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

    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

    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    - Great technology
    - Smart and likeable co-workers

    Cons

    - Out of sync with market needs
    - Product quality issues
    - Top management in disarray and no real blueprint for success

    Advice to Management

    Get some diverse perspectives in the boardroom, seek feedback from employees & customers, and above all, do some basic market research to know what should be your key focus

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

    Pros

    The companies has improved by leaps and bounds over the last 2 years since I started. Systems, data, marketing, and sales have become incredibly strategic under re-focused leadership.

    TIBCO has made intelligent product acquisitions and is headed in the right direction. Leadership has focused a lot on hiring young people with high potential to succeed, which is one of the main reasons for the turn-around.

    This is a great mid-sized company to work for and I'd recommend it for anyone fresh out of college as well as seasoned professionals.

    Cons

    Some senior team members (but no higher than manager level) are rewarded based on years rather than skill.

    Advice to Management

    Involve your lower level employees more when making a new hire.

    Pros

    Great product roadmap and differentiated offerings the markets wants
    Strong leadership...especially from newly anointed COO
    Great culture, cross functional and engaged team's and customer focused environment
    Ability to truly effect change and make a difference
    Great career opportunities for those who put in the work

    Cons

    Not a place to "blend in" ....no Oracle, IBM or SAP culture of being a cog in the wheel here-people have to work and be accountable- so not for the faint of heart

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing
    Retain and attract top talent
    Continue to focus on the clients
    Do not lose sight of 3, 5 and 7 year changing marketplace and customer needs

    Pros

    TIBCO is probably the best meritocracy I've ever worked for. That may not sit well with poor performers or those who think tenure matters more.

    Cons

    This isn't a coddling company.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent about what's going well and not.

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers technical knowledge and they share information when you ask, is very ease to work with them. Benefits it's so good and the dynamism of work home-office, sometimes, is the differential.

    Cons

    On phase of changes, they need keep focus in the strategy, that is currently confused.

    Advice to Management

    The manager need build/invest/believe in your team, and not just to himself.
