The worst company to work for bar none!!

Senior Account Executive (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

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

ProsProduct Set is great if you are looking for a technical job this could be for you or if you are related to the senior management

ConsSeniors Sales Management has no clue
Employees are treated with disrespect , I have been working for 20+ years no company remotely comes close to how mismanaged this organization is
Mid management is breaking every role possible , law suites are piling up
Bullying is rampant and part of the culture
Sales compensation is never paid. for example if you close a deal and you get X amount of commission they will offer you 50% of what you have earned and a couple of new accounts no recourse .

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease stop toying with peoples careers , get you act together, move focus from buying basketball teams to your own organization and its share holders . If you cant change that please sell the company !!
Get a decent HR division

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

LogLogic Division - WATCH OUT

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA (US)

I worked at TIBCO Software full-time

ProsFree snacks and other than that I can't think of anything else that is good.

ConsLogLogic division has too many politics, favors, and traps that you have to be part of them or you will be gone sooner or later. Are you in good shape if your manager doesn't answer your email and doesn't discuss things go wrong when you seek him for advice? Not sure why he is hired to be a manager. I don't want to blame Tibco but they can't just ignore it. Send your management people to classes that teach them how to manage people the right way. HR would say they will listen and NOTHING is being done. If you want to work for a Chinese communist style management, then join this division. I have enough of it and I feel sick to my stomach and want to throw up when I even think about what I've been through.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou know what you need to do.

Not a long term company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

Prossmart engineers and great porducts

ConsManagement is terrible. They are sitting out their time witing tio collect their money. When the company does well, they get paid large bonuses. When the company does not do well, they still get paid large bonuses while the rest of the staff gets 0

Very pootly rum

Advice to Senior Managementleave and hire some smart, innovative replacements for your self. Start treating employees with respect so that they WANT to stay, and not want to collect a pay check.

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

If you are in Sales RUN!!!

Enterprise Account Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

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

ProsGood for technical people to learn and find a better company

ConsThis is a grossly mismanaged organization that will destroy your career , You wont make any money even if you sell as they will not pay you commissions, The will offer you a high OTE and a great compensation plan but will not recognize your sales or call your account a house account that disqualify you for payment no policy arbitrary decisions . This is not a place for coin operated sales people only people who are happy on the base salary and being your managers slaves and the Sales leadership has absolutely no sales management experience and with that leadership they want to compete with SAP, IBM and Oracle

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease get your act together, Get a decent HR ..treat your employees with respect and dignity

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