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. Highly relevant technology with social, mobile, loyalty, predictive analytics, and integration platform. The place to be if you are driven and want to keep raising the bar.

ConsIf you are looking for a steady state job environment, this is not the place as the pace is high and you will feel like you are getting left behind.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring the smartest kids around the world.

There is never a dull moment.

Principal Consultant (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

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

ProsThe company seeks to recruit extremely intelligent, highly motivated team members and it shows. When you work with such talented people it forces you to raise your own standards for excellence.

ConsNot for those who do not like to travel. Also there is a lot of different software to learn which requires continuous training and study.

One of the greatest companies to work for

Senior Director (Current Employee)

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

ProsCulture:
- Customer focus (everybody in the organisation is tasked to help TIBCO customers succeed)
- Innovation (always ahead of the competition)
- Flexibility
- Outside the box thinking
- Sales attitude (everybody supports you in winning your deals)
- Performance (not a place to work for "Non-performers" (B, C-Players)

ConsAs the so called "1 Billion dollar Start-up" TIBCO sometimes lacks some structure in certain areas

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on giving people the freedom to be successful in their own way

Enjoyable and a great experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsKnowledgeable and extremely smart people. Great culture, people are always willing to help, the benefits are a great plus.

ConsTIBCO is not for someone who would want to coast to get by, you are encouraged and expected to go above and beyond. Also internal processes can slow you down, however that is extremely minor in my opinion and any large organization has these issues.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep chugging along and remain focused.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
