    Pros

    If you are management many pros, as they do mostly nothing but waste time together and are disconnected from what is going on.

    Cons

    Company is going towards being a body shop. They recently got bought out and the owning company and managers are only concerned with 'efficiency'. That relates to giving more money to management and sales people (without any true benefit to the actual sale). The company is probably being set up to put lipstick on a pig to sell off. Not worth the time.

    Advice to Management

    Quit the field and leave. Let people who care more about the actual employees and work than just fleecing the company and being dellusional.

    Pros

    Really nice and hardworking people(minus the management). Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Tibco used to be a great company till about a year and half ago. Management is too busy playing politics that it has turned a blind eye to the products and the people working there.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of jumping on every new buzz word technology out there concentrate on modernizing the core products. Compensate and look after the employees. Good products can only come from employees who are motivated and mentally stimulated.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working in a software support role can be demanding at times, webex sessions and calls can take up much of your day. Training courses provided, and in house mentoring to aid in getting up to speed. They do have some nice amenities in the Arlington office, foosball, drinks and snacks provided. You also get compensated for working on call weekends. Raises this year after several years of no, or very minimal increases were given. Good insurance right now, but that may change at the next open enrollment.

    Cons

    Stuck in the same position unless you want to move, the office is small, so not much to advance too unless the manager leaves, or you want to relocate. Vacation policy also varies from office to office, so check with your manager on what that location offers. No employee reviews given this year, may be from too many changes since the buy out

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on what you relay in the meetings. There are many meetings, but they feel redundant, as the same information is pretty much given each time.

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

    Pros

    Trying really hard to think of some right now. The longer tenured staff tend to hold on to the startup roots and culture which make day to day work enjoyable. Company is flexible with working location, wether from any of their worldwide offices or from home.

    Cons

    Ever since the December 2014 purchase of TIBCO by VISTA Equity Partners and the company being taken private, over 10% of the work force has been laid off or quit. Have not seen a salary increase in over 4 years, and all future raises have been put on hold. Only expect to see a raise if you are the last person standing in your department and they are desperate to keep you. Loyalty is no longer rewarded.

    Complete disregard for paying bills at the corporate level. Constantly having to interface with vendors wondering where their money is. This in turn is alienating vendors and making it harder to do our jobs.

    Political infighting and positioning is at an all time high. Managers and above spend the majority of their time playing these games to get anything done.

    Advice to Management

    Guys, we get it. We were taken private and the ultimate goal is to improve the bottom line, but alienating entire teams of people and constantly resisting change is not the solution. Regardless of what you might believe, you have bright people working for you who do know more than you do. Listen to them. Promote them. Foster their ideas. Learn from them.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Ok culture (changed drastically after big layoff during start of the year). Good brand name.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Though depends on your group. Leadership is clueless about direction of company and various portfolio companies. And working hard to get the focus in right direction. Not steady environment. Lot of great people left the company recently.

    Advise people on H1B or having Visa dependency to be very careful as the legal department here has group of people with no intention to help anyone and don't care for it.

    Advice to Management

    Hope leaders get the direction of company right as company seems to have great potentials with very talented and hard working folks and leaders around.
