    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time

    Pros

    Everyone 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!

    Cons

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

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    This 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....

    Cons

    TIBCO 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 ManagementAdvice

    Value 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...

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Compensation 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 ManagementAdvice

    Open 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 !!!

    Company culture is great. Driven leadership to be the best. Technology is top notch and consistently wins in the marketplace.

    Pros

    Very innovative and customer focused culture. Career mobility across functions and geographies even if you haven't done the job before, but you need to show the initiative. Highly relevant technology with social, mobile, loyalty, predictive analytics, and integration platform. The place to be if you are driven and want to keep raising the bar.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a steady state job environment, this is not the place as the pace is high and you will feel like you are getting left behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring the smartest kids around the world.
