    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.

    Pros

    Scope for growth, Answers to any questions are only a finger tip away (TIbbr)

    Cons

    Annual reviews...even if you get a high score that might not be reflected in your pay. Hard work can now and again be overlooked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don’t miss the superstars of tomorrow, identify who they are and nurture them...do not lose them

    Pros

    Exposure to some of the greatest solutions available and surrounding yourself with entrepreneurial thinking people. Every day is a school day!

    Cons

    The TIBCO brand isn't as well known as the likes of IBM, so the education aspect is a continual effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving, keep listening to staff and continue to be open to new ideas.

    Pros

    Exciting software and messaging where a lot of responsibility is put on you to deliver interesting solutions. Focus is on finding solutions to difficult problems and always looking at new / better ways to solve issues, rather than a one size fits all approach to every customer.

    Cons

    Can take a long time for approvals or changes to happen, mainly due to legal team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify a number of internal processes to make things happen quicker

    Pros

    Good level of support from higher management, good money, great products & great ideas and great people

    Cons

    Depending which product division you represent, you might find yourself representing a relatively new product to the market where your goals can be extremely hard to obtain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue listening to your employees giving them the support that they need, that is the way forward towards success.

    Pros

    Progressive company with a management ethos that you are good as your track record says, not your last sale. Mature leadership with truly cutting edge market solutions. Great growth potential

    Cons

    Possible aquisition target by an Oracle. Top level management do tend to live in an ivory tower, Marketing is poor and inside sales is worse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing is not event management. Maketing is brand leadership, working on the investor community, having a client reference program. Re-align Inside Sales with Sales, not reporting to marketing
