    Great Benefits-Nice people

    CEO Approval

    Pros

    Great benefits being a salesforce company. There has been a big focus on wellness this year and they try to make things family friendly as they can in a pandemic world

    Cons

    Too many cooks in the kitchen and role clarity across the organization not exactly defined. Leads to redundancy or holes.

    Tableau lost its groove

    Oct 27, 2021 - Program Manager in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    * Truly excellent product to be proud of working on * Super smart and kind folks to learn from * Solid benefits, including paid volunteer time off * SF actually does throw its weight around on social & environmental issues in a way that makes you feel good

    Cons

    * Salesforce made a GREAT sales pitch about the acquisition, but that good sales pitch isn't reality * Senior and tenured employees are leaving in droves — far more than a typical M&A — due to changes in how work gets done, talked about, and prioritized in the new Salesforce world * Most employees do NOT use the product anymore and have no incentive to do so — and no repercussions for straight-up refusing to learn (a thing that is becoming common) * It has become harder to operate in ambiguity and harder to operate in general with all the extra SF training, enablement, weekly All Hands, VPN-switching, clunky security (sometimes 2FA more like 4 or 8FA), and admin overhead * Fewer opportunities for internal mobility and compensation growth * A lot more "just outsource that new headcount to India" behavior * The stock cliff has gotten far worse after the acquisition for lower-level employees — higher level ICs and managers are looked after marginally better

    Pros

    Benefits some of the best, people are great, innovation prioritized

    Cons

    You now sell Tableau and Salesforce products, you are expected to waste time training on products you arent paid on . Role clarity a problem, lots of red tape on growth now that wasnt there before

    Growing Pains, Lots of Change

    Sep 2, 2021 - Sales 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Many intelligent, empathetic, and curious coworkers; Smart and hardworking customers who are doing amazing things with the product; From Salesforce there are many great employee benefits and access to resources as well as potential for strong product roadmap; Company is period of change, could be opportunities with the turnover

    Cons

    Inconsistent management style and lack of clarity of what success/path to promotion looks like, probably due to many front line managers who are in management roles for the first time; Little diversity of any kind, often feels like a boys club and issues aligning on inclusivity outside of lip service; High turnover makes change and confusion on responsibilities the norm; Lack of clarity on vision and product integration makes sales difficult at times

    Legacy Employees need to be paid more

    Aug 11, 2021 - Senior Account Executive in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good work life balance at Tableau and Salesforce. Extremely friendly, good benefits, and good on resume. Work from anywhere is a plus

    Cons

    Legacy Salaries far below current market which is frustrating. Quotas are somewhat reasonable, but dependent upon the accounts you are assigned and can be volatile.

    Industry Leading Product but Ignorant Attitudes

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They have an industry leading product and nice offices in Seattle. They understand and practice Agile SDLC, and we even had a team coach for awhile. Hopefully the merger with Salesforce makes the company better.

    Cons

    Remarkably in the middle of Fremont numerous coworkers freely expressed their negative LGBT views to me, often in front of several other people. I actually am and always have been celibate, but I used to be an LGBT advocate. In the past this has resulted in me ending up in multiple conflicts with the family values people. Most of my coworkers were actually somewhat considerate, but the ones that were not seemed fully enabled to do whatever they wanted. My first day our development lead called me a scum. The next day several coworkers called me a gay slur. The next day after that I was accused of being a child molester, which our vice president then repeated a few months later. These were all false allegations that have been promoting for quite some time as retaliation for setbacks that they have suffered trying to put me in my place.
