    I worked at Tableau Software full-time (More than 3 years)


    I loved my experience at Tableau! The culture, the people, and the product are all fantastic.


    There isn't a lot of opportunity for growth and it's very easy to hit your ceiling, (which is typically anything past a Sr. Manager role). Once you hit it, you can expect to stay stuck for 3 years or more unless you are willing to move to HQ. If there had been a next step for me I definitely would have stayed.

    Advice to Management

    Define career paths and opportunities. Don't make it so difficult to move from each segment of the business, (commercial, enterprise, public sector) in order to retain talent. Be transparent in pay structures. Refusing a raise to tenured and performing employees only to hire new people at an even higher salary is demoralizing.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tableau Software (Seattle, WA) in April 2019.


    Standard 4 person interview with an As Appropriate at the end if you get through the interviews. Questions were all around in a discussion format about the role and my experience that makes me suitable. Didnt have trick questions and I found myself driving most of the discussions, which was nice.
