Pros: free food, ping pong table, great view from office, training devoted to tableau skills as well as public speaking, etc.
Cons: management can be hit or miss
Tableau is a perfect benchmark of solid core values, free and open culture, and how a solid foundation built by influential founders can improve every work a better place. A typical day [as a consultant] involves helping existing customers get the most out of the product and assisting with any expedited or advanced learning they may need. When a break is needed, they host a break room stocked with snacks both healthy and unhealthy as well as filtered water and different variations of other flavored drinks. Everyday involves learning something new whether its keeping up with new updates and helping with beta products, assisting with another department, or assisting in the deployment of a server or desktop product. Within my experience in Tableau, I have gained an abundance of technical as well as business skills that will be useful for years to come.
