    Management turned a blind eye to issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    React quicker to issues. Eliminate the road block people sooner instead of after people start leaving because of them.

    IT network Team does not communicate among the team, Less RSUs compared to industry. I am not recommending only for this group, all other groups are very good from what I heard and interacted.

    Leadership should have more skip level meetings, have open discussions.

    Former Employee - Sales Executive in Maidenhead, England (UK)

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great sales people come and go, great atmosphere at conferences and most of the time in the office. Good technology and some very smart technologists. I really liked the CEO Vivek, super smart guy.

    Cons

    Quarterly targets a constant challenge, often senior sales VP's would pull rank and call the client directly, and under sell the value on a deal that may have taken months to set up. Usual challenge with revenue's across borders, with team work ending in different countries as soon as they thought they might lose revenue to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to change strategies so often, don't panic with bad figures, understand the problem and put in place a strategy to overcome the problem. The sales cycle is 12-24 months, stick by your good sales people and managers it takes a long time to bring in and bring up to speed replacements. It will require a period of sustained stability to bring the numbers back in my humble opinion, buy your team and stick by them, don't just sack them if you don't get the desired result in a few quarters.
