Hey everyone,
I am about to join Tableau in July and found out they are being bought by Salesforce. Is there anything I need to consider and know about in this situation? I have already accepted my offer last week. Do I get to keep my shares or will things adjust before my start date. I am hoping this was just great luck of accepting the offer right before it was bought. Just want to know the situation since I have never joined a company in the process of being bought.

      Why would an early join date matter?

      I have been this kind of deal at my previous company and anything could happen like stock grants get reduced or price conversion. Right now Tableau employers are happy as it is good deal .

      Awesome, I already signed my offer but donโ€™t start until 2 months later, I wonder if I should change my starting date

      I start in July and my hiring manager said it should be fine. Again, anything can happen.

    Recruiter told me it shouldn't affect the role I applied for. Tableau will remain an independant company until the acquisition is fully completed. No changes to stock package. Will have more info in the afternoon. They are in meetings all day as others have said.

      You might hit a home run here depending on how long the acquisition takes. Often times once the merger is fully completed all of your outstanding rsus vest immediately

      Official news is that the vesting schedule does not change.

    As a general top level answer for most people here this should have little to no impact on you coming in. Your offers will not change other than the value of your initial stock grant going up nicely before you even start, congratulations on timing. All tableau stock will get transitioned to sales force stock and the price of the conversion is already baked in so no extra math needed to figure out the new value of your grant.
    Fort anything more detailed ask your recruiter and or hiring manager.

      Why would it go up? Is the offer a dollar amount or number of RSU?

      Tableau offers RSU not dollar amount

      Are tableau employees not worried about layoffs?

    I am also in the same boat. Got my h1b transfer as well. What to do now

      Same as the rest of us, ask your recruiter!

      Hope you have not told your current employer yet. If shit hits the fan forget about the offer and continue interviewing. You dont have to use all your h1 transfers and can just continue using your original h1 visa

      Let me know if you hear anything before me. I start July 1st, but this was such a surprise when I woke up.

    We are learning all about it now; likely won't have info for at least another few hours.

    Ask your recruiter about how that changes your RSU grants.

    I am going to join tableau next Monday and heard about the salesforce news, will it impact me any ways, thoughts?

    • Tableau maybenot
      No this should have little to no impact on you other than the increased stock price since you signed and the changed stock symbol by the time of your first vest. Ask your recruiter or hiring manager for more details. Also welcome to tableau.
