Company Culture

The culture here appears to be a relaxed one at first blush. There are plenty of perks, and fun things here. Unfortunately that covers up a lot of issues with the culture here. This company is very much a "throw you into it and see if you swim" type place, with little training or direction from management.

Support from management

Management support here is not good at all. Managers expect a very short learning curve, and also tend to expect employees to have psychic powers and know just what they want. When you don't deliver it, get ready for a tongue-lashing.

Teamwork

Team members do a great job of working together and getting things done. This rating is a three because management does such an awful job of building the team and managing it.

Internal Communication

Communication here is terrible. Managers expect employees to know things without being told, and management never really lays out what it wants.

Career Development

People in positions of power here are generally those who have worked their way up from lower positions. That's not always a good thing. Some of these folks have no business managing anyone else.

Office / Work Environment

Again, a lot of glad-handing, out-for-oneself type of environment here from management.

Inclusive / Diverse

The workforce in this company is very diverse. Makes it all the more shocking that management acts the way they do.

Suggestions for improvement

  • New management with new ideas. Too much of management is stuck in the past.

What I like about the company

Great benefits and perks.

What I dislike about the company

The management attitude here is terrible. Most managers see their employees as completely disposable and not worth the effort to properly train and mentor.

Suggestions for improvement

What I like about the company

I worked at TIBCO Software full-time for many years, and it was a joy to work there.
The company has improved by leaps and bounds - its grown, yet retained it startup culture. Systems, data, marketing, and sales have become incredibly strategic under re-focused leadership.

TIBCO has made intelligent product acquisitions and is headed in the right direction. Leadership has focused a lot on hiring young people with high potential to succeed, which is one of the main reasons for the turn-around.
This is a great mid-sized company to work for and I'd recommend it for anyone fresh out of college as well as seasoned professionals.

What I dislike about the company

Some senior team members (but no higher than manager level) are rewarded based on years rather than skill.
