    Great place to learn new technology/industries. Bad place for advancement.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe technical knowledge and sharing of the knowledge among the field people is great. Just send an email with a question and you will get at least 10 responses by the end of the day. The products are leading edge that cause companies such as IBM to duplicate the message/products.

    ConsThe Club Awards for non-quota carrying people seem to be arbirtary based on how management feels that day. Management seems to make decisions without communicating to employees why the decision was made.

    TIBCO Tries harder

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsTIBCO is a serious competitor to the much larger super players Oracle, SAP, IBM and as such places special emphasis on product and service performance and quality. This dynamic also lends an air or urgency and shared passion for success.

    ConsTIBCO has a much higher degree of bureaucracy than is necessary for a mid sized company. The legal department is very ponderous and overly conservative (contracts revenue recognition) , there are a million systems for compensation, expenses, vacation etc, poorly supported by a provincial IT organization, Benefits choices are not great although at par but a reasonable team there. In all, these are a distant second to the pros above.

    Nice place to work, shifting directions however

    Member of Technical Staff QA (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsThe team atmosphere was great. Lots of collaboration between members of the dev team, QA and tech pubs. I loved the fact that I was able to pick projects or even pet projects to work on and management encouraged it.

    ConsManagement made a sudden shift in plans and dropped our latest work from the next product release. A month later they laid a bunch of us off due to the fact they don't have a plan.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLocal management was outstanding, they were fair and forthcoming with information. The guys in Palo Alto are ghosts, never saw them. Did have a VP show up for one afternoon and he just reiterated what he had said in the last group video conference, not to impressed.

    As a small company, Good place to Work gain lot of experience.

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsCompany has made presence in Integration space and quickly growing into CEP and BPM market which are hot cakes. Also it cares about employees getting trained and learn more.

    ConsNot lot of room to move around. If you are in Professional service. Hence after couple of years you will feel your role redundant.
