      Tremendously Fast Company Growth.

      Pros

      The employees and management tend to be very kind and understanding, the benefits are excellent. There's a lot of "morale events" and free food, which are nice!

      Cons

      The company is growing much faster than it can handle adjusting to. There is a high turnover as a result, and a lot of burnout in the senior employees.

      Great Work Life Balance and Opportunities

      Pros

      * My manager is one of the best I've had. They embody the mindset of using projects to grow the team, as opposed to using people to get projects done. I respect that a lot and see people on my team growing as a result. * People are really nice over here. They're all professional and support each other. It feels like the teams are working together rather than competing against each other. * Work life balance is amazing. 3 weeks starting vacation, lots of sick days, meetings are usually scheduled to start/end between 10-5.

      Cons

      * The company is growing at a good pace, however we need more space for everyone. You won't be sharing your desk with another person, but you may have to deal with finding your own parking spot if you drive.

      Pros

      Great mission, humble smart people. Plenty of opportunities for personal growth and improving how things work. I feel lucky and proud to be part of the journey

      Cons

      It’s a growing company- you’ve got to be ok with change and ambiguity. IMHO though, that’s a great problem to have.

      Pros

      Tableau has a great culture that brings in many like minded people with many different skill sets. Everyone seems to want to make the company better and pitch in wherever they can, which is easy to thrive off of.

      Cons

      In any growing company there is a lot of work to be done, and you must be willing to pick up new roles and responsibilities in order to keep things running. This can often lead to new opportunities though.

      Pros

      Very good product to sell. Good company to work for.

      Cons

      No life - work balance. Typical pain for very fast growing company. Getting promotion internally could be difficult. Company more focused to bring someone from outside rather than internal promotion, hense we see more and more resignations.

      Work for DC office if you DO NOT like making money. YOU WILL BE POOR.

      Pros

      Great people. Cool product. Nice managers. Hardworking people. Free healthcare. Good location. Great benefits (which are counteracted with HORRIBLE pay). Great 2 week orientation in Seattle. Nice office space.

      Cons

      Pay insulting. Even if you calculate in the benefits including the stock options/healthcare you will still take a significant pay cut unless you are coming from a minimum wage job. Success is never felt. You will not make EVEN CLOSE to "on target earnings." Pay is WELL below industry standards and they will try to sell you on the added value of the benefits which when you calculate them out don't even break even with the lack of pay. Territories continue to shrink even though people not even getting close to quota. Constantly use the excuse of "new office" and "growing company" to cover up for illogical and unattainable quota. If you're motivated by money and success do NOT work here. Delusional upper upper management. You will be poor and burned out after 1 month.
