    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

    Nice working atmosphere , family oriented, flexible working hours.

    Cons

    In order to get employed you have to pass a non sense practice twice. It doesn't have anything to do with you job title. Lame...

    Advice to Management

    Drop the pre-employment test and count the actual people work experience, you turn down a lot of experienced folks.

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    availability to work from home

    Cons

    Many cliques in the offices, and definite boys club feeling in management culture. Lots of gossip overheard. Not a training environment, very much a "look it up or figure it out yourself" mentality. Lack of defined role responsibilities and unclear growth chart. Not legally stated but unspoken expectation to be working around the clock.

    Great culture, Great colleagues, Great benefits

    Cons

    After acquisition, things changed. Does not have the same vision/culture as before.

    None

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    TIBCO has extremely smart people dedicated to solving complex problems. There is much to learn, if you try. Life/work balance has always been a real plus, especially for people with a family.

    Cons

    Understanding the macro and micro strategy is challenging due to little open communication. Departments act mostly in silos, though some individuals manage to bridge them.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time communicating and learn to love doing it. People at all levels need to see the VPs and above more in order to trust them.

    Pros

    International customers working on really interesting and innovative projects. Some great products - eg Spotfire. Pre-sales and data science people very good.

    Cons

    Resources are always tight, and since being sold that has got worse. Many good people have left. Some products not up to scratch and that can lead to difficult conversations with customers. HR policies are Dickensian.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on the good products, cull the old and creaking stuff. Be nicer to your staff.

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

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, flexible work schedule

    Cons

    No direction given. Sought out guidance only to have emails ignored by senior level managers/employees. Changed pay structure shortly after I signed my contract to start

    Advice to Management

    Need to give more guidance to new employees and hire managers that actually care about their employees.

    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

    Smart Engineers to work with and awesome products.

    Cons

    Not friendly if you are a person working on some VISA. Not friendly for immigration help when you are at the company or you leave the company.
    The HR department or Immigration department is not at all helpfull.
    They do not think of the immigration situation of a person at all.

    They have POLICIES for everything.
    Obtaining Employment verification Letters has Policies and a personal recommendation also has Policies.

    Advice to Management

    LOOK INTO YOUR POLICIES
