ProsOpen culture, smart people to work with. Good plans for growth for techie. Good work life balance. Decent compensation. Flexible in terms of working hours, work from home. Free snacks. Ping Pong and other recreational activities available.

Excellent People, Great Products

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time

ProsEveryone is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. You have the opportunity here to work on very big and interesting solutions. The company is big enough to compete with anybody, but small enough that it is possible to move quicker and be more responsive to customers. Also, best corporate cafeteria ever!

ConsDevelopment teams are geographically dispersed, often making it difficult to coordinate across time zones. Engineering is under-staffed relative to the product goals set forth.

TIBCO is a great company to work for!

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Brussels (Belgium)

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

Pros- TIBCO has really cool and fantastic products, so for technical people who want to learn and grow, it's a great place to be with a lot of opportunities.
- People in TIBCO are very skilled and share their knowledge, which again helps other people grow and learn.
- In Europe teams are smaller, which makes it easy to get a good working relationship with colleagues and management.
- The management structure is pretty flat which makes direct communication with management possible.
- Strong sense of independence among employees. You manage your own work and schedule as much as possible.
- Great events and training opportunities.

Cons- Some flexibility is required in terms of work location as you need to be on client site.
- Travel can be required (but can be fun as well so in my opinion not always negative - this depends on your own preference).

Advice to Senior Management- Try and find a way to compensate the inconveniences of travel for work. Many other companies have interesting arrangements for this.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I work as Sr Manager in Quality department...

Senior Manager QA (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA (US)

I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThis place used to be very good for working and for trying new ideas since there was a time when TIBCO was doing new things and was investing in right direction....

ConsTIBCO has zero accountability at higher management...you can fail number of times and there is no impact to your package or your promotions...TIBCO has very regular salary, it's hard to expect other benefits such as RSU, Stock since you get very less of stocks, RSU and stock price is falling...culture is good but it's not thriving place to build your career ....

Advice to Senior ManagementValue people and pay them right...Get right people for right job...don't look for leaders within the company always...please make higher management responsible for their outcome...just meeting quarters should not be goal...goal should be to show a growth potential...very ordinary salary and no great potential is not going to take this company long way...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

TIbco is not only the place to work ..

Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
Pune (India)

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

Pros1. None. I did not find anything.

Cons1. Very less onsite opportunities. They send onsite senior managers only where it is not required.
2. Do not have Group Anti Corruption Law Policies. Group of some idiots and unprofessional peoples can tarnish companies image.
3. Do not have sexual harassment policies. And HR is puppet show of managers.
4. Not recommended place for Experienced peoples.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is huge world outside tibco. Pull of some senior older managers and hire new talent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
