    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Products are intuitive enough to learn. They generally work but every software has its defects and advantages & disadvantages. I found good camaraderie within the company. Engineering department is generally willing to help the service team without sitting in their ivory tower. If you ask for technical help, people will generally help.

    Cons

    Because the company was purchased by a private equity group, the mandate is for continual growth and to be profitable. It puts much pressure to management to improve sales. But many companies have already purchased from TIBCO throughout the years. It is hard to sustain the rate of growth unless some new products are indeed game changers. If certain thing is unprofitable for the company, it will be eliminated. This is the reality of the business world. Vivek was gone. He would have staked it out even with his own money if he believes in the overall vision and goals of the company. He was a leader and fighter but he was tired. So good engineers left because the founder bailed out. Murray and Matt did the best they can to keep the ship running honestly. Sales slipped and they had to do the unthinkable things..

    Advice to Management

    For a company with some many products, it would be better to specialize in certain areas than being jack of all trade. Communicate to the employees.

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

    Pros

    Ability to work from anywhere. Good benefits.
    Distributed workforce and they never hesitated to fly a resource out w/little notice to support a client/deal.

    Cons

    Tibco is irrelevant in the marketplace. Products woefully outdated - evidenced by longtime marquee clients moving off of Tibco. Core architecture is dated and ability to adapt to cloud/microservices environments is shaky. Perhaps only 35% of the "stack" works adequately - what does it say when the flagship platform release takes 2+ years to become "production ready"?

    Organization is keeping lights on from successes of 5-10 years ago. Became very clear when Tibco was doing well, they simply did ELAs. The remaining salesforce who do well are largely account managers renewing those ELAs or threatening compliance action. There is simply little new logo business and continually lose out on competitive deals.

    Operations and legal were the worst I've ever seen at a firm. No visibility, transparency, or accountability. When Vista came in, they hired 20-somethings to handle legal matters that were over their heads. It took weeks/months, rather than hours/days, for small items to be completed. Incredibly frustrating for clients.

    The market strategy never made sense. Tibco has poor or no relations w/many SI partners, so company continually is edged out of conversations. The individual who runs partnerships is incredibly incompetent, yet protected by exec team.

    Marketing is/was a disaster. Essentially consists of attaching Tibco to every new trend/development in hopes that someone won't realize how irrelevant the tech is.

    Sales Mgt is made up of recycled industry clowns who spend 90% of their time churning thru spreadhseets vs helping the field.

    Advice to Management

    The tech vision and leadership is terrible. How many times do you need to get up and do a TED talk and then fall on your face to become embarrassed? How many failed product launches until a change is made?

    Cut the dead weight from the leadership team, most of whom have played a key role in making the company the shell of its former self.
    Vista should sell off the components for as much as they can. In its current form, the company's value is held down by legacy tech that won't go anywhere.

    Pros

    have the opportunities to work on different projects with different companies without changing your job. A broad spectrum of enterprise software technologies for you to learn and thrive.

    Cons

    business stared going down since privatization. Promotion can be slow and very much dependent on the financial performance of the company.

    Advice to Management

    retain the good people, do not keep sending experienced people to the competitors. keep focused on marketing and sales execution.

    I worked at TIBCO Software (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Its a double-edged sword, but the benefit of being owned by Vista is that there is some actual experience in the areas of operations that will improve the company.

    Firm is continuing to acquire companies that are relevant in the marketplace, mostly because it can't develop anymore

    Cons

    Entire market opportunity consists of firms that invested in Tibco over the last 5-10 years. Demand from new logos is non-existent. Furthermore, the top tech talent gravitate towards the largest and most probable projects so they can get paid. End result is people (nepotism abounds) who sit on large existing accts can do well, the rest starve with the remaining inexperienced resources.

    Marketing generates maybe 1 qualified lead per rep each quarter.

    The tech leadership hasn't launched a successful product in 3+ years and they are far behind the curve on the cloud (even though that was supposed to be the '15 deliverable). Its no wonder they are getting lumped into the 'legacy' bin.

    Tibco has no partner ecosystem and no real plans on developing one other than lip service. Result is that clients are faced with a choice of internal resources and Tibco PSG only for implementation. Its a big red flag for CIOs.

    Operations are a black hole, legal understaffed and confused by their own agreements. Deals get 86'd because the legal organization is inflexible.

    Advice to Management

    The tools you think are going to help you execute are simply tools to micromanage and waste people's time.

    Pros

    * Great products, used by the customers to do some truly amazing things
    * Great people, making it a great place to work
    * Flexibility, allowing you to do what is needed to get your work done. If you are someone who is self-motivated the environment is one that you can get a lot done in and be recognized for your contribution
    * Overall compensation package, benefits, etc. very good

    Cons

    * Like any mid-size to large company some decisions are made slow
    * The recent change in control resulted in cutbacks in some areas to provide focus and investment in other areas, resulting in loss of some talented people

    Advice to Management

    * Continue to define the vision and focus around the Fast Data platform, it is resonating well with customers and will help drive our growth.

    Pros

    Smart people
    Good products
    Good benefits
    Fair salary

    Cons

    Vista bought Tibco ... what more can you say?

    Just look at the reviews of other companies that Vista aquired.

    It will go down the drain. They will sequeeze them out. The only place at this company is for people who own them.

    Huge layoffs have already begun, ... further cost cutting wlll follow!

    VIsta has a playbook that they execute. Just read the other reviews.

    Pros

    TIBCO provides the leading business integration technology and solution to many types of industrial companies.

    Cons

    TIBCO is very conservative in spending on their budget.

    Advice to Management

    Improve advertising the TIBCO brand. There are many people who are using TIBCO in their daily life activities, but never heard about TIBCO as a company.
