Below market compensation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsVariety of Technology to work on.
Cafe and company campus is quite nice.

ConsCompensation is way below the market rate and Management is not doing much to retain the quality resources due to these below market compensation.

Upper Management is not keen on addressing/fixing problems which employees are spotting left, right and central.

Technology stack is too wide (variety), but management is not able to generate constant revenue stream out of it, and hence the situation where unpleasant cost-cutting decisions are been pushed to employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes, act on the feedbacks. It is easy to spot, and fixable (only if you have that mindset)

Do remember that - Engineering is the core for a technology company, and not the sales or support. And so compensate them accordingly. No brainer !!!

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

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.

If you want to solve problems others cannot, this is the place to be!

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA (US)

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

ProsVery innovative and customer focused culture. Career mobility across functions and geographies even if you haven't done the job before, but you need to show the initiative.
