    TIBCO has been a very exciting company to work for!!!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Palo Alto, CA

    ProsThe company allows you to move around where your talents will be best utilized. Your opinions are heard from management all the way to the execs and their assistance. It's a large company but internally feels like a tight family and operates like that of a well oiled machine.

    ConsIt's not an easy company to leave. The relationships built here are ones that last a lifetime.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo always remember that your employees are the foundation of the company. When we are happy and treated like family we will do anything to make sure that this company succeeds. And we treat it like it is our own! With a strong team we can never fail.
