    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    TIBCO really is a place where you can run your own business within the Vista owned mothership. That is a good thing! Lots of freedom to innovate and think outside of the box. It's a great environment to grow professionally, and take on more responsibilities and expand your role.

    Cons

    The squeaky wheel gets the oil - you have an opportunity to be part of something great, but you have to go and get it. Nothing will be spoon fed.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key, and we have seen great improvements in this area. Monthly management meetings are great.

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    TIBCO is a great company with a great suite of products. It is not a great place to learn. If you know what you are doing already and work hard, there is a lot of opportunity

    Cons

    If you don’t have a hard skillset, you may find yourself lost in the shuffle with no one to help develop you. Great second job, not first. If you can get into the SC training program, that is the place to be at TIBCO. The lack of structure applies to sales

    Advice to Management

    Efforts on product side have been good, but certain solutions are so outdated - update sales team

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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. A lot of perks if you work in Palo Alto.

    Cons

    No real investment in new ideas or products. Feudalistic management style with numerous fiefdoms within the company. "Customer first" mantra was killed when Mr Rode took over from Vivek Ranadive.

    Advice to Management

    Reinstate the "customer first" attitude. Invest in research and development, not in mergers and acquisitions. Successful software companies are run by visionaries and technical gurus, not accountants. Get rid of Mr. Rode and hire a visionary CEO.

    Pros

    1) Work/life Balance.
    2) Nice people
    3) Flexibility

    Cons

    No growth, direction seems faint and compensation is way below market standard. False communication-How is company doing well in almost all quarters but during raise the communication was "sorry we dont have enough budget to give reasonable hike" ? I

    Advice to Management

    Stick to promises and reward current employees, try to retain talents and consider people valuable and set the right direction and encouragement for people currently trying to give their best.

    Pros

    work life balance and nothing more

    Cons

    The company does not care about your career development. It's private-equity back so everything is just about cost cutting. It's very hard to advance from junior level to senior level.

    Advice to Management

    Please give people room to advance their career!

    Pros

    Broad and deep product line

    Cons

    Mashery product has not been invested in and is non-competitive

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the Mashery product to make it competitive in the market
    Create an environment that enables sales people to work together across product lines

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Medium-sized company and a great location (located in Palo Alto)
    - Engineering department has good number of women

    Cons

    - Do not pay as per the market
    - The first year was great but since the company started to not do so good over time, the salary increment wasn't great at all. It was public while I was there and then was acquired by a private equity firm.
    - Didn't take care of their employees well.
    -The immigration department was painful to deal with. Would revoke your I-140 if you would leave the company.
