    Pros

    TIBCO has been a wonderful place to work for me, although the department you are in really seems to make a big difference on whether you enjoy your time at TIBCO or not. Work/Life balance is really good, and I enjoy the work I'm involved in.

    Cons

    The Denver location is mostly driven and headed by the finance department, and in the past if you were not in the finance department you were an afterthought in the office. There is still some of that but the presence of other departments is growing in the Denver area.

    Pros

    The Greenwood Village office is a nice environment with some great people working there. The company provides snacks and drinks, and has a good work area.

    Cons

    Most of management is in the Bay Area, and are not effective at managing remote people. This company is 20 years old, and in some ways is still stuck in the 90s. Lack of change, an old boys network, and managers who are examples of the Peter Principle are major drawbacks.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just promote people to manage others because they've been around a long time. managers should treat employees like the assets they are, not nuisances to be stomped on.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Most people are easy to get along with.
    -You are given a good amount of freedom to explore solutions.
    -Some very smart and talented people.
    -Good work/life balance

    Cons

    -Low pay
    -Cost cutting and outsourcing makes one feel not very secure, like your position could be next
    -Chaotic, undisciplined environment that always seems to be in catch-up and react mode
    -End product is often times sloppy
    -High level of apathy, especially among middle management
    -Boys club in some teams. Other reviews are right in calling out a double standard in how men and women are treated.

    Advice to Management

    Be innovative not just in technology, but in internal processes and leadership; some managers are living in the past. Focus on what you do best, trim down the product portfolio, and move those resources to make the good products even better.

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

    Pros

    I have been working for well over the past 20 years as a technical consultant. They send me in where many have failed in order for me to salvage a client or a project. I have yet to fail on these types of assignments. TIBCO was no exception to this rule.

    I had the best boss for the 5 years I was with the company. He treated me with dignity and respect. I received feedback from him on a regular basis, a trait I have yet to find as much in my current employer.

    Although the work was extremely demanding in both time and patience the pay was extremely good and bonuses (well it was actually called commission).

    Cons

    Often the work required extremely long hours, and like any consulting role this at times accompanied by clientele that treated you with disdain. I mean why hire our

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more concerned with keeping good talent in the door. This seems to have changed immediately after Vista Equity bought the organization from Vivek Randive. Vivek treated his talent well and was very successful in his quest to build the company from the ground up. This did not seem to weigh into Vista Equity's decision to pick up the company. Their sole vision was one of profits. It would seem this has hampered their ability to maintain the top talent as was once the case under Vivek.

    Management would be served well to consider all of the angles of their business. Hiring less talented individuals all in the name of saving money has very rarely been proven to be a good long term strategy. Wake up!
