    Amazing Place to Work

    Aug 12, 2021 - Senior Marketing Technologist in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I've worked at Tableau now for 3.5 years and I love it. The people are really smart and collaborative and the environment is fast-paced and always changing.

    Cons

    Feels a little more corporate-y now that we are owned by Salesforce and I miss the start-up vibe. More levels of approval now.

    Falling apart

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits Tableau the product is great and easy to sell The people are awesome

    Cons

    Culture has crumbled in a remote world and with the Salesforce takeover. Feels like management is doing the bare minimum at all times for their team and only focused on improving their own career paths. No communication from leadership on the path to a promotion and lots of new rules because of Salesforce. Yet be prepared at the end of each year to be bounced to a new team or territory with zero say and then told you have to stay there for a minimum of 6 months. Sales enablement is a joke. Management spends zero time mentoring, training or even reviewing deals with their team. Pay is way below market. Nearly everyone is unhappy and looking to leave this sinking ship. Working with Salesforce Core AEs is a nightmare. Most are rude and condescending and actually are pushing Tableau OUT of deals but management is scared of SF leadership and so don't say anything.

    Legacy Employees need to be paid more

    Aug 11, 2021 - Senior Account Executive in Seattle, WA

    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.

    Freakishly friendly, viz fascinated, consensus seeking

    Sep 26, 2021 - Senior Manager in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Passionate, smart and very friendly people. - Inclusive : tableau public is free - Investment in (scientific/experimental) research - Client & Tableau-expert focused - Tableau Foundation: Social impact is more than just a grant. It is a chance for everyone to learn and share different ideas about creating real change in our world. That's why we bring all that we have to give--software, people, partners--to the table, and scale successful projects far and wide.

    Cons

    - Consensus seeking, risk averse culture - White-male dominant leadership. - Still leaning on it’s legacy from 2011: Tableau desktop

    Great Company with Management that Cares

    Mar 26, 2021 - Staff Software Engineer in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    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.

    Fantastic Place to Work

    Dec 29, 2020 - Intern 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Lots of flexibility; room to work on projects outside your immediate domain, with other teams in other locations - Great balance; employees know how to have fun but also how to buckle down and get work done - Growth opportunities; lots of potential for internal mobility among different roles - Responsiveness; management seemed very receptive to hearing employees concerns, and seemed to create a very friendly environment - Product; everyone at Tableau LOVES Tableau. Truly impressive how much employees adore the product and the mission

    Cons

    - Diversity; like all software companies, could do better fostering a more diverse workplace (though they certainly do better than most similar companies) - New Hire opportunities; not a ton of position options for new grads, which is kind of disappointing (though understandable)

    Used to be a great place to work

    Jul 13, 2021 - Senior Product Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Tableau is a good product. When I started, Stolte still ran the shop, and the mission was key. Learned a lot about human-centric design.

    Cons

    After Stolte departed, the company became much more like any other employer. From what I hear, the mission has been completely lost in the sale to Salesforce.

    Overall great product but terrible compensation

    May 10, 2021 - Customer Renewal Manager in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    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.
