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

    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

    Cons

    Have HR willing to work for Employees, not the Company
    Train management team to know how to both people manage and manage themselves.
