Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) – USA – March 1, 2018
I get excited about going to work every day because I get to spend the day with the smartest most fun people I know, in a professional environment designed to help us all get even smarter while having fun.
Except every two weeks, my paycheck comes in and I get sad.
Anyone else doing the work we do with the broad domain knowledge, at the pace we do it, would be making at least 30% more.
We have titles with the word Engineer, and huge amounts of cash and time are spent to make sure we get training on even more domain and product specific knowledge than we have to come in with just to get hired at all.
Pay us what we’re worth and watch how much better our work will get when we don’t rely on the free food in every kitchen because we can’t afford groceries. Watch how low the turnover gets and how easy it becomes to fill new positions or backfill when people are promoted. Or don’t, and watch as all the talented people you’ve invested so much time and assets into leave for positions at other companies that pay more for our skills.
“We want people who want to work here” is not the answer. We DO want to work here. We just would like to be able to work here and also afford to live our lives.
exponential skill growth, great people, great direct and skip-level management, good benefits, free food
pay is well below market rate for skills and title
The hiring process for me was very long. The sales focus of the company for me was a challenge. I am a technical person. Professional services with Tableau is difficult when you have a family. The culture is great and the company is fun.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – West – November 28, 2017
Tableau is a company in transition. The character and culture that got them to this point of success is rapidly changing. It's just not the same place. Great product and focus on customers. Immature management.
Senior Named Account Manager (PNW) (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 19, 2017
Tableau is a good company and provides numerous resources to sales reps to help deliver a meaningful value proposition to their customers and connect them with others who are successful with the solution.
Manager (Current Employee) – Texas – June 12, 2017
Tableau has the best culture and community of any software vendor in the market. The expectation is you still work like Tableau is a start up and success is dependent on your territory or specific role.
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 3, 2017
The core values of Tableau were part of what drew me to this company. They seemed genuine and willing to put the time into cultivating great employees. Soon however it was very clear that these were just words on paper to many people in leadership roles. You were clocked and treated as hourly employees even if you were of a salary position. Never in my years at any other company was I treated as if I were not an adult that could manage my time and workload accordingly. Many times I was told by leadership that my opinion did not matter because I was not a manager, which was clearly indicated at review time when there were no peer reviews done or manager feedback (these were both leadership discretionary calls how convenient.). I truly cared about my team and the people I worked with but leadership (of atleast my org) had no business having direct reports and no amount of free food can change that.
core values not upheld, work home life balance poor, pay poor, "we've always done it this way mentality", no career development just to name a few
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 26, 2017
Tableau was a great place to work! I enjoyed every minute learning new skills and about my colleagues. The work could be intense but we had sales goals to energize us. Management was very supportive and was always around to help.
Partner (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – May 13, 2017
Great people, great product, snacks, drinks usually available. I have really enjoyed working here until the demands to meet metrics became the main focus of the job. They are not replacing people that have left quick enough so the workload is high.
Free snacks food and drinks, great benefits and people are great. Can be fun at times.
Director (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 20, 2017
the company is very young and with that you have very immature process. They have some old leadership in place that needs to be replaced as they are literally keeping things stuck as is and value the 'legacy' more than the need to advance and make the changes - specifically in the Operations umbrella. Started as a great, young, fun company of culture but is now past that and hasn't been able to stay with the need of the employees/business and space they want to be in.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 2, 2017
While the Tableau culture overall, is great, the leading line from HR is always "we want people who want to work here" it typically means all departments with the exception of Dev, get paid about 25-50% less than the market.
Product Consultant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – March 30, 2017
Working for Tableau Software was a great experience. I worked there at a time when the company was in the process of going public and it was growing rapidly. The pay wasn't great, but the people were amazing to work with.
