Pros

The technical knowledge and sharing of the knowledge among the field people is great. Just send an email with a question and you will get at least 10 responses by the end of the day. The products are leading edge that cause companies such as IBM to duplicate the message/products.

Cons

The Club Awards for non-quota carrying people seem to be arbirtary based on how management feels that day. Management seems to make decisions without communicating to employees why the decision was made.

    Pros

    TIBCO is a serious competitor to the much larger super players Oracle, SAP, IBM and as such places special emphasis on product and service performance and quality. This dynamic also lends an air or urgency and shared passion for success.

    Cons

    TIBCO has a much higher degree of bureaucracy than is necessary for a mid sized company. The legal department is very ponderous and overly conservative (contracts revenue recognition) , there are a million systems for compensation, expenses, vacation etc, poorly supported by a provincial IT organization, Benefits choices are not great although at par but a reasonable team there. In all, these are a distant second to the pros above.

    Pros

    tibbr (TIBCO's corporate social networking software) has potential. However, whether or not they'll realize it's full potential is anyone's guess. Decent pay when compared with the gaming industry, and fair hours (while a contractor). Good group of people, if you're accepted into the clique.

    Cons

    Segregated work environment. Fairly dense Indian population with gated attitudes, and/or behavior. [This could be a personal observation, but I've felt that] Because I'm not Indian, I'm an outcast. Poor communication from upper management to production team. Serious-serious bottlenecks. Nothing is documented, so the management style is, "shoot from the hip." Rather than address management issues, and taking steps to resolve the issues, they take the easy way out, and lay off the people whom they lovingly refer to as, "the problem."

    Advice to Management

    You need to reassess your situation. I don't understand how you call yourselves "results driven," when you don't document any of your triumphs/failures. How can you tell people you're making progress when you have nothing to compare your "success" to? A serious restructuring needs to occur at the managerial level in order for survival.
