    I worked at Tableau Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most people are smart, helpful, and friendly Good swag with lots of t-shirts...so. many. shirts. Excellent benefits Great office culture in Austin (pre-COVID) Lots of training opportunities and opportunities for growth if you want to follow SF's prescribed career paths. Salesforce is probably one of the least evil corporations, but a lot of the good press evaporates with the fine print.

    Cons

    Even before the SF acquisition, teams were constantly understaffed. Management always had a lot of things to say about how they were ramping hiring with little to no focus on attrition. Because of the focus on hiring, newer employees aren't nearly as technical as they used to be. Sales strategy, account teams, and management change every year. There are a handful of employees who are extremely technical but extremely rude, toxic, and seemingly above reproach. Technical Support is overworked and underpaid (much like every other company). SF acquisition has emphasized focus on case metrics, impacting CSAT. The SF acquisition has turned Tableau into a massive corporation, but there are still lots of silos and accountability gaps during the transition period. Administrative work and required trainings are constant and nearly always need time outside of the workday to complete.

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

    Pros

    Tableau being a fantastic tool to use. Beneficial for the life time. Internal transfer applicable in 1 year only so that you can get out of that toxic slum Pay is great After graduation from tableau GC team, congrats you are a well-trained inside sales that can survive any other workplace pua environment with zero enterprise skill sets

    Cons

    being in the center of the root of all evils -- Tableau GC team in singapore, one requires exceptional surviving skills to overcome 1. to be derogated and suppressed your personality and dignity thru words or actions by your bosses 2, Army/military kind of compliant to everything you are told to do; 3. Everything business strategy of your own is denial by default where diversity must be slaughtered. GC Management is freak and afraid to lose grip so they love passing the buck and they dont speak proper English nor have any sense of SEA business logic or people management skills that lead to a dramatic high rate employee churn

    Pros

    - Management listens and works hard to improve - A culture of innovation: hackathons have always been encouraged, and are run pretty frequently. They have been the source of many of the best features in Tableau.

    Cons

    I really enjoyed working there, though left before the Salesforce acquisition, so I can't speak to what has changed since then.
