    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.

    Pros

    Great engineering culture, work environment, people I work with. Great opportunity for product growth. Splunk has an amazing potential for greatness

    Cons

    Company, especially engineering, keeps shooting itself in the foot. Can't get out of its own way. Senior executives are not team players, lots of turf wars. Anyone who suggests good engineering practices gets shot down by the long termers

    Pros

    Very supportive team, good compensation and benefits. Interesting projects. Great product, our customers love our product and that makes our jobs a lot more enjoyable.

    Cons

    You really need to get to know the product to be able to fully contribute. Given that the product is highly technical the learning curve is pretty high.
