Pros

You work on a great product that makes a real difference in people's lives. Great company culture, great leadership and vision, and a great breadth and depth of technologies and challenges.

Cons

Growth brings challenges and the company will have to work hard to avoid becoming like the big behemoths that it is currently disrupting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great job thinking big - now think small too! Small company spirit, small team flexibility, small code base quality, keep innovating and don't be afraid to keep disrupting even ourselves.

    Pros

    Tableau manages to combine the best aspects of working for a start-up- rapid growth, constant challenges- with the benefits of a more established company- fiscal stability, sensible leadership, seeing employees as significant parts of how we achieve as a whole rather than as chattel.

    Cons

    Depending on your resistance of temptations, you may find yourself putting on weight here- it's a several-times-a-week occurrence that food is brought in for something or other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. It's working, and the results are showing. To have grown this rapidly over the past few years, and with the 'flight path' plotted for the future looking reasonable, it's testimony to and validation of making the right decisions.

    Pros

    Working on software that people actually want to use is always a plus. Despite fast growth, the people all seem to be on the same team, and are all quite capable.

    Cons

    Old code base with a fair number of Windows-specific assumptions, with no good way to learn.

    Remote meetings never really work well, lots of time wasted setting these up.
