    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.

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    Efforts on product side have been good, but certain solutions are so outdated - update sales team

    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.

    Pros

    Benefits, Salary, Good People that want to do the right thing but are limited by the company's infrastructure and culture

    Cons

    Culture, Executive Strategy (Lack of Vision) although it may be improving, Poor Role Clarity (although I think its improving), Every man for himself (no sense of team), Dont care about their employees. I was there for more than 4 years and was always hopeful things would turn around. Was never rewarded for new ideas / performance

    Advice to Management

    Improve role clarity, secure & develop strong leaders, unite all teams around one vision and discrete goals, support and enable open dialogue and reward people for new ideas and strong performance.

    Pros

    Spotfire used to be leading visualization product in 1998. But TIBCO bought them and stopped funding meaningful work. Sadly it shows.

    Cons

    The worst cross-silo communication ever. The product management division was clueless. The marketing group had a rapid revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Sell your options and run to the door on the sinking ship.
