    Pros

    The work culture is brilliant. Almost everyone is reachable. Innovation and new concepts are encouraged and well appreciated.

    Cons

    I guess company is sort of going from a rough patch from past 2 years, there was very limited scope of growth.

    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA (US)

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

    Pros

    -Work from home flexibility when needed
    -Casual office
    -Overall okay coworkers

    Cons

    -Disorganization
    -Lack of training for new hires regarding any sort of company policies regarding expenses, po's, approval processes contractors etc (there is a company employee site that has some docs but most are outdated and not detailed)
    -Lack of benefits for MA employees, no gym for example, even though there was a gym in the location's building- Not even a discount was allowed to us- The Palo Alto location however receives that benefit.
    -Extremely unprofessional looking office space- Including-things like thrifted office furniture, a kitchen out in the open from the year 1972 and all outdated scanners, printers etc Very low end for a large organization. No amount of cleaning or organization could make it appear acceptable for customer meetings our outsiders to visit
    -Facilities management never in the office, they have the person split between two locations
    -Very poor communication skills between headquarters and other offices- it's unacceptable when all the offices rely on responses or follow ups/ approvals from the main office- I and countless others had to save emails and documents going back years because of their lack of professionalism to prove they were sent with documents that were needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear communication
    Clearly worded expectations when assigning tasks that are outside the daily expectations
    Follow up with employees on yearly review cycles- it is required by each one of us to file the paper work/ it should be required of you to read and review in order to ensure the employee better understands how they can improve.
    Update your outdated expense systems and approval processes/ make people accountable for their time management in regards to both.
    Finances- the office I worked at frequently did not have their bills paid on time- internet and phone services were cut off more than once which is completely unacceptable for such a large organization.
    Spend less money on hundred dollar lunches and tens of thousands of dollars on "kick offs" and more on a nicer facility, updated equipment from this century and a employee training day, on their first day which includes all the basics.

    Pros

    Work from Home is the greatest benefit and flexible work timings.
    The work culture is good and people are friendly.

    Cons

    Management has changed and things are not as they used to be.
    This company is currently oscillating between service company culture and product company procedures.

    Pros

    Hi,
    I worked as Senior Info Systems Analyst from Pune office. Good people, flexible working hours, very good work life balance, if interested, company would be ready to invest on u to learn new technologies.

    Cons

    For my role, onsite- offshore coordination was not very good. All on your own so until you ask for work no one would give you.

    Keep doing the good job

    Pros

    Interesting collection of technologies - in danger of becoming obsolete

    Cons

    Leadership is a term that doesn't apply here. It's all about senior managers looking out for themselves and their drinking buddies

    Terrible internal systems and processes...

    Success depends more on who you know rather than what you do...

    Comp plans are notoriously late in being approved. My 2014 plan came in the end of October ... the FY ends 30 November

    The company has no cloud strategy or product base
