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

    Pros

    My boss is awesome. He's super encouraging, and he really knows his stuff when it comes to our software. He lets me screw up, and gives me 'unvarnished feedback' in such a way that it feel constructive. Overall, the company has a ton of potential and, I feel, the right people leading things.

    Cons

    The product that I work on, Spotfire, is better at 'the hard stuff' than our competitors, but our competitors are 'prettier'. That doesn't sound like a huge problem until you realize that 'pretty' matters quite a bit in the data visualization space.

    Also, TIBCO has something like 400 products overall. Sometimes, it's hard to really know what resources are really available.

    Advice to Management

    Often times, it's very easy to prioritize what to focus on when you're a company like ours; where the history has been B2B selling. But with software like Spotfire, we need to remember that the people who we need to convince are real people too, and things like ease of use and prettiness will often trump advanced statistical analysis.

    Pros

    Even though TIBCO is such a large company, the work environment is a lot like a start-up—creativity is appreciated and sought-after and the exchange of ideas is always welcomed. The management doesn't treat you like you're beneath them; instead, they align themselves as peers, which results in a much more enjoyable work experience and increased productivity.

    Cons

    There are so many products we offer, that it can sometimes seem like we could do better if we had a more narrow focus. Quantity doesn't beat quality when it comes to enterprise software.

    The founder and CEO is personable and a 21st century innovator. He truly cares about his employees and his company.

    Cons

    The cafeteria sometimes sells out of delicious pastries - but don't worry, they will be back the next day!
