    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!

    Pros

    Amazing benefits program. Nice perks in the various offices.

    Cons

    Everything is a drawn out process limiting ones ability to actually get work done. Further, as a private equity, ones feelings of ownership over their work is limited.

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None, after the acquisition from Vista

    Cons

    After the acquisition, we got threats about being fired almost every other week. No vision, no future anymore. Only threats and management-by-spreadsheet. Miserable culture. The old TIBCO where all of us were proud of being there is gone. I am writing this review just to help professionals on the field in AVOIDING going here. Current management is just shattering the company.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to get rid of people, JUST DO. But, as long as someone is IN, it would be advisable to keep the resource happy and motivated.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, wfh, unlimited PTO

    Cons

    Not much raise or Bonus. There are no Stock options. Their long term direction is to outsource to other geo locations and get the work done at lower cost moving away from the Silicon Valley.

    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.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company.

    Cons

    -No business strategy
    -Constant hiring & then massive layoffs
    -Inept Mgmt and HR
    -No teamwork
    -long hours, inadequate pay
    -outdated equipment

    And yes, as another reviewer recently mentioned, TIBCO had 2 large waves of layoffs right before Christmas and they laid everyone off one week prior to paying out the annual bonuses so that they didn’t have to pay them a dime. Shameful and unethical. Those people worked very hard for you.

    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.
