    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.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    +Benefits are great
    +Pay is on par with industry standards (for my position at least)
    +Flexibility makes working from home possible which helps with transit costs.
    +Useful products and high-value customers make working at TIBCO interesting every day.

    Cons

    - Uncertainty regarding the future of the company (i.e. to be sold or to go public again) and some lack of transparency there results in some stress about job security.
    - Working at a remote office can cause some feelings of being disconnected from the main workforce in Palo Alto.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with employees about what the plans are for the company. Going public vs. being acquired makes a big difference when it comes to job security.

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Opportunity to work on latest tech , if you are in the product and engineering teams
    Flex schedules - "just get your stuff done, don't care what time you show up, what time you leave" philosophy.
    Very little micro-management , enough autonomy
    Leaders have become more proactive diversity champions or are being trained to thanks to some very visible HR initiatives.
    For those that have worked at TIBCO and left several years back due to the culture back then, you might actually be pleasantly surprised by the changes and transformation the company has undergone

    Cons

    Some of the pros listed above are not yet widespread in some parts of the organization , as e.g diversity. There are still some teams that tend to encourage "old boys network" thereby not leaving too many opportunities to rise through the ranks if you are not in those networks.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have gotten extremely lucky with some amazing projects at TIBCO, traveling around the world and working with prestigious and well-known organizations. the experience I've earned over my time here has been valuable and has made me easily marketable to not only other organizations, but also private consulting. TIBCO being used across many many verticals gives me a lot of potential to continue working on technology I know and understand in a variety of customers. people in the company are overall sincere and we look out for each other.

    Cons

    recently TIBCO was purchased by a private venture capitalist company, the amount of administrative "busywork" which I personally don't find valuable has increased. our quarterly review process has become more and more painful. and internal communication can be very weak at times. our bonus structure was recently reformatted, requiring professional services consultants to sell to customers, among other things.

    Advice to Management

    hold BDMs more accountable. reduce focus on HR/admin tasks. streamline bonus structure to be more aligned with utilization, like it used to be.
