Good company to work

Technical Architect (Current Employee)
Pune (India)

I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 5 years

ProsOpen culture, smart people to work with. Good plans for growth for techie. Good work life balance. Decent compensation. Flexible in terms of working hours, work from home. Free snacks. Ping Pong and other recreational activities available.

ConsFocus on delivering quality has reduced a little over time.

Advice to Senior ManagementPresently the hiring policy is adhoc. Need to have stricter criteria before hiring individuals to ensure product deliverables meet quality standards that can enable it to stay ahead of the competiton.

Excellent People, Great Products

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time

ProsEveryone is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. You have the opportunity here to work on very big and interesting solutions. The company is big enough to compete with anybody, but small enough that it is possible to move quicker and be more responsive to customers. Also, best corporate cafeteria ever!

ConsDevelopment teams are geographically dispersed, often making it difficult to coordinate across time zones. Engineering is under-staffed relative to the product goals set forth.

TIBCO is a great company to work for!

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Brussels (Belgium)

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

Pros- TIBCO has really cool and fantastic products, so for technical people who want to learn and grow, it's a great place to be with a lot of opportunities.
- People in TIBCO are very skilled and share their knowledge, which again helps other people grow and learn.
- In Europe teams are smaller, which makes it easy to get a good working relationship with colleagues and management.
- The management structure is pretty flat which makes direct communication with management possible.
- Strong sense of independence among employees. You manage your own work and schedule as much as possible.
- Great events and training opportunities.

Cons- Some flexibility is required in terms of work location as you need to be on client site.
- Travel can be required (but can be fun as well so in my opinion not always negative - this depends on your own preference).

Advice to Senior Management- Try and find a way to compensate the inconveniences of travel for work. Many other companies have interesting arrangements for this.

Mostly excellent managers who have given me a fantastic amount of leeway to do my job the way I see fit.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 10 years

ProsExcellent manager. Have been able to move to different roles over a long time at the company. Company focus on the customer has led us to continue to enlarge the business over many years.

ConsDepartmental silos, and even silos within departments hinder opportunities for even greater success. Management knows this is an issue, but it isn't a top priority, so it usually takes someone with a lot of motivation to overcome what should be a simple problem.

Advice to Senior ManagementBuild a stronger culture for cooperating and innovating across different organizational silos.

TIBCO has been a great career, I have learned things I never thought I would use in my work history.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 8 years

ProsTIBCO offers the opportunity to learn new technology and leverage that into helping our clients better use our products. There are challenges every day, it is never boring and always exciting. The benefits are second to none. Time off, and health benefits are both great and cost effective with the available choices.

ConsThere is a lot to learn, and in a short time to better perform the various duties assigned to us. Training can be hard to come by, it is best learned on the fly as the SW changes rapidly. Annual reviews and raises could be better to compensate for the hard work everyone puts in to keep our clients happy with our products.
