    TIbco is not only the place to work ..

    Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) Pune

    Pros1. None. I did not find anything.

    Cons1. Very less onsite opportunities. They send onsite senior managers only where it is not required.
    2. Do not have Group Anti Corruption Law Policies. Group of some idiots and unprofessional peoples can tarnish companies image.
    3. Do not have sexual harassment policies. And HR is puppet show of managers.
    4. Not recommended place for Experienced peoples.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is huge world outside tibco. Pull of some senior older managers and hire new talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I work as Sr Manager in Quality department...

    Senior Manager QA (Current Employee) Palo Alto, CA (US)

    ProsThis place used to be very good for working and for trying new ideas since there was a time when TIBCO was doing new things and was investing in right direction....

    ConsTIBCO has zero accountability at higher management...you can fail number of times and there is no impact to your package or your promotions...TIBCO has very regular salary, it's hard to expect other benefits such as RSU, Stock since you get very less of stocks, RSU and stock price is falling...culture is good but it's not thriving place to build your career ....

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue people and pay them right...Get right people for right job...don't look for leaders within the company always...please make higher management responsible for their outcome...just meeting quarters should not be goal...goal should be to show a growth potential...very ordinary salary and no great potential is not going to take this company long way...

    They know technology, but not how to apply it.

    Software Architect (Former Employee) Palo Alto, CA (US)

    ProsGreat technology, smart employees, good opportunities for cross-training.

    ConsPoor work-life balance. Software sales is the bottom line. Management knows technology but not how to manage. No opportunity for advancement. Must know the products that make the sales (BW, EMS) to stay on client engagements.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider employees work-life balance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Some Good people, no compassion left

    Senior Solutions Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat mix of products. They have a dedicated, talented pool of people to work with. With the product set they've acquired, they can eventually solve almost any problem.

    ConsWith so many products, it's hard to find the 'right' way to solve a problem. The company has morphed into a hard line numbers driven company where all that matters is EPS. There once was a time where you didn't have to fool yourself into thinking that the company cared about you or your career, that time was over a long time ago.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognition, mentoring, promote from within. Embrace the decentralization, and trust employees that don't work at the mother ship.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow some respect

    Disappointing

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat products and moving beyond middleware into analytics and social.

    ConsDysfunctional executive management, limited/poor marketing, too many products which confuse the markets, analysts and salesmen. Appalling process inefficiencies and disconnected back office systems.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCull / consolidate products and simplify marketing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
