I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 5 years)
Most of the Pro's have gone away over the past couple of years. I hit the eject button because there weren't many pros left to speak of. I guess I could say that once upon a time it was a great place to work, but that place doesn't exist anymore.
Now that Vista has taken over, the cons are too numerous to list, but I will give it a try. Spotfire has failed to meet it's numbers for the past two years. All of Spotfire's problems can be boiled down to two basic issues; namely, Marketing and Management. Spotfire has one of the worst marketing organizations I have ever seen. These people simple don't know how to do their job. Totally ineffective, in the extreme. However, the number one issue at Spotfire is the management. Spotfire is a product that could have been the top dog, world class product on the market. They could have been the product that took the market by storm. However, Spotfire management has taken what could have been the Rock Star product of the world and totally destroyed it. Spotfire has no chance at all to become a relevant product in the market at this point. Just take a look at what happened to "Tibco" in the Gartner Magic Quadrant between 2014 and 2015. So, you have decided to jump on the "Good Ship Spotfire" anyway, well you might not get to stay there very long. Now that Vista has taken over they have just rolled out their "Super secret aptitude exam". If you don't score well on it, you will be managed out of a job over the next few quarters. Spotfire is the story of a company and a product that once had the potential to become something great, but ended up falling short in almost every possible way.
Advice to Management
I wish I could say something that would help at this point, but sadly I think it is beyond the point of no return. I don't think you can fix it at this point. If Spotfire 7 could cure cancer, it would still not be enough to undo all of the damage you have done to this company.
