I have been working at TIBCO Software

Pros

Individual contributors are very nice for the most part but they form silos.

Cons

Extremely cost conscious and traditional management (9-5, no remote working, etc), Some serious cross-department politics, sr Management seems to have ego as motivation rather than the advancement of the company when making decisions but this is the case in most companies...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure departments cooperate with each other. Seems there are a lot of silos. Be a little more proactive creative to motivate employees other than sales.

    Pros

    TIBCO is a serious competitor to the much larger super players Oracle, SAP, IBM and as such places special emphasis on product and service performance and quality. This dynamic also lends an air or urgency and shared passion for success.

    Cons

    TIBCO has a much higher degree of bureaucracy than is necessary for a mid sized company. The legal department is very ponderous and overly conservative (contracts revenue recognition) , there are a million systems for compensation, expenses, vacation etc, poorly supported by a provincial IT organization, Benefits choices are not great although at par but a reasonable team there. In all, these are a distant second to the pros above.

    Pros

    The team atmosphere was great. Lots of collaboration between members of the dev team, QA and tech pubs. I loved the fact that I was able to pick projects or even pet projects to work on and management encouraged it.

    Cons

    Management made a sudden shift in plans and dropped our latest work from the next product release. A month later they laid a bunch of us off due to the fact they don't have a plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local management was outstanding, they were fair and forthcoming with information. The guys in Palo Alto are ghosts, never saw them. Did have a VP show up for one afternoon and he just reiterated what he had said in the last group video conference, not to impressed.
