Wouldn't recommend a friend work there

Middle Management (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsA twenty word minimum is difficult to meet in this area. It's like having to wirte a minimum number of word essay for Jr. High School where you just babble to increase the word count. TIBCO has nice working facilities and a lot of extremely competent and passionate over worked employees.TIBCO subsidizes the costs of the cafeteria and "feeds" their employees as rewards. Donuts and bagels on Friday, holiday lunches, holiday parties, summer picnics.

ConsOver the years it has gotten worse with management at the top making the calls that should be handled by lower level more directly involved management . Almost dictatorship-like from the top. Senior Management is "taken care of" which is clear from company reports and company "filings". The hours required to get the job done are ridiculous due to the lack of needed headcount. There is little accountability for employees making the competent employees have to work harder. Yet workers are taken for granted and perceived to be a dime a dozen even though the "lip service" from the top is TIBCO employees are the best and most talented employees. HR is the worst...there is no support from them and their lack of realistic
"benchmarking" drives the low wages. Merit increases are never there yet there are record quarters. Reviews are a formality and here is little to no follow up regarding them. Acquisitions are handled poorly and it is clear by the feelings of the employees acquired. Morale is very bad throughout many organizations.

Advice to Senior ManagementUse the old school "MBWA" - Management By Walking Around.
LISTEN to your employees, talk to them like they are humans not machines. REALLY read their quarterly meeting questions and don't hand pick the ones you want to "dance around". On second thought never mind, because the quarterly meeting are a thing of the past. IF Senior Management can't take the time to present at the meetings in person, don't expect employees to go to the meetings.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
