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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Company with Great People

Architect (Current Employee)
Paris (France)

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

Pros* it's a company that is expanding (revenue, staffing, products offering)
* the company mood is good
* there's a lot of amazing people here, really expert in there field and from which you can learn from.
* TIBBR, the internal social network allow you to share key information, get help from people who knows about your issue
* There's a culture of recognition of work being successfully accomplished (mail to N+1,N+2 etc..), award, prices, and $$$, which is really motivating.
* Events are organized for consultant 2 times a years in nice places (each for half of employee) to recieve update on the company strategy, learn new thing and most importantly, make some networking inside the company so that later on, you can get help from the good people, ease opportunities to turn to contracts.
* internal opportunities : I've seen people moving from countries to countries based on their personal needs. You can work at country level, continent level, or worldwide. (the wider you work, the better you are skilled and paid ;)

Conscompany is growing, which comes with somes changes that are not understood as the training not being count anymore as productive time (so get a training will impact negatively your bonus...)...

Consultant are already heavily staffed, so it's difficult to find time to get trained, if it's not productive, it will be hard to have people motivated to be train and certified, and it's strategically bad for the company.

Advice to Senior Management* On a management perspective :
the recent decision to drop training time (10 days/years) being productive, is a very bad signal send to employee and a bad strategic decision, as this will not increase our skills on existing products, new products and get certified ==> and client expect TIBCO employee to be certified.

*On internal processes :
We could use our own solution to ease, make quicker our internal process, which are currently too heavy.

For example, I've seen how education team are working : only by email while there's a lot a process (in a BPM way), everybody receives everyday hundreds of mail that is of no interest to them, but each people have to review each one to be sure not to miss information ==> this is a gigantic waste of time and energy, make the job position a nightmare and not rewarding (I'm reading mail => We could deploy AMXBPM.

+ Having real project internally that use our products could give us a good feedback and increase our product.
