    I worked at Tableau Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very flexible on the working hours. Great people. Very smart colleagues. Sales are up and shares are up as well.

    Cons

    They are hiring managers that don't have a clue about how complex the product is. Thus, they think the job in supporting our customers is easy and we can close the cases as fast as possible. Stress level in support is very high. Managers only follow what their director tells them. No heart for the employees working on the tickets.

    Advice to Management

    If volume of cases and workload is high, please outsource and don't drag people to the ground.

    I have been working at Tableau Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The local management is positive, open to change and feedback. True passion for the product is echoed in every employee. There is a considerable amount invested in employee engagement.

    Cons

    Growth is somewhat limited in the smaller regions (200 employees or less), employee retention is not as high as it could be.

    Advice to Management

    Get Executive buy-in to execute more transparency in communication, and a clear career path for each role.

    I have been working at Tableau Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People used to be good, till they all left

    Cons

    No pay increases to compensate performance and inflation Clients are leaving and the retention rate is no longer advertised Stagnent product development, Microsoft and Qlik have now surpassed Tableau on Gartner magic quadrant.

    Advice to Management

    Why have so many left in 2018? What has been done to address the problem? Stop pointing fingers and use your own tool to fix the problem.

      I have been working at Tableau Software full-time

      Pros

      A Gartner leader who've paved the way for the Modern BI revolution we're now experiencing, and a driving force in the ubiquity of analytics in business. Market opportunity in front of us is massive, and those who are along for this ride stand to benefit greatly in their careers.

      Cons

      With any rapid growth company, you're bound to experience challenges in communication or other growing pains. In an environment of constant change, little things can get overlooked and can cause some discomfort.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on employee morale and engagement, open communication, and reward your company builders. This is an opportunity most people will never get in their careers, and it never hurts to be reminded of that from time to time.

      Pros

      Great culture, flexibility in working hours, generous travel budget, transparent policy

      Cons

      Some teams do not have well set-up processes and thus it is confusing to most employees on how to collaborate with certain teams sometime, which may in turn result in conflict of interest.

      I worked at Tableau Software full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Friendly, open, pro-learning culture. Programs to help employees meet and build relationships. Great customers and employees.

      Cons

      I feel like the new leadership team is taking the company away from some of the signature policies that made the company new and exciting such as remote working, autonomous work, flexible schedules and working more like past large companies.

      Advice to Management

      Autonomy in work and flexible schedules are important to workers. Being treated like a replaceable cog in a wheel does not produce loyal or happy employees.
