    Pros

    not sure there are any. TIBCO lost the ability to innovate years back and the stock started to talk. was acquired by a private firm who laid off a tom of people. focus is on getting as much cash as possible out without investing in people or products.

    Cons

    lack of leadership, poor compensation, low communication, constant threat of layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you are doing, take the money and run.

    Former Employee - Software Developer in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked in TIBCO India office from 2010 to 2015....
    Good training ground for Junior employees, update skills for 2-5 years and switch to other company which provides better opportunities, professional senior management, better HR policies.

    Cons

    Senior management CAN'T be relied on, they are mainly from technical background, if things don't work at business level, innocent employees are fired ruthlessly without proper compensation.

    Co. lacks cross functional strategy and management. Those who can write code and design code are given far more importance than any other role in company....more and more code doesn't lead to business success but such architects and developers want to ensure they get all visibility and benefits, so they keep doing it over years.

    HR processes are very reactive. Because Senior management doesn't consider HR as strategic competitive advantage...HR team is allowed to do only admin. work, no authority to decide pay, promotions.
    Career planning and Performance management doesn't exists. Those who can create dependencies, get all benefits. e.g. Developers and Architects.

    Some people perceive that CEO/CXO busy in hobbies and admin, clearical work than focus on strategic activities and dedicated execution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice...Good co. is sold....

    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 worked at TIBCO Software

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing. Salary is decent. Qualified colleagues are true. Technology is amazing. Spotfire is truly amazing.

    Cons

    Marketing is null. Marketing has no money. No attention towards West Coast reps. No Partner challenge. Full of hot air with no results. High management is a complete joke. Its embarrassing how they use one of the best running backs of all time as a puppet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To mid management, leave and run as fast as you can. Upper-Tier Management are so out of touch it is so incredibly sad. TIBCO since, 1985? Really?!?! And I haven't seen one commercial, and branding is -10 out of 1 through 10. And stop "using" a former 49er as your client puppet. You might want to get somebody more relevant because using him is just old, obvious, embarrassing, and just plain weird.
