More looking from a culture, pace of work, growth opportunity perspective. I (think) I'm aware of what they do operationally.

Additionally the role seems like a consultant role. Client facing, heavy travel, managing projects. Don't really know anyone working at Palantir so looking for any information

So I can’t speak from direct experience, but I have several friends who have worked there in the past 8 years and their experience has been similar. From a data science/engineering side, there’s limited mobility or growth in the sense that Palantir has a product, they have zero interest in changing it, so after you work there a few years you’re bored. It’s also somewhat toxic because opportunities for promotion don’t really exist.

On the consulting side, you’ll spend a large amount of time at client site, because Palantir is proprietary and doesn’t let clients tweak parameters themselves (one of the governments biggest issues with them) but instead deploys engineers and others to do that for them.

My bottom line on the company is that there is probably room for growth with local law enforcement or even state law enforcement, but the main client they’ve had for years (ie the the US government) is going to wean themselves off slowly but surely.

I'm trying to play defence to make sure my team holds clear ground to get their technical focus time - but I need it too so that I can continue to contribute technically.

I'm looking for ways to push back and say no firmly and respectful to the execs.

They're too used to just delegating and signing off on decisions for this sitch.
