    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Sharing culture, competitive, team oriented, benefits.

    It's a large, publicly traded company that feels like a smaller almost start up in nature given people's willingness the share and assist helping each other and customers.

    Brilliant developers create amazing software that makes a difference in the world. And everyone is either making software or selling software to customers in need.

    Internal social network, tibbr, is great tool to find resources, share ideas, and get work done.

    Cons

    Big company logistics sometimes slows things down.

    Pros

    You have the chance to work with some of the smartest people around. The technology is unique and it provides extreme value to companies and other organizations.

    Cons

    The brand recognition of TIBCO is not very strong. There is also a certain level of noticeable bureaucracy, as with any mid- to large-size corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please place a larger focus on marketing -- branding specifically. For example, it would be great to see some TIBCO television commercials, billboards, and signs in airports to raise brand awareness.

    Pros

    very nice place to work, have developed long lasting friends, it's more about people here.

    Cons

    Timelines are short. Put in lot of effort. Short of resources when needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have regular business sessions with employees. Show them where the $$ are coming from so that they put some effort. Need more business oriented roadmaps for products. An average employee should know where his salary is coming from, s/he has to be more aware of contributing towards the revenue...Management should Make them aware... show them the money so that they contribute :-).

    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?
