    Pros

    Brilliant people to work with, totally mission-driven company, strong culture, great product and business model, very successful company, tons of growth opportunities. Highly recommended!

    Cons

    Palantir is a flat-hierarchy company, where you make your own path and the structure is very loose and based on merits. You also work very hard (with amazing people, on fascinating problems). If you're looking for a laid-back time, this might not be the place for you.
