    Great company to work for

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

    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

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

    Great place to work

    Consultant (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    ProsGood Culture, Work-Life Balance, Autonomy, Cutting Edge technologies and Products, Opportunity to learn and excel.

    ConsVariable Pay (especially if you work for services group), Change in Culture, Bad people management, you tend to get stuck if you are at the wrong project, Less motivation and empowerment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCulture has been the important trademark for TIBCO, don't induce policies affecting our Core Culture and Values.

    Continue to do what we have doing all these years.

    Good place to work at

    Associate Consultant (Current Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsPerhaps one of the most employee friendly companies in India. There are very less bureaucracy and micromanagement isn't really a part of their culture.

    ConsLousy annual salary hikes unless there is a promotion. Even the best performers end up not getting more than 7%.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't change the culture in the name of cost cutting or growing strength. Your culture is your biggest strength and you should keep holding on it.

    Great company to work for, but not fast enough to adapt to new industry culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Palo Alto, CA (US)

    ProsBig clients including many fortune 500 corporations, and great in-depth set of products. The job location is great, awful on-site cafe, flexibility to work from home, against traffic on my commute.

    ConsNot fast enough to change the culture from enterprise sales based model, to cloud self-service based model that is required in today's date and time. Salary levels have dropped in comparison to industry, minimal bonus and pay raise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdopt cloud based culture fast enough. Review salary levels specially at below executive level jobs.

    Good company

    Senior Account Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsAutonomy, smart people, work-life balance.

    ConsIn team selling opportunities, they leave it to the reps to determine the comp split. Double comp would encourage for team selling and higher ACV and TCVs

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be afraid of associates and managers that are not "yes' people. Listen and consider those that challenge the status quo.

    Double compensate on deals where multiple reps are team selling. Many opportunities are lost because this provision is not in place.
