    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

    Many talented senior resources committed to success of the products and commitment to their customers.

    Cons

    Executive management has gutted the entire services selling and delivery model. People continue to leave or get riffed in the name of margin. Low enthusiasm. Future not clear.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to be honest with the services team because TIBCO services executives are not. CEO needs to hold services executives accountable for their results on all hands calls instead of allowing them to blame others. Let everyone know the services vision so your services team can determine if they want a career with TIBCO or find other opportunities.
