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

    Pros

    * Great products, used by the customers to do some truly amazing things * Great people, making it a great place to work * Flexibility, allowing you to do what is needed to get your work done. If you are someone who is self-motivated the environment is one that you can get a lot done in and be recognized for your contribution * Overall compensation package, benefits, etc. very good

    Cons

    * Like any mid-size to large company some decisions are made slow * The recent change in control resulted in cutbacks in some areas to provide focus and investment in other areas, resulting in loss of some talented people

    Advice to Management

    * Continue to define the vision and focus around the Fast Data platform, it is resonating well with customers and will help drive our growth.

    Pros

    Very smart technologist. Working on the hardest problems in Industry stalwart companies. When implemented in a large company TIBCO can truly transform their business and not many software companies can compare. I've had more CxO discussions in this company than my entire career which is an indication of the mission critical nature of our solutions.

    Cons

    Marketing leads are non existent. Product is not in hyper growth mode, so it takes incredible focus and activity to build a territory. Qtly pressure is not unlike any other s/w company but it is intense.

    Advice to Management

    Stay ahead of the market by listening to your clients more and not creating products as pet projects.

    Pros

    Once upon a time Spotfire was a great product. Once upon a time there were great people to work with.

    Cons

    Spotfire has nearly become irrelevant in the market place. More companies and people have never even heard of Spotfire. The management of this company is seriously the worst I have ever seen. It's almost like they have tried to kill this company on purpose. The decisions they have made are so bad that I have to ask myself how anyone could lead a company down a dead end path, as they have done, with out knowing what you are doing was just stupid?

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Vista Equity Partners (The new owners of Tibco Spotfire). You need to simply fire the senior management at Spotfire. If you look at what Spotfire once was and then look at it now, you should be able to see that the people who are still in place and running Spotfire are just really really bad at doing their job. They have killed an entire company! Why do they still have jobs? Why? Why? Why? Fire the senior Spotfire management!!!

    Pros

    Smart people Good products Good benefits Fair salary

    Cons

    Vista bought Tibco ... what more can you say? Just look at the reviews of other companies that Vista aquired. It will go down the drain. They will sequeeze them out. The only place at this company is for people who own them. Huge layoffs have already begun, ... further cost cutting wlll follow! VIsta has a playbook that they execute. Just read the other reviews.

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - professional environment - nice co-workers (for the most part) - products that really work - employees are passionate about the products and company - problems solving culture - ie, know that they need to add value for their clients - many opportunities for employees to get together and talk shop and get trained!

    Cons

    - comp: they are cheap for the most part - often short staffed due too many "hiring freezes" - too quarterly driven (can you really blame them or any public company?) - like all companies this size sometimes the left had doesn't know what the right is up to

    Advice to Management

    - better communication to the front line employees

    here is a place where people are encouraged to look for challenges and you always have chance to utilize your creativity to resolve great problems

    you have to be a self driver who clearly know what you want to create with less room for follower

    Pros

    TIBCO provides the leading business integration technology and solution to many types of industrial companies.

    Cons

    TIBCO is very conservative in spending on their budget.

    Advice to Management

    Improve advertising the TIBCO brand. There are many people who are using TIBCO in their daily life activities, but never heard about TIBCO as a company.

    Pros

    At TIBCO you can be whatever you dream of being - I have had five jobs in five years and each one has been a unique experience. The senior management exposure is unique for a company this size.

    Cons

    Enterprise market is not for the faint of heart. TIBCO plays against much bigger companies and that is never easy.

    Advice to Management

    Transition to new markets quickly
