    I have been working at Tiburon, Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Really None unless working for cluless managers is good for you.

    Cons

    Management has no SW development or support experience, if these managers go out in the field to look for a job they wont even get a interview. They have no idea as to what they are doing besides keeping the upper mgmt happy. Ever changing enviroment where no one gives a crap about you as an individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire people who have worked in SW development or have some idea of what the technology is, rather than people who come from police background. This is a SW develpoment company not a police station.

    I worked at Tiburon, Inc.

    Pros

    Top notch people completely dedicated to an important and meaningful public good
    Best product and services capability in the space - no question for clients and reputation
    Fascinating, challenging and meaningful work - pride in achievement
    Great opportunity to be the market leader, and valuable investments for the future have been done successfully

    Cons

    Reputation has suffered as important client service aspects not addressed with complete strategy and investment
    Can do a lot more with focus on the right business aspects. People and product are absolutely no-fail and the best possible choice for clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the good things, address what needs fixing, and build a strong customer satisfaction and reference business. Still the best people, product, and value for any client's investment and safety - hands down.

    Took too long for ownership to find the right match of management . some good people didn't wait

    I worked at Tiburon, Inc.

    Pros

    Employees at the working level are hard working, dedicated and professional. The products have great potential to lead the industry.

    Cons

    Disconnect at the executive level. Employee base has no respect for executive management. Employees are constantly put in a reactive mode due to lack of planning and management support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on product quality and customer satisfaction. Follow through with the promises you make to your clients. Listen to your employees, the people that actually do the work!

    I have been working at Tiburon, Inc.

    Pros

    Tiburon does very important software - that for the emergency services.

    Cons

    It's recent set of VPs have do not brought either public safety experience or software product experience to the table. They do not know how to deal with noisey customers, organize the products, run projects to completion. There is also a cultural rift within the company of old versus new crew.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit

    Claims to care about customers are false

    I have been working at Tiburon, Inc.

    Pros

    Most of the employees were smart and industry professionals. Those from the previous company which was purchased and renamed Tiburon carry a chip on their shoulders as the "Originals" which creates a wedge between anyone new coming in.

    Cons

    Their main goal is to get the company ready for sale and turn a profit. There are some smart people at the top, but not interested in growing the business or helping the customers, just turning a buck which is fine, but be honest about it. Employees are ignored, given unreasonable work schedules and scapegoats in many situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees.

    Bunyard Was TOO Considerate - New Clowns Are Just Funny

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Fremont, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fremont, CA

    I worked at Tiburon, Inc.

    Pros

    Stable products, generally good folks at the employee level. Middle management is where the ineptitude starts. New executive management has no business at a public safety software company - proof is in the pudding: what business have they landed that wasn't already in the pipe?

    Cons

    Bad communication, ongoing babying of under-performing resources. Under Bunyard, far too much credit given to failures. New management is simply applying everything they learned in MBA courses in an abstract way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company - move on.

    Note that Glassdoor says Bunyard is CEO. He is not and has not been for years. Present CEO is Jeff Stone. Bunyard made attemp[ts to be effective. Stone doesn't have any idea what is going on.
