    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time

    Pros

    Tibco has some good folks left

    Cons

    Too much politics and does not get work done due to internal politics between departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much politics and does not get work done due to internal politics between departments. Before you fight externally fight the internal politics and treat as one company. Management is clueless on execution.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Big clients including many fortune 500 corporations, and great in-depth set of products. The job location is great, awful on-site cafe, flexibility to work from home, against traffic on my commute.

    Cons

    Not fast enough to change the culture from enterprise sales based model, to cloud self-service based model that is required in today's date and time. Salary levels have dropped in comparison to industry, minimal bonus and pay raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt cloud based culture fast enough. Review salary levels specially at below executive level jobs.

    Pros

    Autonomy, smart people, work-life balance.

    Cons

    In team selling opportunities, they leave it to the reps to determine the comp split. Double comp would encourage for team selling and higher ACV and TCVs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid of associates and managers that are not "yes' people. Listen and consider those that challenge the status quo.

    Double compensate on deals where multiple reps are team selling. Many opportunities are lost because this provision is not in place.
