    With the Vista Partner buyout, company is becoming unstable, and is going through reorgs.

    I worked at TIBCO Software

    Pros

    TIBCO is surviving all these onslaught of new technologies (Cloud Computing, Social Networking, BI, etc) w/ the new and upcoming companies such as Tableau, Splunk, etc, but it needs to reinvent itself to stay in the competition.

    Cons

    Unstable w/ the buyout. Morale is low. No bonus. People are leaving voluntarily/involuntarily. I hope that Vista Partner can figure it out soon to stabilize the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, please do your job with swift and soon. I worked for TIBCO for a long time and feel that it should survive/thrive w/ the right management.

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Spotfire and the Analytics division are very solid and great technologies.

    Cons

    All the great people are leaving or have left. Mgmt has no clue and the people put in place will have a tough time righting this sinking ship. It was terrible when the Senior Mgmt from Palo Alto were running this place into the ground and showing how to NOT work together and continue the infighting that defined this company. The best thing that happened to them was Vista...the worse thing was Vista not being smart enough to get rid of the same Mgmt responsible for the mess that is Tibco. All the good people were smart enough to leave already and anyone who joins now must be crazy or can't get a job anywhere else. The smartest thing they could do now is sell off the old technology to someone else and focus on Analytics which is their only hope!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vista needs to put some boots on the ground to see what is really goes on and make some swift changes...

    Pros

    You will be exposed to lots of technologies. Good place to get your feet wet. 401K with matching. Good health benefits.

    Cons

    There is no guide or training to get started with TIBCO Software. Sink or swim. There used to be a lot of good people there. Most are gone. Recently aquired by Vista Equity, the board left 100M on the table in a spreadsheet error. Thanks guys! Management will tell you in no uncertain terms that the days of raises are over and that you can make more money working for other customers. Guess what, they are right! They will tell you to stay to be with the best techology. That used to be true. However, that is no longer the case. Other companies have caught up. Aquisitions are never fully integrated into the full technology stack. There is never enough engineering to get things done to stay competitive and products wither. The most unprofessional head of sales I have ever encountered, has the mouth of a gutter rat. Company "pep talks" are demeaning and demoralizing. Expect to sell in a culture of fear. If you decide to join TIBCO as a SC, make sure you get placed with a successful account executive and interview the AE before you come on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your people on the streets better. Beef up engineering. Get rid of the clown who swears like a gutter rat. You know who I'm talking about. Stop rolling out products that aren't fully functional.

    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.

    Pros

    Great, Smart and hardworking people. The field team works well together. Interesting and cutting edge technology to work on. A lot of pressure but a lot of fun

    Cons

    Over the last couple of years Company seems to have last it's way.
    A lot of mismanagement by the executives put the company in a place where they had to sell out to venture capital firm Vista.

    The layoffs and cost cutting have begun; morale is bad and getting worse.
    I not sure what the future holds for us

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    to late they are gone
    current management just the slave of the Equity Fund.

    I worked at TIBCO Software

    Pros

    TIBCO's standard middleware products are solid and customer satisfaction is high, especially on support. Compensation for sales is competitive for the industry. Cooperation between sales and technical support and engineering is high.

    Cons

    Very high turnover in all areas of the organization - especially sales. Most of the executives and senior management have left following the recent privatization from VISTA Equity Partners. From a sales perspective, very short runway to ramp-up and most of the new hires are required to spin their rolodex for new business. TIBCO still has yet to offer credible cloud (SaaS, iPaas & Paas), or a mobile solution, and will need to completely reinvent invent itself if they are to survive against new market entrants. Spotfire analytics not competitive against Tableau, Qlick or Microstrategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For a company with the history that TIBCO has, they will need to stop operating as a start-up with knee-jerk reactions to decision making on every situation that occurs, and start to operate as a modern organization with effective policies and procedures. Need a solid execution and go-to market strategy for all product lines.

    Pros

    TIBCO has some cool technologies and some nice product.

    Cons

    Mgmt went on a spending spree a few years ago and purchased a hodge-podge of companies without a clear plan. There doesn't seem to be a company-wide vision. When I worked there at least 5 separate groups were working on a "cloud solution" without any coordination between them. Instead of leveraging common tools/knowledge they each struggled individually (as though in competition) and none succeeded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop that stupid "have fun!" tag line and just focus on running the company. You have so many smart people - start using them to develop products people actually WANT and not just the new "hot thing" just for the sake of sounding cool! And never, ever again make a video of senior company officials SINGING. I still relive that horror occasionally :-).

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot. SInce TIBCO has its own middleware software, sky is the limit for you to learn the technology and take education classes.
    There is always some interesting project going on. People are helpful and are ready to explain to you what they are doing.

    Cons

    Teams are pretty lean and work culture is demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is little help from management for career growth; one has to find ones own ways.
