    Good opportunities for growth. Good pay and benefits. Smart people. Still a pretty big company.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid company with vibrant personnel and technology. Smart people with global presence. Always looking to innovate and expand. Excellent compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    This is a pretty big company so share price and revenue are king. Make no mistake that these drive everything down to your day-to-day activities. Constant pressure to make everything bigger. Wait, isn't that the right way to do things?! Not when sales are rushed and customer solutions are not fully baked. And personnel can be arbitrarily let go (even if they are doing good, profitable work) just to keep keep the numbers looking good to Wall Street.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the intensity to innovate and keep the integrity you lead with. But if the expansion levels out and we start to look more like a value company than a growth company, then let the P/E ratio be what it's going to be and do your best to preserve the organization (the people) who got things to where they are. $300M in revenue per quarter with $40M of that in PROFIT ain't a bad day at the office, so why be glum that the Street isn't happy?

    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.
