Tableau has a lot of passionate people with bit of an independent/contrarian steak. The knee-jerk reaction for many will be "oh no, gobbled up by a big company, it's all over and we were so much better off before and it's going to get all big-company bureaucratic and whatever whatever."
I think once those initial emotions wear off, anyone who enjoyed working at Tableau pre-Salesforce will get back to work trying to improve our product, make our customers better, support our communities, etc. And they'll also realize that they mean it when they say that Tableau will operate independently.
If you decide to leave because the health plan changed (setting aside those who have really serious health care expenses and very low wages), you probably don't really like working for Tableau.
Anyways, TC... lots of people became millionaires on Monday. Not the same as an IPO, but pretty big for a lot of people, especially those who have been around for awhile and held on to their stock and recent Dev hires.
How many Tableau people haven't even looked at their equity account this week? I kinda just got back to work, haven't looked yet... maybe because the deal isn't closed yet.
Not from what I’ve seen. Worse medical, higher deductibles, higher monthly costs. Way worse PTO for lower level employees and supposedly unlimited for higher. (“Unlimited” really means “less than average” by all studies). 401k is a bit better.
People who have been at Tableau for over 7 years in the unlucky non-unlimited groups get 8 weeks of PTO compared to SFDC 5 weeks. That’s about a 3% salary reduction right there.
