    I have been working at Tenable full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing location, The office atmosphere is very positive and full of energy.
    Competitive salary and great benefits.
    If you are creative , intelligent and cool person who is looking to work in a lovely environment that admires your work and encourages you to step up your career? Then please join us, Tenable is the right place and we love talented people ;)
    Senior management are very supportive, They will be around you if you need anything.
    On-boarding and new hire training in US is great plus.
    If you like having fun, join social events and team activities then you will get tired of them soon at Tenable.

    Cons

    I love Tenable, hence find it bit difficult to fill in this part.
    Anyway, although we have a lovely kitchen with free snacks,
    but the coffee machine is bit odd, it takes 15 mins to warm up and sometimes the touchscreen menu language switches to German by itself so we end up picking the wrong drink, also important to mention the sugar cubes runs out very quickly so reserving one or two in your emergency pocket is not a bad idea .

    Advice to Management

    More focus to EMEA emerging market, we are proudly building very powerful brand and customer base, so it is time to invest a bit more to sustain it.

    I worked at Tenable full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Office close to the city, great office space, salary, perks.

    Cons

    Very toxic culture. It became very Darwinian at the end of my tenure. There is an underlying fear to management to say a happy, happy, happy. Silos of people with favoritism creating an informally hierarchical org. Fall on the wrong side, you can forget about advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck

    I worked at Tenable (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Location, good colleagues, snacks,

    Cons

    Following up on bad review posted 16 Jan 2019, we were actually brought into a meeting to discuss this and dissuade us from posting bad reviews on Glassdoor!

    He actually went through each point outlined in the review and explained why each point was wrong!

    The manager ‘prides himself on being open to feedback, and will listen and take it onboard’.

    Does he not see the contradiction....

    To sum it up, basically he said if you weren’t happy to leave! I would hope if Tenable management see this, they do not share this view, not a pleasant atmosphere for a productive environment.

    I would agree with everything outlined in the review, time to wake up and listen to your employees.

    I have been working at Tenable full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location is good and the office is unique
    Competitive benefits package

    Cons

    Senior management are distant and uninspiring
    There is a real lack of motivation and leadership
    Negative atmosphere in the office which is a shame as it was a vibrant progressive place to work before they changed the management structure around
    No recognition for staff that put in a very strong effort
    Focus is on dashboards which only portray negativity

    New management brought in have changed the cool hip modern progressive work place from a free thinking open opportunity, achieve anything together feel; to a very backwards in time, old school, grey, same as every other dead end job feel. I wish management would take more ideas on board. Tech companies in Dublin pride themselves on being progressive. Tenable is going backwards.

    This is not a bitter employee but a genuinely concerned employee. The fact some managers are so unaware of how depressed their team is, is frightening. I genuinely used to really enjoy working here.

    Advice to Management

    Be human.
    Focus on what staff need to do their jobs and not on dashboards of concern.
    Encourage teamwork and break the clear divide that exists between management and staff.
    There is a difference between leaders and just being a boss. I would not recommend this slowly toxic work atmosphere anymore, where once i was promoting it as a "moving with the times" office.

    Pros

    Really cool new office right on the quays, short walk to public transport and shops and cafes etc. Nice kitchen with free snacks etc. Supported and included by the local team aswell as the US HQ team. Very flexible and supportive managers and you are trusted to work very much autonomously.

    Cons

    There can be some teething problems when a company is growing quite rapidly but this is true of any company.

    Pros

    • Startup culture even for well established company
    • Relaxed atmosphere
    • Competitive Salary
    • Medical and Dental Benefits
    • Performance is rewarded
    • Training provided in US HQ

    • Great team Spirit
    • Clear opportunity based targets
    • Huge growth and opportunities
    • Games/TV room for breaks

    Cons

    Where do I start.
    • I think I have repetitive stress syndrome from raising and lowering my Electric Standing Desk. No-one ever offered to assist me.
    • People got too good at PlayStation, I spend most of my lunch hours being destroyed at FIFA, I think some of them purchased the game to play at home for this sole purpose. Scum. My confidence is at an all-time low.
    • This wonderful new office has made me quite cocky when I tell people where I work. It's not a version of me that I like.
    • The convenient central location of the office comes at a cost. I look like a daddy long legs on a bicycle during my commute.
    • There are at least 4 coffee shops within a 100 metre radius of the office. I hate coffee.
    • Everyone is really helpful, friendly and welcoming here. SO creepy.
    • There are showers in the bathrooms. Bring your own towel though cos I had to drip dry twice, wasted 3 minutes there.
    • Regular and healthy snacks provided???? So it's guilt or obesity? I don't appreciate mind games.
    • Each employee's birthday is celebrated with gifts and food. I want to feel this special every day. This is not the case.
    • Frequent team building activities. My teammates in the escape rooms challenge were less than helpful.
    • A guy from Tech support told me to shut up once (clearly doesn't appreciate the BANTS). I think he's leaving now
    • Someone tried to learn an instrument in the office once. They've gone now.
    • Someone asked for a nap room once. They've gone now.

    The products are amazing and cyber security is an interesting topic, at least for technical reasons, if not for opportunities if you're greedy :)

    Atmosphere is a bit boring, not much diversity.
