      How's Splunk's refresh stocks? Also how's Splunk's annual bonus and other financial perks? My recruiter didn't give me much details.

      Does Splunk offer employee's parking spot in SF?

      Answering above questions:
      Splunk employees get subsidized parking spots in the garage right next to the SF building. Santana Row location parking is free.
      Stock refresh happens annually starting from year two of your employment.
      Annual bonus is 10% unless you’re a customer success manager - they get 25%.
      Other financial perks are in line with most tech companies.

    Splunk hands down. PayPal has very bad upper management. They seem to hire a lot of 'hackgrads' over CS engineers.

    Overall I'd say go for splunk. They pay well.
