    Great place to work, but like all companies, it has its share of issues

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    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 Senior Management- better communication to the front line employees

    Vice President Marketing (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsAt 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.

    Happy in my new home

    Senior Solution Consultant (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsMy boss is awesome. He's super encouraging, and he really knows his stuff when it comes to our software. He lets me screw up, and gives me 'unvarnished feedback' in such a way that it feel constructive. Overall, the company has a ton of potential and, I feel, the right people leading things.

    ConsThe product that I work on, Spotfire, is better at 'the hard stuff' than our competitors, but our competitors are 'prettier'. That doesn't sound like a huge problem until you realize that 'pretty' matters quite a bit in the data visualization space.

    Also, TIBCO has something like 400 products overall. Sometimes, it's hard to really know what resources are really available.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOften times, it's very easy to prioritize what to focus on when you're a company like ours; where the history has been B2B selling. But with software like Spotfire, we need to remember that the people who we need to convince are real people too, and things like ease of use and prettiness will often trump advanced statistical analysis.
