    Pros

    I've worked at TIBCO through a number of transitions, and I feel like we're at our best state right now. For the first time in over 5 years, I feel completely confident with our CEO, our head of engineering, our head of sales, and our CMO. While I've seen many executives who are either out of touch with employees, or who don't do much work, our current group probably puts in more hours of work, than a majority of the employees. I know they all care about the company, they know the products, know what we have to do to succeed, and they truly care about the employees. I don't know too many CEOs who will stop and talk with employees in the hallway, or even eat in the same cafe. I feel like the right people are finally in place to take advantage of our place in the market, and take advantage of becoming a private company. On a completely separate note, I feel TIBCO has better benefits than any other company I've worked at, matches 401k, has a transparent bonus and focal plan in place, and has always provided great promotion opportunities - for those who earn it, or seize those opportunities.

    Cons

    I feel some employees have developed a very negative attitude over the last couple years, and no matter how positive things get, still see only the bad side. I agree that in the past there has been poor direction from the top, but pieces are in place now, to fix those issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving clear information to employees. Employees appreciate leaders who have a plan, give direction to implement that plan, and acknowledge the employees to work hard to see the plan through.

    Pros

    The technologies, and the great minds that designed them, are still around after the acquisition. The acquisition and changes in engineering management have brought a welcome focus. One of TIBCO's known strength, its field forces, is motivated by the next big things the company is working on right now. And a more recent addition to the TIBCO mix is Marketing. The marketing team has been asked by Vista and the top executives to build a leading marketing organization. This is currently at play and quite interesting to be involved in. Data-driven decisions, collaboration and processes, constant testing and benchmarking are becoming the rule at TIBCO Marketing.

    Cons

    The company culture has always been about hard work, and the company has always been rewarding. The transformation at play, and the size of the opportunity, requires everyone to be 100% committed. Some will love it, some will not.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on engaging with customers. Keep on communicating with employees. Keep on investing in Marketing. Keep on adding structure and processes to realize the company and its assets (people and technology) company.

    Pros

    Company is transforming - it's like being at Apple when Steve Jobs came back. Exiting to see upfront how this transformation is happening. Deep focus on strong, industry leading products that are a driving force in the re-architecture of today's businesses (internet of things, digital enterprise, big data, streaming data). Vista transition has actually been helpful. It's allowed the company to focus on what is most important. Leadership has a clear vision and is not distracted. Stronger alignment between major organization pillars of Sales, Product and Marketing - and seeing people work together as a team. Have seen a significant change in last 3-months of co-workers excited for what TIBCO is going to become. Those that are here want to be here and are committed, which wasn't the case when I started. The company is being redefined from the inside out and things that were status quo are being challenged to make this company awesome. Best part is you know that everyone you're working with wants to do the same thing. The new CEO is very rational and reasonable - understand the business inside and out - as you would expect being the former COO. But, its great to have someone so in-tune with the business, know where it needs to go and have the calmness to clearly articulate that direction to others. I've seen too many other CEOs who didn't know where they were driving the ship and then got mad when they got lost. So refreshing not to be in that situation here! Company has one of the best benefits package I've seen in a long time! And of course the best cafeteria ever!

    Cons

    There are some processes here that are cumbersome and lengthy. You might gain weight because the cafeteria is a foodie's dream!

    Advice to Management

    Don't need to build everything from scratch. Keep investing in development in new products that help businesses change the world.

    Pros

    Dynamic, cutting edge technology and a good group of people who work very hard and trying to make a difference in the world.

    Cons

    A lot of uncertainty right now, but the company is going to emerge as a much stronger, focused organization in 6 months time.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what the customer wants and what the company does well. Narrow product stack and regain profit margins.
