    Pros

    If you are a self starter it can be a very rewarding sales job. I have been here for 16 years and it has been a great run. You can build your own franchise.

    Cons

    A bit more process added since being acquired by Vista. Salesforce has become a bit bloated but still does not take too much time. Increase marketing spend.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some equity for top performers.

    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.

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time

    Pros

    They have good benefits, good 401K and good time off.

    Cons

    The morale is horrible, the higher level executives spend money on things like presidents club and spend thousands of dollars for things that benefit them, yet they say they cannot give bonuses and raises! No one respects the CEO or the Head of HR. People speak badly about them everywhere. Lots of politics in this company. Its all about who you know. Only some departments allow working from home, most do not. Lots of bad managers. If the CEO is not a supporter, that trickles down the chain.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending unnecessary money, invest in your employees. try to retain the good employees and get rid of the bad ones. Retrain your management to become better managers.

    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.
