    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time

    Pros

    Lots of room to grow if you work hard and position yourself correctly in the organization. Traditionally the field organization has solved very complex problems. There is a history of outcompeting larger companies such as IBM and Oracle through hard work and intense customer focus.

    Cons

    Increasing bureaucracy. Political atmosphere. Lack of mentorship or clear career path. For field organization work/life balance is nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on clients. TIBCO is fundamentally a software company. The focus should be on making software work for our clients. TIBCO is at its best when client driven.

    It was a nice experience

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (less than an 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.

    Pros

    small group
    like the technology
    good pay

    Cons

    I didn't pay attention to cons. so I can't mention any. As I said, find a group where you can play by your strength and TIBCO has many such groups. If you end up in the wrong place you can find many cons :-)

    Pros

    lots of opportunity, many engaged and intelligent people, solid products

    Cons

    sales disorganization, lack of integration and cooperation amongst business units, internal promotion and raises are small and difficult to get once in the door

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Level set your existing employees (who have been with TIBCO over a year) to market rates - there are many people at TIBCO who are grossly underpaid related to their positions within the market, and are thus a flight risk. The integration of acquisitions should also be handled better, around employee integration primarily.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and cafeteria on the main campus. Product line is good and has few real competitors. Compensation for sales team is good. Great annual company party.

    Cons

    Like most Silicon Valley companies, sales team comes first. Support groups are understaffed and stretched to the max. Doing as much with as few people works to a certain extent, but eventually people need a break. Pay is on par or a little below industry norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough support staff to supplement your sales.

    Pros

    Being an enterprise software company, TIBCO is reinventing itself through innovative product. It has its group of talent people, as well as people just waiting for retirement. Overall the company has its growth, but won't at the speed compare to a startup.

    Cons

    Not all processes are well defined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could get more seasoned executives. Most of them are promoted internally.

    Pros

    The technical knowledge and sharing of the knowledge among the field people is great. Just send an email with a question and you will get at least 10 responses by the end of the day. The products are leading edge that cause companies such as IBM to duplicate the message/products.

    Cons

    The Club Awards for non-quota carrying people seem to be arbirtary based on how management feels that day. Management seems to make decisions without communicating to employees why the decision was made.
