    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

    Software. The product is amazing.

    Cons

    It's a sinking ship. Poor management, poor work culture, people are giving up. Vista will take over shortly and cut everyone non essential and run the company into the ground and milk it for renewals.

    Advice to Management

    Right the ship and stop rewarding the snakes in the company.

    Pros

    Don't believe all of the negative reviews. Restructuring is a necessary evil in today's world and people can be bitter. I've been with TIBCO for 4 years and I love my job! I was told from Day 1 that I can be whatever I want to be at TIBCO (from the VP of HR) and I have taken that to heart. I have had several interesting positions & am proud of the products that we have! I have the opportunity to interact with the Executive Leadership and they are very good people who want to see us succeed. I'm in it to win it!!

    Cons

    I wish the commute was better but that is not the company's fault.

    Advice to Management

    Keep forging ahead - we got this!!

    Pros

    Some really, really good people still left behind, mostly due to visa issues.
    About 50 people still believe there is a future.

    Some fantastic products and a couple of new super cool products.
    These products literally sell themselves, despite attempts to kill them.

    Cons

    Management is the stuff of nightmares.
    Totally inept people promoted as decision makers, rewarded themselves with millions
    Self rewarding continues.
    Watch the NBA Playoffs at Oakland, see them on row 2- premium seating. After abysmal sales and really bad products, they rewarded themselves these seats, meant for deserving employees - particularly hurtful
    This is shameless, immoral and illegal, in my book. Shame!

    Advice to Management

    The good managers (all three of them) should fire the bad ones (all 10 of them)
    Spot the idiots and encourage the competition to hire them!
    Restore morale, now! Else there will be a fire sale of parts soon,

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work from anywhere. Good benefits.
    Distributed workforce and they never hesitated to fly a resource out w/little notice to support a client/deal.

    Cons

    Tibco is irrelevant in the marketplace. Products woefully outdated - evidenced by longtime marquee clients moving off of Tibco. Core architecture is dated and ability to adapt to cloud/microservices environments is shaky. Perhaps only 35% of the "stack" works adequately - what does it say when the flagship platform release takes 2+ years to become "production ready"?

    Organization is keeping lights on from successes of 5-10 years ago. Became very clear when Tibco was doing well, they simply did ELAs. The remaining salesforce who do well are largely account managers renewing those ELAs or threatening compliance action. There is simply little new logo business and continually lose out on competitive deals.

    Operations and legal were the worst I've ever seen at a firm. No visibility, transparency, or accountability. When Vista came in, they hired 20-somethings to handle legal matters that were over their heads. It took weeks/months, rather than hours/days, for small items to be completed. Incredibly frustrating for clients.

    The market strategy never made sense. Tibco has poor or no relations w/many SI partners, so company continually is edged out of conversations. The individual who runs partnerships is incredibly incompetent, yet protected by exec team.

    Marketing is/was a disaster. Essentially consists of attaching Tibco to every new trend/development in hopes that someone won't realize how irrelevant the tech is.

    Sales Mgt is made up of recycled industry clowns who spend 90% of their time churning thru spreadhseets vs helping the field.

    Advice to Management

    The tech vision and leadership is terrible. How many times do you need to get up and do a TED talk and then fall on your face to become embarrassed? How many failed product launches until a change is made?

    Cut the dead weight from the leadership team, most of whom have played a key role in making the company the shell of its former self.
    Vista should sell off the components for as much as they can. In its current form, the company's value is held down by legacy tech that won't go anywhere.
