The people you work with our nice The pay is good The insurance is EXCELLENT
Project's can and will change at a moment's notice. You might be on a team and a project one month to see a quick shift in priorities without notice, and then again a short-time later. There is a lack of proper onboarding leaving new employees feeling like they have been thrown in the deep-end. Couple that with my prior complaint, and only the most senior engineers truly have a leg-up. Which brings me to a lack of a knowledge-sharing culture. Asking questions of teammates is not encouraged at all. When questions are asked from the very basic, to the very niche product questions that only a long-time engineer would know, this will be reported as negative feedback as a later date. Managers are not very knowledgeable in tech-areas, and are too business oriented. This whole thing creates a loop of employee's who are undertrained, and cannot ask questions or are afraid to for fear of negative feedback, who are then forced to create sub-par work and get increasingly negative feedback for it.

If you're in management or in a lead role, then lots of time to play video games during work hours while the rest of us are constantly churning out content and fixing buggy code for customers. It's sad to see what has happened to Research organization. A lot of lazy people not doing their jobs or stepping in during a manufactured crisis in order to justify meaning to c-level stakeholders. Do not be fooled executive leaders! They're a lazy lot and a good majority of them are milking. Look at the recent retention failures. The high performers are leaving because recognition is cherry picked.
Sadly, it is an extremely toxic and unhealthy place to work. Look at the other reviews on Glassdoor. People complain of having ptsd and depression from the environment and culture. Basically, the leadership here are angry middle-aged white men with entirely way too much free time on their hands. This is very much a known issue within the company.16

Tenable has been a positive corporation to work for. Fairly solid.
Vision, execution, and communication can be poor at times.

- Good pay - Delivery teams and managers are great
- Executives are way too focused on short-term sales figures rather than building a scalable platform - Engineers spend 90% of their time investigating "urgent" customer support tickets that constantly interrupt other work - Only way to succeed and actually get stuff done is to work 60+ hrs / week - The on-call is insanely bad5
- 4.0Oct 3, 2023Senior Software EngineerFormer Employee, more than 8 yearsColumbia, MD
- Cares about their employees, offering competitive salaries, great benefits, employee events (hackathons), 401k, and tuition reimbursement - Great for career growth - Leader in vulnerability management - Excellent leadership at the executive and director levels
- On-call can be pretty brutal, depending on where you work. - Priorities can shift constantly which makes context switching constantly happen. Tech debt is always mounting too. - Staffing shortages and constant team restructuring make things difficult too

Good Pay, Good Benefits, Used to have Remote Work Great job security unless you don't keep your head down near spiteful directors.
Director level management and above is severely lacking. Blindly copies every move other companies do to bump the stock price. Layoffs in an unrelated firm? Layoffs at Tenable, even if Tenable is doing great. Hybrid work at other firms? Hybrid work there, for anyone within 40 miles of a hub, even if they've done the job great for years without being in an office. They're trying to bump stock price for the sole purpose of getting themselves acquired by a bigger company so they can get a nice payday and flee, just like the years long rush towards IPO. Some managers tend to form grudges and target layoffs and firings, to try and cut salary costs. Hiring is non-existent, overall faith in upper management decisions is low. Remote hiring is gone, local hiring lacks funds. Travel budget slashed. Tenable's products have vastly deceased in quality over the years, trying to hop on the latest fads and trends. Tenable products have become pricy upsells in search of a purpose, rather than products designed to accomplish a specific goal. As long as you toe the management line, it doesn't matter how much of a terrible job you do, nothing bad will happen to you and there will be no consequences. There are entire teams of employees at Tenable who routinely do a bad job and rely on other teams to clean up the mess they made in their bed. It doesn't pay to work for the cleaners.9

Engineers and Architects really talented and helpful to each other
CEO and VPs have wasted hundreds of millions buying Cloud security start ups and failing miserably and still collecting fat compensation7
