    Pros

    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

    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."

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great management, lot of trust and independence and a true meritocracy. Lot of opportunity to grow and learn and explore roles without hard titles.

    Cons

    Top management did change a lot and lot of people left the company as a result. Also seems like the company is not too keen to go big, so much as there is opportunity to step to the next level, doesn't seem like the company is going places. Not much work-life balance, but work is super enjoyable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a new CEO.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager QA in Palo Alto, CA

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (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

    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.
