    Pros

    Interesting collection of technologies - in danger of becoming obsolete

    Cons

    Leadership is a term that doesn't apply here. It's all about senior managers looking out for themselves and their drinking buddies

    Terrible internal systems and processes...

    Success depends more on who you know rather than what you do...

    Comp plans are notoriously late in being approved. My 2014 plan came in the end of October ... the FY ends 30 November

    The company has no cloud strategy or product base

    Keep the 'TIBCO Culture' alive even more so now that it has been acquired by Vista.

    Pros

    There is a small handful of staff that will act as real colleagues and collaborate.

    Cons

    Terrible management, that churns and burns staff. It is an employee unfriendly company and management is encourage to blame staff for short comings. Way too many mediocre people in management for too long and they are encouraged to abuse and fire staff. In essence, A CEO who thinks he is a basketball expert (he is not) with chaotic, incoherent product strategies and chaotic inconsistent acquisition logic. A poor reactive company. Avoid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    N/A they wouldn't listen let alone understand. Historically, this has always been a troubled company with massive discontent among the divisions.

    Pros

    Company is supportive for those who want to work on international assignments or movement within other departments within the organization.
    Good 401k match, commuter check subsidy of $100 per month. Multiple offices across the globe so work is handed over to different regions, very good model for 24x7 kind of work.

    Cons

    Bonus varies as per company performance. No official work from home policy. Can do better with employee training and career/professional development.
