I have been working at Tableau Software full-time (more than an year)

Pros

-The people are smart and working toward a common mission
-Executive team is easily accessible, friendly - the CEO and CFO know a majority of the team by first name. Pretty impressive!
-Good transparency to the business, which relates to our mission and makes me feel confident in our product
-Benefits are insanely good
-Food, and lots of it.
-The parties are like no other corporate event you've been to

Cons

Still working on a startup mentality. Many people take pay cuts and demotions to work for Tableau. But those who have been with the company are still being paid very little comparatively.

Unclear/unstructured path for career growth and development

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more into career development and growing you current employees to groom for higher positions instead of hiring outside.

    Pros

    Growing company
    Free Food
    Excellent product and market

    Cons

    Poor internal systems. Information is disconnected and found in silos in company.
    Sales folks are underpaid and given unreasonable goals/quotas
    No matter how hard you work and what you accomplish it wont be good enough. expect to put in 70+ hours a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in New management that has experience. We need to stop running everything iike a start up. Empower your employees. manage company with department budgets and allow employees to be creative

    Very fast paced, fun environment, however, sales reps treated like a number in a hamster wheel.

    Pros

    They hire pretty intelligent and talented people. Culture is very work hard, play hard. Good product in its space, with innovative engineers. Good camaraderie between team members.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites. You have to conform to their sales methodology. Territories are not created equal, leads to poor moral between teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a genuine care for your sales team and their success, rather than only interested in hitting your own goals.
