I have been working at Tableau Software full-time (Less than a year)

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.

    I worked at Tableau Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great product, nice catered lunches every now and then. Great product training. Pretty casual workplace and good people to work with. Seattle's boot camp was fun and you learn a lot. This place is a springboard to other opportunities elsewhere, and not usually within the company

    Cons

    Ex-Dell management with management ideas from the early 90's. management uses Excel internally at a Business Intelligence Software company - irony? Measure on metrics and its kind of a sweatshop to make calls.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the Dell managers and bring in some senior Tableau managers who know the job and how to do it
