    Pros

    There are a few things very interesting about working for TIBCO. It is a big company ( > $1b in revenue, 4000+ employees) that feels small (everyone knows everyone, very startup-like culture). It is not a company where you look for linear growth, you either remain stagnant or rise high and rise fast. There is a lot of focus on customer satisfaction, and in general the quality of work is very good. It is a place of innovators. Even if your job is "boring", the amount of smart people you come across in your daily lives whether they are in India or Palo Alto is amazing.

    The learning is amazing. Whether it's technology, or management, or political dynamics of a customer, there's lots and lots to learn. What you learn in TIBCO in a year is what you'll learn in other companies in two or three years.

    The best thing about working for TIBCO is that there is a lot of freedom for you to do what you think is right for your customer(s) and for the company. This includes flying in to visit them and solve an escalation, taking an initiative outside the scope of the customer for personal improvement or taking your team out for a good dinner because they work hard for you.

    Cons

    TIBCO is not a paymaster, and money talks in the outside market. Those who work for TIBCO are done chasing big money unless they are very senior management. Those who work for TIBCO are basically motivated by other things: quality of work, self-esteem, ability to innovate - but not money, because money alone as a parameter will fetch better paying jobs.

    TIBCO also has a very Palo Alto feel to it. It brings a good startup culture, but every region is different and sometimes very senior management do not respect cultural and geographical differences, making it less easier to execute in upcoming markets.

    Lastly, TIBCO is a company where two things matter a lot: who you know and who know you. The internal social network is a platform to exhibit your abilities no matter who you are, whether you are an EVP or a developer. But if you keep quiet and do your job day in and day out, you'll get the salary and earn the respect but your growth will be limited. TIBCO wants everyone to be rockstars so if you expect a company to invest heavily in your growth without showing a very high level of self motivation it is not the best company to work for. Having said that, you will be compelled to become a rockstar just by the company you keep.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on retaining good talent. We have the culture and the people to grow new heroes every day, but exceptional talent must be persuaded to remain with us.

    Secondly, do not box innovation to certain departments, everyone must innovate whether they're a CEO or a doorknob.

    Lastly, "overhead" investment in growth and relationship management is inevitable.

    Pros

    Spirit 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.

    Cons

    It'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 ManagementAdvice

    Increase 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".
