Lies, their product is a joke.

For having spent five years in this realm, I'm convinced there aren't any. Other than FB, Google, and Amazon.

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.

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

So i have been fortunate that i have managed to go through my career without the need for a degree. I was lucky enough to have been hired by one of the worlds top consulting firms, worked with a whole lot of big clients and travelled a lot. It's gotten to the point where I am not even asked about the lack of a degree on my resume. Personally though, it bothers me. I have a whole bunch of certifications in my industry…but just no formal degree. (cont'd)

I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.

I have a manager who doesn’t seem to like me very much. Talks to me in a super condescending tone like I wasn’t an experienced hire & know what I’m doing. He will flat out ignore me even on calls when I say hi or good morning. I’m not sure if it’s because he’s “old school” but once had other team mates in his office (all male) for lunch and didn’t invite me (the only female on this team). I thought I had a super progressive team but every day is telling me that’s not the case.
