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

    Pros

    Splunk is an outstanding company to work for, and what a place to kickstart your sales career. Salary are market value, nothing to get too excited about but you do get signing share bonus vested over 4 years.

    Cons

    Benefits look better than they seem: 1. Wellness/Gym membership only gives you 20% off, which doesn't amount to much considering the Nuffield Gyms are over-priced anyhow 2. Employee Stock programme only gives 15% discount - aside from the diversification argument, considering you have to pay tax and CGT on the amount, it seems amazing but isn't.
