grep for "Palantir S-1". Here's a few for your convenience, haven't read them recently so you'll have to denoise yourself:

The total comp is generally below FAANG+M. I guess that might change for the better in the short run...

"I hope for Palantir that they hire different people than Accenture or McK do. I had the "pleasure" to work with their ML and IT folks. Wich was, with some exceptions, quite catastrophic. "

@Maggette what are the differences?

Maybe a better comparison is Red Hat, which also monetizes their tech through consulting?

I don't know the differences, because I never worked with Palantir folks.

I just worked with McK, Accenture and some BCG guys.
The sample is small, but apart from some exception in the best case they were young, quite bright and motivated.....but were sold to the projects as senior engineers and/or experts in ML...which they were clearly not.

I learned a few things from them, because I learn a few things from virtually everybody and juniors have a different perspective on things. But in the most part I trained and guided them.

Ich kam hierher und sah dich und deine Leute lächeln, und sagte mir: Maggette, scheiss auf den small talk, lass lieber deine Fäuste sprechen...
