    I have been working at TIBCO Software

    Pros

    I love working at TIBCO because I get to work with fun-loving, good people. It's also a healthy and casual work environment with flexible work hours and work location.

    Cons

    Because of the flexibility, there isn't much of a sense of urgency or clear immediate direction within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide employees a sense of "closeness" with the overall mission and direction of the company.

    It was a nice experience

    Former Employee - Software Engineer  in  Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work culture and really talented people work here.
    Its good to work in a really dynamic enviornment with really smart people here.

    Cons

    Pay is comparatively less here. I was expecting to have good raise in salary. But I ended up getting less. So salary is the one thing one should consider before making Tibco as a long term career choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the employees.
