    I have been working at Tableau Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has great products with high demand and good brand awareness. Working as a Sales Area Manager for nearly 3 years I have seen the team grow from around 20 to a 100 plus and management make the long serving employees feel appreciated, always willing to take advice and thoughts on how things are going. I know other people have had bad experience with the management team, certainly in EMEA (as most of the management have been externally hired and have less experience than the actual sales team!!) but overall very good - the kitchen with free food is a huge bonus.

    Cons

    Hours can be long - it's often frowned upon to leave any time before 6pm (even if you started at 7am!) - if you don't integrate well with the team and management (make yourself heard) you could find yourself out of the door very quickly (a few people were literally collected at their desk and asked to leave after failing probation) - but I would stress that this is not common - and most of the people thath ave been hired have been very successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must focus on developing well defined career paths, make more of an effort to get to know the team better (certainly in EMEA)

    Great Product and Immense Potential, Negatively Impacted by Weak Senior Management

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

    Pros

    A fantastic company started by smart people with a clear vision that they have successfully turned into a reality. The product is amazing and the customers love Tableau, they are engaged and friendly, customer relationships can feel more like "coffee with a friend" than a corporate meeting. American benefits such as a kitchen full of sweets, chocolates and fizzy drinks (if you like that sort of thing) and plenty of beers in the pub next door to celebrate a big deal closing!

    Cons

    A lot of management in EMEA do not seem qualified for their level of leadership, a common error in such fast paced companies. People have been promoted into roles due to circumstance and tenure not necessarily because they are well suited. Focus is ONLY on the number, No people development, no basic HR support, no excuses when the number isn't there. Senior management live in the data and create a culture far removed from the one Tableau speaks to. Disorganized goals, slow responses, and a splatter gun approach to priorities are a daily occurrence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important to not just recognise changes to be made but actually make them and put the "lead" back in Leadership. There are some AMAZING people in Tableau who are passionate and hard working and would be a shame to lose them

    I worked at Tableau Software full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Overall great company and dynamic environment! I liked it here: great people, approachable managers,supportive coworkers,stuffed kitchen-free drinks and food,flexible with small breaks, ownership of your business, opportunities to learn a great product and earn lots of money

    Cons

    Highly competitive,confusing structure, new company, sometimes people can be focused only on doing numbers, they would come early and stay work late and due to time difference with HQ meetings organised after 5.30pm which is time to leave, but you MUST stay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganise the structure and specify certain responsibilities and rules, don't require people to come earlier or stay longer as you can cause them burn out; everyone working in Tableau love it so please the people who bring you money

    I worked at Tableau Software full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Many young people, good product, good working environment (most people enjoy working there) free food and drinks. team building events

    Cons

    startup company in Europe with high expectations and below average salary. understaffed support department, many sales people and high targets. highly competitive space.. Tableau has a great product, but much smaller than the competition atm. Being a Data company, everything is highly KPI and Datadriven. Much of the management is young and inexperienced. Sales people are expected to be Sales Engineers to a great extend. You will only succeed and be happy here if you truly love BI and data and enjoy working with like minded people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    could be a much more fun place to work if everything was not so data driven. Hire more consultants to assist the sales people.
