    Great company to work for, but not fast enough to adapt to new industry culture

    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.

    Aquires to many company with no full integration plan. Internal departments fight for revenue recognition and sales leads. Very difficult to know where you stand at any given time.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Base pay isn't great but bonuses or commissions can be excellent. Nice people and smart people to work with. Training programs have gotten better. Many good products. The infrastructure group has a solid business.

    Cons

    Very aggressive growth goals, without enough marketing support.
    Problems with sales management and competition within sales groups. The Spotfire group has been experiencing some chaos and losing market share in a crowded space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more customer focused and less of "the customer will do things our way."

    Some products definitely use cutting edge technology

    Cons

    Less compensation
    Management is not very interactive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction with the employees
    CEO usually only tweets about basketball, and not Tibco. It would be nice to hear his comments on what differentiates Tibco in this space
