    Pros

    Good technology and smart employees. Nice HQ location, benefits.

    Cons

    Senior and middle management clueless. Many directors and VPs don't even deserve to be first-line managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dump unwanted products and consolidate brand identity around some products. Don't try to be a jack of all trades.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. One of the best products you can get to work on (esp if working in Engineering).
    2. Pretty good technical/smart bunch to interact with day in and day out.
    2. Very open culture.

    Cons

    1. Annul raises can surely be much better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great sales people come and go, great atmosphere at conferences and most of the time in the office. Good technology and some very smart technologists. I really liked the CEO Vivek, super smart guy.

    Cons

    Quarterly targets a constant challenge, often senior sales VP's would pull rank and call the client directly, and under sell the value on a deal that may have taken months to set up. Usual challenge with revenue's across borders, with team work ending in different countries as soon as they thought they might lose revenue to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to change strategies so often, don't panic with bad figures, understand the problem and put in place a strategy to overcome the problem. The sales cycle is 12-24 months, stick by your good sales people and managers it takes a long time to bring in and bring up to speed replacements. It will require a period of sustained stability to bring the numbers back in my humble opinion, buy your team and stick by them, don't just sack them if you don't get the desired result in a few quarters.
