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

    Pros

    Best culture.
    Flexible timings. You just don't have to go to office most of the times.
    High configuration laptop ( like Mac book pro or Windows), Iphone or Samsung galaxy grand 2 with International SIM card, Data card dongle, Corporate Credit Card.
    Office in Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad.
    Awesome pay and employee benefits.

    Cons

    Please don't join TIBBR or TIBCO Engage or TIBCO Loyality labs. They just fired about about 100-400 employees around the globe from these departments.
    Very bad and non helpful colleagues.
    Too much flexibility in Bangalore office and employees come drunk and work during lunch time.
    No HR in Bangalore office to monitor the conduct of employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the employees to get too much of freedom and flexibility.

    Pros

    You get to learn about a new technology in market which is promising. Salary is very good for freshers and there are onsite opportunities also.

    No cons as such. Everything is good. But if you are someone who wants to learn more then I would suggest to join a startup.

    I have been working at TIBCO Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Honestly, can't think of one, except if you're looking for a place to settle down, and have no interest in work at all. The initial pay is too good (for the quality of people they hire) and work culture is relaxed. Work from home and off time is generally allowed.

    Cons

    Generally awful people. Lot of B and C players in middle management, who are incapable of hiring good people, so the quality is going down all the time.
    Apathetic attitude towards software ( because of 1st point).
    No progress on career front. No objectivity in appraisal process, people-pleasing and boot licking rules over meritocracy. Perhaps the only company where mediocrity is celebrated.
    Lack of transparency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introduce stack ranking.
    Trim the middle management fat.
    Promote people from within.
    Hire better people, pay them better. That's the only way to delivering good results (not paying less, and cost cutting which is short-term vision)
    Have more all hands, take in more questions from employees.

    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....

    Pros

    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.

    The work culture is brilliant. Almost everyone is reachable. Innovation and new concepts are encouraged and well appreciated.

    I guess company is sort of going from a rough patch from past 2 years, there was very limited scope of growth.
