    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 3 years

    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

    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).

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I started working at TIBCO straight out of college as a digital marketing intern. I had a lot to learn, and I can easily say that at my time here at TIBCO, I don't think I could have learned more anywhere else. You are surrounded by a lot of creative and intelligent people who have a lot of experience and know what they are doing. Everyone supports one another, and the benefits are great as well. I would recommend working there to anyone.

    Cons

    The cafe gets extremely crowded and they just increased the price of food there by quite a bit.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Lots of learning opportunities
    - You'll get a glimpse of latest trends
    - Work culture is also great
    - Good work/life Balance
    - nice medical/other benefits

    Cons

    - You may get loaded if your colleague leaves as there won't be any hiring done for quite sometime
    - Poor Training management. Classroom training can change/cancel & may not be arranged for long time (However, TEN material is awesome)
    - Salary increments (appraisals) are not significant/good. Even promotions won't make a big change in your salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Training should be managed appropriately.
    - Apart from following industry trend in terms of other process/benefits (like notice period) we should also make sure that increments/promotion process are also in par with them
    - There should be freedom of discussing package. I believe, hiding it within company only creates a bad impression about company
    - Benefits should be given as per experience (need not be considered at joining only)

    I have been working at TIBCO Software for more than a year

    Pros

    Good technology and smart employees. Nice HQ location, benefits.

    Cons

    Senior and middle management clueless. Many directors and VPs don't even deserve to be first-line managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dump unwanted products and consolidate brand identity around some products. Don't try to be a jack of all trades.
