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

    Pros

    Knowledgeable and extremely smart people. Great culture, people are always willing to help, the benefits are a great plus.

    Cons

    TIBCO is not for someone who would want to coast to get by, you are encouraged and expected to go above and beyond. Also internal processes can slow you down, however that is extremely minor in my opinion and any large organization has these issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep chugging along and remain focused.

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

    Pros

    It is a team environment where everyone wants to see our customers be successful. The culture is very entrepreneurial. There are many employees that have been here 10+ years.

    Cons

    Due to the entrepreneurial nature sometimes there is a lack of processes/formalities that other large companies might have but I think that is what make TIBCO unique and a fun place to work.

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

    Pros

    TIBCO offers the opportunity to learn new technology and leverage that into helping our clients better use our products. There are challenges every day, it is never boring and always exciting. The benefits are second to none. Time off, and health benefits are both great and cost effective with the available choices.

    Cons

    There is a lot to learn, and in a short time to better perform the various duties assigned to us. Training can be hard to come by, it is best learned on the fly as the SW changes rapidly. Annual reviews and raises could be better to compensate for the hard work everyone puts in to keep our clients happy with our products.

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

    Pros

    TIBCO has great people and great products. There is definally a very positive message coming from the top of the organization and they know where they want to take this company. A very good place for those who are self directed as the work force is pretty scattered geographically.

    Cons

    The work nevers tops, work life balance is hard to maintain. All the focus is on sales so the organizations supporting sales are lean and the workload is high. It can be high stress to keep up with the volume of work. There is not a lot of opportunity for career advancement or salary increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to motivate and compensate employees that are not in sales. There are very few of us and we have to work very hard to support your sales force. Sales force grows, but support organizations do not.

    Work with the best, be paid the best, and know you will never work for a better company.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work as hard as you ever have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vivek will not lose because he refuses to bring in talent less than "great". Don't ever lose that mindset. It takes every single person contributing to win business consistently.

    Pros

    TIBCO maintains a results-driven culture. In my experience, meaningful contribution and hard work is certainly rewarded with career advancement opportunities. Additionally, TIBCO is full of impressive and experienced employees who have helped me develop in my career.

    Cons

    TIBCO is does not offer the onsite perks other tech companies offer. The on campus experienced could be improved with an updating of the offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
