    Good Technology stack

    Flexibilty in terms of working hours

    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).

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

    Pros

    Best culture.
    Flexible timings. You just don't have to go to office most of the times.
    High configuration laptop ( like Mac book pro or Windows), Iphone or Samsung galaxy grand 2 with International SIM card, Data card dongle, Corporate Credit Card.
    Office in Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad.
    Awesome pay and employee benefits.

    Cons

    Please don't join TIBBR or TIBCO Engage or TIBCO Loyality labs. They just fired about about 100-400 employees around the globe from these departments.
    Very bad and non helpful colleagues.
    Too much flexibility in Bangalore office and employees come drunk and work during lunch time.
    No HR in Bangalore office to monitor the conduct of employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the employees to get too much of freedom and flexibility.

    I worked at TIBCO Software

    Pros

    Great people to work with; interesting/cutting edge project and technology; remarkably free of the normal organizational politics

    Cons

    In our division, having IT issues dictated by the parent organization was less than ideal. Much of the test and lab environment is too diverse without adequate documentation or organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    good luck paying off the loans incurred in the takeover. Try to make production schedules be more reflective of reality.

    Pros

    Dynamic, cutting edge technology and a good group of people who work very hard and trying to make a difference in the world.

    Cons

    A lot of uncertainty right now, but the company is going to emerge as a much stronger, focused organization in 6 months time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what the customer wants and what the company does well. Narrow product stack and regain profit margins.
