    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits, negotiable perks, manageable work hours (most of the time), helpful and hardworking employees (non-management)

    Cons

    Current CTO is excellent but his vision doesn't trickle to engineering micro teams.
    Field consultants have an excellent support community that exists in isolation from sales/engineering
    If you're anywhere except Sales or upper management- your efforts won't be well compensated

    Advice to Management

    You have to stop the internal politics if we want to take the company back where it once was.

    Pros

    Good pay and nice benefits. Exposure to training and lots of software solutions.

    Cons

    There is little to no collobaration as the resources are all over the world and in many cases spread very thin. If you are not connected with the correct team you find yourself uniformed and always feeling disconnected.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for employees to work together. Do a better job with communication and transparency

    Pros

    It's great to work in a cloud-based product team in TIBCO. You'll be involved in working with all other TIBCO products in different teams. You have the chance to go abroad to different centers of TIBCO which is a very exciting thing.

    Cons

    The salary rise is slow. They try to save money to acquire new company or do something else. More and more senior engineers begin to lose patient and left.

    Advice to Management

    Please look important to your stuff, try to give them a rise actively, otherwise, they'll think about changing company. Especially for the senior engineers.

    Pros

    From the professional services point of view:

    Great benefits,
    Decent commission plan (used to better but still pretty decent)
    Less workload/pressure
    Good place for people who want to take some time off to relax

    Cons

    Silos to begin with! There is no formal channel for services to provide feedback to engineering. New products releases are received by the customers and TIBCO services at the same time which makes the services just as unaware of the product features as the customers themselves.

    On the silos, there also seems like a complete disconnect between the HR and the field managers as far as hiring is concerned. People are hired, trained and laid off without even getting an opportunity on a single project. And this seems to be a quarterly phenomena.

    TIBCO has lost the race when it comes to its core capability -Integration. They have failed to adopt to the nuances in the field and seem to be only playing a game of catching up with growing players.

    Despite going private, the culture of taking sole guidance from quarterly numbers doesn't seem to be changing. The commissions plans both for services and sales are still quarter based which makes every dimension myopic and lacking of any long term strategy or view.

    Advice to Management

    Establish channels between your silos. You'll keep wasting money on training people and losing talent pertaining to your short term quarterly mindsets otherwise.
