    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Big clients including many fortune 500 corporations, and great in-depth set of products. The job location is great, awful on-site cafe, flexibility to work from home, against traffic on my commute.

    Cons

    Not fast enough to change the culture from enterprise sales based model, to cloud self-service based model that is required in today's date and time. Salary levels have dropped in comparison to industry, minimal bonus and pay raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt cloud based culture fast enough. Review salary levels specially at below executive level jobs.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Autonomy, smart people, work-life balance.

    Cons

    In team selling opportunities, they leave it to the reps to determine the comp split. Double comp would encourage for team selling and higher ACV and TCVs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid of associates and managers that are not "yes' people. Listen and consider those that challenge the status quo.

    Double compensate on deals where multiple reps are team selling. Many opportunities are lost because this provision is not in place.

    Pros

    Great people and good benefits.

    Cons

    Aquires to many company with no full integration plan. Internal departments fight for revenue recognition and sales leads. Very difficult to know where you stand at any given time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a CEO focused on the business not just a figure head.

    Pros

    Some products definitely use cutting edge technology

    Cons

    Less compensation
    Management is not very interactive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction with the employees
    CEO usually only tweets about basketball, and not Tibco. It would be nice to hear his comments on what differentiates Tibco in this space
