Of all the places I've worked in this is the place I'd call home.

Director (Current Employee)

I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time for more than 8 years

ProsSpirit of innovation, freedom to experiment, support to help you find your niche and work to your strengths -- these are what are great here. Titles and designations don't count for much here as much as peer recognition does. You can try different roles and you will get the support you want. Of course, it pays to maintain relationships and build your network if you want to try new opportunities.

ConsIt's tough for someone starting their career here since there is very little formal mentorship. You are thrown into the deep end of the pool and you could turn into a great swimmer or drown. But worse, you could learn a bad technique that will stick with you for life.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease focus and pay more attention to the people inside. We make great software, and there are several people who are happy and self-driven. That doesn't mean that we shouldn't do more formal TLC or aspire to be a "great place to work".

I had a good experience working at Tibco

Principal Engineer (Former Employee)
Pune

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

ProsThe company has a lot of interesting products. It also has a good reputation and worldwide presence. It also has a lot of highly technical people.

ConsThe product I was working on was a solution built by the professional services being later productised. The solution needed a lot of re-engineering but the pace of moving to newer technologies seemed to be slow.
