Splunk is a bit uneasy right now but the PS team is a rare team that has their sh#t together.
Many companies now have a hiring freeze and I was worried that I would have to stay here for a while, but nevertheless, the effort paid off and I managed to get an offer. There are probably those who are very comfortable here, but it was a terrible... — read more

how did this place become so bad seemingly so fast? when did it start?
Judging by Cisco's acquisitions so far, I can't say anything good about this one. That would be a nail in the coffin for Splunk. I'm just thinking, is it better for me to look for an alternative now, or wait a little longer and see what happens next? — read more

We still don’t have a real CEO and no one cares. All management is broken
I will join splunk in EMEA South shortly. Any feedback about the team ?
Is it true there might be some cuts in the next few weeks?
