Good for getting started in a career, not good for experienced professionals

Pros

There is a lot of entry-level scripted sales and product training, emphasis on required certifications to ensure employee readiness, and many nice career growth opportunities for new graduates that do not have high salary or commission needs. Most Tableau staff are very young, go-getter professionals.

Cons

Ex-SAP management and inexperienced management are a real downer in what could be a great place to work. Experienced professionals are not valued due to the simplicity of the Tableau solution. There is a cultural divide between new and original Tableau, role overlaps, over ambitiously set quotas, and growing pains.

Advice to Management

With significantly increased competition in what used to be a unique niche market, revisit the transactional sales approach, upgrade/change management, and add more true enterprise level sales reps into the equation.

    Pros

    Tableau has everything that a company needs to go big from an awesome product, unmatched marketing and training, sky-rocketing revenues and happy customers.

    Cons

    Tableau has a "Good to Great" culture which is good and bad so bring your A-game or be prepared to be moved out quickly. They don't hesitate to make changes to keep them number 1. The pressure is growing as so are the revenues and now stock price.

    Advice to Management

    You obviously have a winning formula and a great managent team and board so keep it up.
