    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    When I was hired, the best reasons were potential growth opportunities and a well established team.

    Cons

    No opportunity with the Vista transaction and leadership is oblivious to the internal issues. Culture is non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I left because I didn't feel respected or valued. TIBCO unfortunately let go of quality employees that were critical to business function and then as a result even more quality employees had resigned. TIBCO has allowed Marketing to lay the blame solely on the Operational side but in reality the issues are stagnant in Process and poor Project Management. Open your eyes and address it. You let the talent go and the people left are walking blindly.

    I worked at TIBCO Software

    Pros

    Not a lot to be positive on...the pay was ok and reasonable benefits

    Cons

    Technology and products are old and outdated as are the management. Sales and marketing was failing and now with VC ownership this is not a fun place to work with little or zero career options

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find new roles in other companies - fast

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time

    Pros

    Lots of great non-exec employees, middle managers. Benefits are great. On site cafe has great food at a reasonable price.

    Cons

    Nepotism, favoritism, whatever you want to call it..is rampant. It's not about the quality of your work or skills, it's who you know to get ahead. Senior marketing execs are clueless. Constant focus shifting, half-baked campaigns, and people with little skill steering the ship, from the CMO on down. No bonus structure to speak of. Merit increases are a glorified popularity contest, or you get offered one when you quit. Career planning amounts to waiting for someone to leave, and maybe you'll get that job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm pointing the finger at the CEO. Either the mess isn't seen, or being ignored. Either way, the blame is on his feet. Do something before all the good people have left.

    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.

    Pros

    not sure there are any. TIBCO lost the ability to innovate years back and the stock started to talk. was acquired by a private firm who laid off a tom of people. focus is on getting as much cash as possible out without investing in people or products.

    Cons

    lack of leadership, poor compensation, low communication, constant threat of layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you are doing, take the money and run.
