    I worked at TIBCO Software

    Pros

    Tibco software is a good place to work who want to do some creative, challenging and different type of work.
    Tibco software provides you enough opportunities to grow by help of trainings and workshops.

    Cons

    Salary is a bit low side in Product group.
    Onsite is also less and short term for the product group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tibco management should balance the 2 groups Product and services in terms of employees benefits and growth.

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Best culture.
    Flexible timings. You just don't have to go to office most of the times.
    High configuration laptop ( like Mac book pro or Windows), Iphone or Samsung galaxy grand 2 with International SIM card, Data card dongle, Corporate Credit Card.
    Office in Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad.
    Awesome pay and employee benefits.

    Cons

    Please don't join TIBBR or TIBCO Engage or TIBCO Loyality labs. They just fired about about 100-400 employees around the globe from these departments.
    Very bad and non helpful colleagues.
    Too much flexibility in Bangalore office and employees come drunk and work during lunch time.
    No HR in Bangalore office to monitor the conduct of employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the employees to get too much of freedom and flexibility.

    I worked at TIBCO Software

    Pros

    Great people to work with; interesting/cutting edge project and technology; remarkably free of the normal organizational politics

    Cons

    In our division, having IT issues dictated by the parent organization was less than ideal. Much of the test and lab environment is too diverse without adequate documentation or organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    good luck paying off the loans incurred in the takeover. Try to make production schedules be more reflective of reality.
