I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

A 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.

Cons

Over 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 ManagementAdvice

Use 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.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good products
    Solid customer base
    High quality field level teams
    High standard of engineering experise

    Cons

    Poor sales engineering commissions
    Quality issues with sales executives
    Quality issues with executive sales management
    Underfunded marketing efforts
    The company is a billion dollar software company that is still run with a start-up mentality i.e. micromanagement of issues and sales cycles and promotions based on "old boy network" status

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop finding excuses to stiff the sales teams out of commissions
    Hire better regional and general managers, delegate proper responsibility to them and stop micro-managing individual sales cycles
    Pay better commissions to sales engineers - they do more than 60% of the sales cycles but make less than 25% of overall license commission
    Listen to and act on advice from the field - many mistakes are being made from top-down management decisions made at Head Office who have a distant or distorted view of the realities of the field
    Stop moving underperforming managers and senior staff into "rescue" roles. If they don't deliver on their responsibilities - get rid of them, not grant them corporate career welfare
