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

    Pros

    Excellent training programme which starts in Seattle HQ training you in Tableau's products and sales messages. It's hard not to be motivated in the company's ambitions. Some of the nicest colleagues that I've come across anywhere.

    Cons

    The services organisation in EMEA does not take the opportunity to provide role based training and development to new team members. If you cannot already fully fulfil on the job you will quickly be shown the door. It was evident that Regional Delivery Manages are not adding any value. Rather than doing this they could be seen creating or seeking problems to justify their existence especially with the pending... Salesforce merger. Training for the Tableau Product is great but role based training is absent. This is evident across all levels of management. The current role based training that exists is reading an on boarding guide. The organisation does not have time to provide mentoring as discussed in these documents.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend Salesforce flatten the organisational structure and further managers' training. Regional Delivery Managers in EMEA would benefit from choosing to focus on developing and motivating their teams alongside adding value to the organisation. Senior Directors in Global Services would benefit from delivering role based training to new starters and existing team members. Developing a culture of open and honest... feedback with coaching to support team members in areas where performance is not ideal would be perfect.

    Pros

    Great London Office. Free Food, Good onboarding. Staff are very friendly and there is a perceived amazing culture but in reality its not quite what it seems until you are a few months into the job.

    Cons

    Real cuthroat environment. Middle management do not inspire creative thinking. Instead you are indoctrinated in the one size fits all approach pushed down by HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Have some flexibility in the way that you manage your teams. Dont just be middle management.

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

    Pros

    The technology is amazing and really does provide a lot of value to its customers. EMEA direct sales and the presales team are full of amazing people.

    Cons

    The amount of middle managers and internal politics is out of control. They are bringing in more and more old school Oracle-y senior people and slowly turning what used to be an absolutely amazing company and work environment into a cocktail of micromanagement and finger pointing. This has resulted in almost a stampede of brilliant and talented people leaving the team. To leave an even more bitter taste in my... mouth it has taken me almost three months to get my outstanding commissions sorted. It was settled but probably only because I put in a ton of work on following up with sales ops, commissions, HR and almost everyone else.
