    Ok products but management needs to progress from the early 90's. Too much internal conflict.

    Pros

    - Pockets of innovation and generally a good vision
    - Solid sales force
    - Well funded with good cash flow
    - Very mature accounting and finance function
    - Some very good customers due to the depth and breadth of its portfolio and lack of similar sized independent rivals
    - Good place to start your career as there are lots of sideways progressions as long as it was not into management

    Cons

    - An anti-collaborative environment that encouraged conflict between regions, product groups and sales forces that belonged to each. Senior management was against matrix sales teams and double compensation thus causing a lot of time establishing who owned an international account or which product group should get the biggest split of large deals. The effects flowed down to the lower level employees.
    - Guru centric management style and very much like a family-oriented culture. i.e. if you did as was asked for you by the CEO or his small circle or generals, you will end up getting favours and progress. A very top heavy management. i.e. leaving very few career progression opportunities for non-US employees. Furthermore, real authority was never really given to the lower level mangers and business decisions were always made by a very few people and US centric views of the world.
    - No transparent nor peer based form of career management or performance feedback tied to base salary increases. This process was ah-hoc. No discussion or committee based ratings were taken into account. (Non-sales people)

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to be less about the ego or wealth of a very few people and more about the customers, products and employees. The company seems to be a vehicle for the founders/management to justify their lavish lifestyle.

    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 Management

    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

    Pros

    The technologies, and the great minds that designed them, are still around after the acquisition. The acquisition and changes in engineering management have brought a welcome focus. One of TIBCO's known strength, its field forces, is motivated by the next big things the company is working on right now. And a more recent addition to the TIBCO mix is Marketing. The marketing team has been asked by Vista and the top executives to build a leading marketing organization. This is currently at play and quite interesting to be involved in. Data-driven decisions, collaboration and processes, constant testing and benchmarking are becoming the rule at TIBCO Marketing.

    Cons

    The company culture has always been about hard work, and the company has always been rewarding. The transformation at play, and the size of the opportunity, requires everyone to be 100% committed. Some will love it, some will not.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on engaging with customers. Keep on communicating with employees. Keep on investing in Marketing. Keep on adding structure and processes to realize the company and its assets (people and technology) company.
