      Approves of CEO

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

      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.

      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...

      Great working environment and truly collegiate. The product/company loyalty from both its employees and customers is unique - I have not experienced this in previous companies!

      Cons

      Growing pains, but in a good way and it keeps the challenge alive!

      I worked at Tableau Software full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      A sales job at Tableau is usually pretty easy to get, just memorize a demo and you're in! It actually is a great product, so the conversations you'll have with customers are enjoyable. The office is cool and in a nice location. Work-life balance is good.

      Cons

      Since the job is so easy to get, you'll often find yourself surrounded by people that bring so little to the table that it makes you question your own career choices. Then there's the micromanagement, which one finds at every company with a few thousand people, but Tableau takes the cake; there are so many layers and so many "managers" that add absolutely no value (unless, of course, value is defined as lowering employee...

      Advice to Management

      Unfortunately, a culture has been created in which honest feedback is not appreciated. However, try to listen to your employees (and act on it) and stop creating more bureaucracy than necessary.

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

      Pros

      Free food, great location, beautiful office. Colleagues were helpful and nice, atmosphere was ok.

      Cons

      No flexibility on schedule for people who commute, immature managers lacking experience and people skills, micromanaging was the norm. HR should be more involved in people's problems and come up with viable solutions and make sure managers are equipped with proper tools to manage teams.

      Advice to Management

      hire experienced managers who actually know how to do their job. Stop micromanaging employees and be more transparent in your decisions.
