    Pros

    A fast pace company that rewards their employees for their contribution to the company. It is a large company that allows for many career opportunities but still small enough for the executive management to know you.

    The engineering staff is very dedicated to their work but still take time to discuss problem no matter how busy their schedule is.

    Bleeding edge technology.

    Multi cultural environment.

    Great cafeteria in the Palo Alto office.

    Cons

    The company has tremendous upside but needs to clearer present its long term vision to the employees.

    Pros

    I have been party of Tibco Software for past 5 years. Starting my career with Tibco gave me opportunity to work on the most advanced technology products (MDM, CEP, SOA, etc). The support of management for exploring new things has been tremendous. Tibco always provides the platform for young as well as experienced folks to focus more on innovation apart from the usual release work.

    Cons

    Till date I haven't felt any downside working with the great organization.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    My boss is awesome. He's super encouraging, and he really knows his stuff when it comes to our software. He lets me screw up, and gives me 'unvarnished feedback' in such a way that it feel constructive. Overall, the company has a ton of potential and, I feel, the right people leading things.

    Cons

    The product that I work on, Spotfire, is better at 'the hard stuff' than our competitors, but our competitors are 'prettier'. That doesn't sound like a huge problem until you realize that 'pretty' matters quite a bit in the data visualization space.

    Also, TIBCO has something like 400 products overall. Sometimes, it's hard to really know what resources are really available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Often times, it's very easy to prioritize what to focus on when you're a company like ours; where the history has been B2B selling. But with software like Spotfire, we need to remember that the people who we need to convince are real people too, and things like ease of use and prettiness will often trump advanced statistical analysis.
