall 2016, I noticed that the corporate culture was changing, as I suppose it must. There seemed to be more silos and the company was more corporate. Also, a tendency to hire those you know, which can be good, made for a less diverse team that one would hope for, especially in education. A significant lack of female trainers and trainers of color.

    Advice to Management

    Read the above. Support for Women in Tech is great, but when it isn't pushed down to departments, what's the point?

    I have been working at Splunk full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very inclusive environment, with everyone being on the same journey.
    Leadership is strong and has a clear path on how we are going to achieve our goals.
    Success is celebrated and enjoyed. A lot is done in the office in London to ensure that everyone enjoys working at Splunk - so it is not just about the sales people.

    Cons

    It's not exactly a downside, but the pace the company is moving at is FAST. Change is the one constant in Splunk - so a lot is always needing to be done. You need to keep up!

    Advice to Management

    More needs to be done to show internal career progression, rather than hiring from outside. In particular more learning & development needs to be offered to help employees on this journey.

    Pros

    Splunk pays well, encourages employees to work hard, but they play even harder! They truly provide all of the tools necessary to be great at your job!

    Cons

    There is a very steep learning curve when starting with the company. There is lots of training for several months just to learn how to use work with the software.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! So far, management has been extremely encouraging professionally as well as personally.

    Pros

    Interesting product with some really great people spread across the business. Breakfast and lunch included. Cool, well located offices in London and Reading

    Cons

    Poor management across the inside sales team. Micromanagement from self acclaimed ' analytical leaders'
    The office is becoming a double glazing call centre. Managers with no social skills who sit by themselves in meeting rooms sending snotty emails about sales force activity. It's a shame because there are some amazing people here at Splunk. I strongly advise against considering a position in the inside sales team. There is no leadership just unjustified barriers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real management with a genuine, intellectual understanding of the industry, people and market.

    Pros

    Great product/solution. Technical team solid, commited and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Poor, weak, inexperienced, management, lack of strategic plans and vision to grow the business as mandated by the US. Not to be trusted. You'll be ok if you are 'connected' in the right way with the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look at the next 3-5 years and put some strategic well thought out, executable plans in place that will work for the company, its employees and the customers
