    I have been working at BMC Software full-time (more than 10 years)


    One of the great things about working at BMC is the people. Like any other workplace you have the mixture of personalities, but all in all everyone supports one another. I have found that you can make time for your family and yourself and not be treated as a slacker. Health benefits are good unless you are unable to take advantage of the HSA plan. The office has gone through a remodel and everyone that does not work from home still has an office rather than a cube farm. Training is recommended and supported as long as it does not interfere with your work and it doesn't cost BMC any additional dollars.


    The QA organization has lost a number of people in the last year due to reductions and attrition. Management seems to think that they can just shuffle people around to take up the slack without understanding that the skill set needed to understand how to test a product thoroughly does not always easily translate to another product. Management talks about the greying of the R&D organization and how they need to address it without recognizing the knowledge they are losing because they are not acting fast enough for those retiring to pass that knowledge on. Management is also aware of the many single points of failure (staff that provides critical functions with no backup) yet make no obvious effort to address them. There is no career development in the R&D organization. Promotions are few and far between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BMC management is responsible for creating an environment that drove a number of developers and QAs to find work elsewhere. Instead of assuming they were ungrateful employees, make an effort to understand why they left and why they were not happy about leaving. The only way to improve things is to accept responsibility for that work environment and addressing the issues and concerns that came out of the exit interviews.
