    Pros

    Good Technology stack
    Good co-workers
    Flexibilty in terms of working hours
    Career path options
    No micro management(at least in some BU's)

    Cons

    NO office culture
    Severe politics - All about knowing the right people
    Product offering is becoming pre-historic - alot of unwillingness to try something new(although certain pockets are trying to change this)
    TERRIBLE Management - across all BU's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have HR willing to work for Employees, not the Company
    Train management team to know how to both people manage and manage themselves.
    Listen to your bright Employee's.

    Great technology, Great people, Crap leadership

    Former Employee - Senior Solutions Consultant
    Former Employee - Senior Solutions Consultant

    I worked at TIBCO Software

    Pros

    Mostly cool technology and colleagues who are intelligent and willing to go the extra mile. Camaraderie and social side is good. Sales conferences were good.

    Cons

    Crap knowledge management, crap leadership, probably wil get acquired this year. Frustration with company direction. Once you get to a certain level, it's hard to get further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a realistic look at the market and see where the opportunities are. You were on a nice track to the business with BPM, but now you've gone all techy again with Matrix. Ditch the crap software which you can't compete with (at least BAM, Portal).

    TIBCO is the first company i got on boarded in. It added me a prestigious token in my life.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    TIBCO Software is the leading independent provider of infrastructure software creating event-enabled enterprises to use on-premise or as part of cloud computing environments.
    Since it is a product based company, Employee growth is proportional to the organization growth.

    Cons

    Nothing much as of now.

    I guess company is sort of going from a rough patch from past 2 years, there was very limited scope of growth.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA (US)

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Work from home flexibility when needed
    -Casual office
    -Overall okay coworkers

    Cons

    -Disorganization
    -Lack of training for new hires regarding any sort of company policies regarding expenses, po's, approval processes contractors etc (there is a company employee site that has some docs but most are outdated and not detailed)
    -Lack of benefits for MA employees, no gym for example, even though there was a gym in the location's building- Not even a discount was allowed to us- The Palo Alto location however receives that benefit.
    -Extremely unprofessional looking office space- Including-things like thrifted office furniture, a kitchen out in the open from the year 1972 and all outdated scanners, printers etc Very low end for a large organization. No amount of cleaning or organization could make it appear acceptable for customer meetings our outsiders to visit
    -Facilities management never in the office, they have the person split between two locations
    -Very poor communication skills between headquarters and other offices- it's unacceptable when all the offices rely on responses or follow ups/ approvals from the main office- I and countless others had to save emails and documents going back years because of their lack of professionalism to prove they were sent with documents that were needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear communication
    Clearly worded expectations when assigning tasks that are outside the daily expectations
    Follow up with employees on yearly review cycles- it is required by each one of us to file the paper work/ it should be required of you to read and review in order to ensure the employee better understands how they can improve.
    Update your outdated expense systems and approval processes/ make people accountable for their time management in regards to both.
    Finances- the office I worked at frequently did not have their bills paid on time- internet and phone services were cut off more than once which is completely unacceptable for such a large organization.
    Spend less money on hundred dollar lunches and tens of thousands of dollars on "kick offs" and more on a nicer facility, updated equipment from this century and a employee training day, on their first day which includes all the basics.

    Pros

    Hi,
    I worked as Senior Info Systems Analyst from Pune office. Good people, flexible working hours, very good work life balance, if interested, company would be ready to invest on u to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    For my role, onsite- offshore coordination was not very good. All on your own so until you ask for work no one would give you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the good job
