      Pros

      Gold standard product that customers truly love and are fanatical about!

      Cons

      Fast moving business, Tableau has seen massive growth in the past few years, especially with recent acquisition by Salesforce. This causes some communication breakdown and hiccups at times.

      Pros

      Great product to sell Great salary, Great benefits, Great work life balance

      Cons

      It is not what it appears to be. There is a lack of support across the board. Being told to inflate pipeline doesn’t solve the problem, just shifts the blame to someone else. Lots of senior leadership leaving which shows the change and transition within the company. There is a culture of saying everyone has a here to help, but actually people only care about their personal agendas. Those that want to truly help their customers are stifled by process, and lack of support. It is a great product so it is a shame to see the company fall short of its potential

      Pros

      Have so much love left for Tableau. One of the best run companies I worked for. Fast changes and high performance environment - so you need to keep learning and stay on your toes. You were surrounded by mostly clever and very driven people. Product is fantastic. Very sales focused where most operations were streamlined with focus on always improving.

      Cons

      Individual contributors were of very high caliber. Often let down by less experienced middle management. Often internal promotions were down to slight favoritism where people may not have been ready nor did they have good mentors to learn from. Low diversity in enterprise sales and management which seemed to go unacknowledged.

      Pros

      Great company culture and benefits Strong product offering in a competitive landscape Broad team expertise and capability to draw on Constant updates and improvements to product

      Cons

      Annual quotas for AE's territories do not match with reality Demotivating vast majority of enterprise team with unachievable targets Not taking historical data into account when planning for new FY, as a data & analytics software specialist, is madness
