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

    Pros

    Used to be a nice place to work, some interesting challenges....

    Cons

    After Vista Private Equity acquisition the company is no longer a good place to work. They fired hundreds of people after the acquisition. There is no clear strategy behind this decision, Vista just needed to reduce costs in order to pay for the huge amount of debt it incurred as result of the acquisition. There is also no clear strategy behind the product roadmap and the management team, which are ultimately responsible for the TIBCO failure, got promoted along the way.

    I wouldn't advise buying TIBCO products as some of them might just disappear as Vista will decommission products that are not interesting for them.

    In summary, Vista PE will make a lot of money and kill a great company along the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late for advice. They already messed up big time.

    Pros

    not sure there are any. TIBCO lost the ability to innovate years back and the stock started to talk. was acquired by a private firm who laid off a tom of people. focus is on getting as much cash as possible out without investing in people or products.

    Cons

    lack of leadership, poor compensation, low communication, constant threat of layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you are doing, take the money and run.

    I worked at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked in TIBCO India office from 2010 to 2015....
    Good training ground for Junior employees, update skills for 2-5 years and switch to other company which provides better opportunities, professional senior management, better HR policies.

    Cons

    Senior management CAN'T be relied on, they are mainly from technical background, if things don't work at business level, innocent employees are fired ruthlessly without proper compensation.

    Co. lacks cross functional strategy and management. Those who can write code and design code are given far more importance than any other role in company....more and more code doesn't lead to business success but such architects and developers want to ensure they get all visibility and benefits, so they keep doing it over years.

    HR processes are very reactive. Because Senior management doesn't consider HR as strategic competitive advantage...HR team is allowed to do only admin. work, no authority to decide pay, promotions.
    Career planning and Performance management doesn't exists. Those who can create dependencies, get all benefits. e.g. Developers and Architects.

    Some people perceive that CEO/CXO busy in hobbies and admin, clearical work than focus on strategic activities and dedicated execution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice...Good co. is sold....

    TIBCO Software is the leading independent provider of infrastructure software creating event-enabled enterprises to use on-premise or as part of cloud computing environments.
    Since it is a product based company, Employee growth is proportional to the organization growth.

    Cons

    Nothing much as of now.
