    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Maidenhead, England

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time

    Pros

    - Good pay and bonus (especially if you can sustain lots of overtime)

    Cons

    - Unrealistic work expectations
    - Mostly no, little or merely self-study if training courses are not scheduled soon making it difficult to perform well during the project
    - Projects are under-resourced
    - No growth strategy
    - Products are a hard-sell unless Tibco is the only vendor on the table
    - HR unsupportive to employees
    - Very political environment where, unless careful, you may be blamed for others' mistakes
    - No work-life balance - was expected to do significant overtime including bank holidays (Christmas and New Year) working over 12 - 13 hours a day including weekends for nearly 2 months. Management could not care less about your overtime as long as the delivery is made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Provide appropriate training prior to projects if the individual does not have the necessary knowledge and experience together with some mentoring during the project by someone experienced
    - Resource projects with the necessary employees

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time

    Pros

    Agile, entrepreneurial, flexible. Good software products. If you like working as a stand alone individual then a good environment.

    Cons

    Full of politics across European office, very hierarchical, driven by US decision making. Unfriendly. Unsupportive office environment. Everyone disliked working there. Very little focus on training and development of people. Probably different if you work in the offices in the US though...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on clarifying EMEA management decision making hierarchy and plan to train and develop people.

    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

    Nice Work environment and a great team, motivating supervisors. A really good opportunity to work with nice people and contribute your own share in a nice motivating environment. Right from on-boarding to the organization to getting into the work flow of the team, it is very smooth and comfortable. This is one of the best organizations I worked with, which actually motivates me to look forward to a very long association.

    Cons

    Personally I have not come across any till date.

    Pros

    Although TIBCO is a big player in the market with great products that resonate with our customers we are still small enough to be agile and that really helps against our competition

    Cons

    Cant say I've really come across anything that i would say is negative

    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
