    Culture has been the important trademark for TIBCO, don't induce policies affecting our Core Culture and Values.

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

    Pros

    Perhaps one of the most employee friendly companies in India. There are very less bureaucracy and micromanagement isn't really a part of their culture.

    Cons

    Lousy annual salary hikes unless there is a promotion. Even the best performers end up not getting more than 7%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change the culture in the name of cost cutting or growing strength. Your culture is your biggest strength and you should keep holding on it.

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

    Pros

    Big clients including many fortune 500 corporations, and great in-depth set of products. The job location is great, awful on-site cafe, flexibility to work from home, against traffic on my commute.

    Cons

    Not fast enough to change the culture from enterprise sales based model, to cloud self-service based model that is required in today's date and time. Salary levels have dropped in comparison to industry, minimal bonus and pay raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt cloud based culture fast enough. Review salary levels specially at below executive level jobs.

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

    Pros

    Autonomy, smart people, work-life balance.

    Cons

    In team selling opportunities, they leave it to the reps to determine the comp split. Double comp would encourage for team selling and higher ACV and TCVs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid of associates and managers that are not "yes' people. Listen and consider those that challenge the status quo.

    Double compensate on deals where multiple reps are team selling. Many opportunities are lost because this provision is not in place.
