I have been working at Tableau Software (More than a year)
Friendly atmosphere which permeates from the top down. Nobody's ego appears to be getting the way of getting the job done.
I get to work on cool stuff that regularly shows up in our big product demos.
Despite hiring a ton of new people in the past couple years, company has managed to retain most of its older engineering workforce; they've all been very knowledgeable and helpful.
This company throws the best parties. Tableau Conference is a blast; people inside and outside the company always seem genuinely excited about the product & seeing new features.
This was by far the most generous compensation package I was offered out of three companies when I took the job. Don't know how it still compares, and the stock price took a huge hit this year, but still seems really good.
Work-life balance is great compared to some other local software giants. I work a 40-hour week and have never taken flak for it.
Difficult for some in leadership to shake bad habits/practices they learned at Microsoft.
Still not sure how we're going to complete with Power BI, which is cheap or free & good enough for a lot of our potential customers.
Some of the build and test infrastructure wasn't ready for a giant influx of new people; that still slows us down.
Advice to Management
Dev leadership wants to install agile/scrum/continuously releasable, which is great, but most of the rest of the company hasn't followed suit yet. Executive leaders still want to dictate exactly what features ship and when, which doesn't work with agile/scrum. Stop doing that please. We're moving away from numbered "major" releases, which is a good start. Would be nice to go to a subscription model so we could stop supporting old releases & just focus on the next new release.

I applied online. I interviewed at Tableau Software (Redmond, WA (US)) in May 2017.
The HR was quite easy to communicate with. Set up a 1 hour screening interview. I thought it went well enough to get me an Onsite interview. A bit miffed that it did not happen. The interviewer did not seem to have as much experience and was filling in for someone else so there was definitely a gap in the technical conversation. I guess that worked against me.
