    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

    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.

    I worked at TIBCO Software (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large scale enterprise software company, runs some critical processes for some of the biggest companies in the world

    Cons

    Limited or no growth for the company, lack of career development. Very tops-down company eith limited visibility to strategy or rationale for decision making. Private entity with PE backer means limited financial upside. If you just want a job in software, its a safe place. If you want to grow personally and professionally, not the best option.

    Advice to Management

    Increaee transparency, make bonus program actually viable. Its ridiculous that Sales people make their commission but the rest of the company gets stiffed on bonus because Sales missed their targets, depressing EBITDA

    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.

    Pros

    have the opportunities to work on different projects with different companies without changing your job. A broad spectrum of enterprise software technologies for you to learn and thrive.

    Cons

    business stared going down since privatization. Promotion can be slow and very much dependent on the financial performance of the company.

    Advice to Management

    retain the good people, do not keep sending experienced people to the competitors. keep focused on marketing and sales execution.
