    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).

    Pros

    Company is supportive for those who want to work on international assignments or movement within other departments within the organization.
    Good 401k match, commuter check subsidy of $100 per month. Multiple offices across the globe so work is handed over to different regions, very good model for 24x7 kind of work.

    Cons

    Bonus varies as per company performance. No official work from home policy. Can do better with employee training and career/professional development.
