Good people wanting to do good things

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsExciting 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify a number of internal processes to make things happen quicker

Everyday I learn of a new application of TIBCO solutions to solve today's problems. And it's always awe-inspiring.

Senior Manager, Demand Generation (Current Employee)
Portsmouth, South East England, England

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

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep moving, keep listening to staff and continue to be open to new ideas.

Great company to work for

Senior Sales Executive (Current Employee)
City of London, England

I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than a year

ProsProgressive 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

ConsPossible 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 Senior ManagementMarketing 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
