    Awesome, best experience in my career. Hear TIBCO has changed a lot since I left though.

    Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Palo Alto, CA

    ProsGreat management, lot of trust and independence and a true meritocracy. Lot of opportunity to grow and learn and explore roles without hard titles.

    ConsTop management did change a lot and lot of people left the company as a result. Also seems like the company is not too keen to go big, so much as there is opportunity to step to the next level, doesn't seem like the company is going places. Not much work-life balance, but work is super enjoyable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire a new CEO.

    I work as Sr Manager in Quality department...

    Senior Manager QA (Current Employee) Palo Alto, CA

    ProsThis place used to be very good for working and for trying new ideas since there was a time when TIBCO was doing new things and was investing in right direction....

    ConsTIBCO has zero accountability at higher management...you can fail number of times and there is no impact to your package or your promotions...TIBCO has very regular salary, it's hard to expect other benefits such as RSU, Stock since you get very less of stocks, RSU and stock price is falling...culture is good but it's not thriving place to build your career ....

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue people and pay them right...Get right people for right job...don't look for leaders within the company always...please make higher management responsible for their outcome...just meeting quarters should not be goal...goal should be to show a growth potential...very ordinary salary and no great potential is not going to take this company long way...

    Below market compensation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVariety of Technology to work on.
    Cafe and company campus is quite nice.

    ConsCompensation is way below the market rate and Management is not doing much to retain the quality resources due to these below market compensation.

    Upper Management is not keen on addressing/fixing problems which employees are spotting left, right and central.

    Technology stack is too wide (variety), but management is not able to generate constant revenue stream out of it, and hence the situation where unpleasant cost-cutting decisions are been pushed to employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes, act on the feedbacks. It is easy to spot, and fixable (only if you have that mindset)

    Do remember that - Engineering is the core for a technology company, and not the sales or support. And so compensate them accordingly. No brainer !!!

    Excellent People, Great Products

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEveryone is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. You have the opportunity here to work on very big and interesting solutions. The company is big enough to compete with anybody, but small enough that it is possible to move quicker and be more responsive to customers. Also, best corporate cafeteria ever!

    ConsDevelopment teams are geographically dispersed, often making it difficult to coordinate across time zones. Engineering is under-staffed relative to the product goals set forth.

    Senior Architect (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    Pros- people.. some of the smartest people you will ever work with...really helping and care for each other. I work in consulting division within central and it is one big happy family.

    - senior management is really great..they know what they are doing.. every one is really focussed and passionate about taking TIBCO to the next level
    - product...TIBCO products are far superior than everyone else in every market where TIBCO competes....lots of learning opportunity.

    Cons- in my current job, the thing i hate the most is travel...requires travel every week monday thru thursday...
