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

    Pros

    Management and coworkers are friendly and focused on solving problems.

    When you schedule vacation, it is respected. Prior company, I was told to delay my planned vacation to deal with an urgent issue. I have never experienced this at TIBCO. I am encouraged to take time for myself.

    Cons

    Sometimes complicated projects will have events happen out of sequence. This is because of different silos.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. TIBCO is a relaxing company to work for and there is challenging work.

    Pros

    This is my 10th year at TIBCO and I have seen it grow and evolve with the times. TIBCO is constantly innovating and has world class products. Opinions are valued and the people listen. Collaboration is the strongest I’ve seen between all areas of the business.

    Cons

    More about me learning work, life and Balance.

    Advice to Management

    This is the strongest structure of leadership we’ve had with very clear direction on goals and focus for the future.

    Pros

    Great work / life balance, very flexible, understanding management.
    Unlimited time off, good health insurance and other perks. Management invests in individual and team growth and it's possible to see a clear career path if the individual works on it. The opportunity is there but needs to be chased.

    Cons

    The internal communication needs to improve greatly in order to provide a better customer experience. Teams do not communicate well with one another, take too long to respond to inquiries and the customer is left waiting.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more functional interaction between different departments. The lack of communication can be very frustrating at times.

    Pros

    Still some great technology (the older versions)
    Some great, dedicated hard-working people

    Cons

    Some really dumb execs
    Most staying on to milk it
    Consultancy group will be spreads heeted out of existence

    Advice to Management

    Bring it back to the days of true customer service
    Dump spread sheeters, fast!

    Pros

    * Great Work-Life Balance
    * Employees are treated respectfully
    * Very flexible

    Cons

    * Worse immigration team, treats others as a joke. Doesn't even care to listen for a minute, they are next to bullies.
    * Company's performance isn't that great, no proper year-end bonuses or hikes
    * Not sure if HR cares
    * Doesn't work as a tech company in silicon valley, they are slow in decision makings, older technologies & lot of unrequired processes
    * Lastly, too many politics.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * They are poised for success and continue to diversify their revenue streams
    * There is an increased focus on business intelligence and using data to make decisions instead of gut
    * Increasing focus on collaboration across and among the functional units at the business
    * The culture continues to be a strong point - flexibility is key and the friendliness of colleagues is amazing! There also is an added focus on diversity across the organization which is needed.
    * Despite the private equity ownership, the executives continue to inject their own creativity and strategy into the next few years. Its notable and appreciated.

    Cons

    * This most recent year was a down year for bonuses and increases. While I do believe that is limited to this year, it is a downer.
    * Private equity ownership - despite the executives best work - still looms large over the certainty that individual employees feel.
    * There is still somewhat of a 'new' versus 'old' philosophy in terms of employees and practices.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and focus on collaboration and being increasingly data driven.
