What is health insurance like at Tableau Software?

Pros

- THE PEOPLE. Tableau does a great job at hiring people who are great to work with and are dedicated to their jobs. - Benefits. Fantastic health insurance, ESPP program makes up for the lame 401(k) match, free food is a great perk. - Interesting product and industry, company is growing and doing well. - Very nice buildings and facilities.

Cons

- Lack of career growth. Be prepared to stay in the role you were hired to do. And if you are offered a promotion, you will be low-balled on the salary. - Pay. Expect to make 20% less than your peers in other companies. This used to get slightly evened out by stock grants, but those have gotten much less generous. - Parking is a huge pain.

Advice to Management

Attrition is high because you refuse to pay long-time, talented employees industry standard wages. They don't need more food or free t-shirts. It doesn't make any sense to let talented people walk away when you just have to hire someone to replace them at the wage they wanted to be paid in the first place, except now you have someone who knows nothing about how the company operates.

How are the career development opportunities at Tableau Software?

Pros

- Great colleagues and atmosphere - Interesting products - Working in different areas within IT (network, database, authentication) - Great party organised by the managers - Possibility to work from home - Stock bonus - Great possibility to improve your IT skills (free certifications and free online courses)

Cons

- Too much cases for the numbers of employees, that could be quickly stressful - Could be challenging to take a week off depending of your team. - Not specific to Dublin, but globally the company is not well organised - Food (except the snake) is not so great, same for the coffee. - Culture not always respected between the different teams. - Office is not adapted and too small - Employees are regularly expected to work on cases that are out of scope - No much career opportunities, most of the interesting roles are based in US. - A lot of plastic and food waste

Advice to Management

Take a little more care of the employee instead the company statistic.

How are promotions handled at Tableau Software?

Pros

- This is the first job where I feel like my work/life balance is valued and truly in balance. Of course there are sales targets and end of quarter pressure, but that's not unlike any other sales position. - I usually go to work with a smile on my face because I know I will spend the day with a like-minded, fun and international group of people. - Customers truly love what Tableau can do for their company, which makes conversations fun. Because of the nature of the product and the focus of customers on data you typically have strategic conversations with C-level people, which (in my opinion) is more fun than solely speaking with IT. - opportunity to travel to territory for events and see customers face to face

Cons

- Tableau has transformed from being a scale-up to an enterprise company (and now acquired by Salesforce), which has brought about some cultural shifts and challenges (as evidenced by some of the negative reviews on here probably). Some promotions that didn't make sense and lack of promotions where they should have happened. There are now, however, visible changes in approach to professional development of employees. - same quotas for very different territories can skew the way success is measured.

Advice to Management

- Take a closer look (at the data!) for quotas in different territories or regions within territories

Some promotions that didn't make sense and lack of promotions where they should have happened.
