Lies, their product is a joke.

Yeah no consulting really does it as good as the big tech companies. We can help smaller guys / big F500 companies bring their capabilities to a more mature level, but doesn't touch what FB/G/A are doing. we actually have some pretty strong analytics teams, lot of custom solution development using Python and other tools we build.

1000 employees, 10 billion in revenue. Most of the recruiting happens from Stanford, caltech, MIT. Free breakfast, lunch, dinner. Can bring your dogs to work as well. Lots of other perks. The average employee at palantir makes more than most of you in consulting btw, while working half the time :)

No real product, more like throwing people on a problem. 20% turn over and they pay people below market rate. They work on hype like most tech companies.

like

They don't do Analytics. The do data loading and aggregation and visualization, and they don't do the visualization part well. They try to be consultants, but they're not.

We are hiring and have really interesting projects. Entire group based on advanced analytics in fact

Can someone explain why palantir's product is a joke? Or why palantir doesn't fit the bill that the OP laid out? Genuinely curious.

Backing from NSA/CIA as well, so relative job security and immunity from market changes

Probably the smartest guy from undergrad I encountered went to Palantir, and I've heard nothing but great things about their product, until this post. Certainly am interested to hear well-informed dissent though.

Are they're consulting-type roles at palantir? Like I wouldn't be coding but I would understand it and help sell / identify opportunities to apply solutions?

Who do you work for SC1?

Does the advanced analytics work described by OP require years of coding in python/SAS/SPSS? I have some coding background but mainly experience lies in applied math/stats

Agree with PwC 2, no consulting firm does data science at the level of tech firms of any size. Most data scientist you'll find in consulting are ppl from banks/insurers who used to be called quants or credit modelers. A few research oriented guys will have phD backgrounds but get bored after a year or two and leave

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions?
