      Pros

      Gold standard product that customers truly love and are fanatical about!

      Cons

      Fast moving business, Tableau has seen massive growth in the past few years, especially with recent acquisition by Salesforce. This causes some communication breakdown and hiccups at times.

      Standards have slipped since SF acquisition

      Pros

      Most people are smart, helpful, and friendly Good swag with lots of t-shirts...so. many. shirts. Excellent benefits Great office culture in Austin (pre-COVID) Lots of training opportunities and opportunities for growth if you want to follow SF's prescribed career paths. Salesforce is probably one of the least evil corporations, but a lot of the good press evaporates with the fine print.

      Cons

      Even before the SF acquisition, teams were constantly understaffed. Management always had a lot of things to say about how they were ramping hiring with little to no focus on attrition. Because of the focus on hiring, newer employees aren't nearly as technical as they used to be. Sales strategy, account teams, and management change every year. There are a handful of employees who are extremely technical but extremely rude, toxic, and seemingly above reproach. Technical Support is overworked and underpaid (much like every other company). SF acquisition has emphasized focus on case metrics, impacting CSAT. The SF acquisition has turned Tableau into a massive corporation, but there are still lots of silos and accountability gaps during the transition period. Administrative work and required trainings are constant and nearly always need time outside of the workday to complete.

      Overall great product but terrible compensation

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Tableau is a software company with so much potential but not taking full advantage of it. Good place to introduce yourself to the tech/software world. Good work-life balance, monthly wellness perks, and flexibility of working remotely.

      Cons

      Inadequate compensation. Commission/Quotas are not paid out as scheduled. Renewal Management team in Austin is laughable. High-turnover rate.

      Great Company with Management that Cares

      Pros

      - Management listens and works hard to improve - A culture of innovation: hackathons have always been encouraged, and are run pretty frequently. They have been the source of many of the best features in Tableau.

      Cons

      I really enjoyed working there, though left before the Salesforce acquisition, so I can't speak to what has changed since then.
