    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.

    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.
