I have been working at Tableau Software full-time (More than 3 years)
- 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
- 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

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Tableau Software (London, England) in April 2015.
the first stages are very unstructured. met mostly great people, but you can tell the company is growing quickly and, internally, struggling to keep up. I had to chase them to follow up and prep the different stages. very limited feedback after the process.
Tableau have you meet many people, potential peers, direct reports and then VP Emea of sales and head of sales ops. this all lasted almost a month. final stage is a role play which includes a product demo and a "strategy session" where you present your approach to the role and managing a team. there is lots of info to prep the role play. expectations for the strategy session felt very vague.
