    Pros

    The employees are very nice and team oriented.

    Cons

    Company is getting ruthless in cutting cost, especially in the Palo Alto office. They did a workforce reduction right before Christmas and after the fiscal year end just to avoid paying them the annual bonus.

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

    Pros

    Reasonable work life balance
    Reasonable work load
    on-site cafe (as HQ is pretty remote)

    Cons

    During my tenure there, I felt as though I work in a bubble. People work in silos; absolutely no sense of teaming or cross collaboration. While I am fine working independently, this environment felt unusually isolating.

    Advice to Management

    To this day, I don't know have any idea what Tibco does or what it stands for as a Company.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Clueless managers means gainful employment for several semi retirees
    Spreadsheet based cuts means you can manipulate numbers!

    Cons

    Innovation is fast disappearing
    Chasing penny wise gains and losing millions
    Brown nosing at its worst

    Advice to Management

    At least pretend that you care!
    Grow a pair and you can still right this ship
    Your bosses - the equity guys are just pimping the company to get investment dollars from big wealthy individuals

    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.
