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

    Pros

    Probably one of the best run larger ($1b+) tech companies out there. Solving real problems for people every day. Great benefits and overall comp. Sales targets are made with consideration and thought rather than throwing a dart at a target and saying "perfect!" Also pretty sick vibe in the office.

    Cons

    Some internal tools could be better but that will come.
