Solid Company - Well Managed

Principal Product Manager (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at BMC Software full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBMC has great products, great customer focus, and a lean organization. Basically well managed with smart people.

ConsKind of a boring industry and a tough business - too heavy on mainframe culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit squeezing the employees and ensure there is room to advance.

It was a great ride while it lasted

Client Services (Current Employee)

I have been working at BMC Software full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood people to work with. Lower management seems to care about the empoyees

ConsMiddle Management doesn't appear to know what they are doing. However, this could change now that BMC has gone private. There is risk staying as there a probably drastic changes coming over the next 6-12 months.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore communication and try to build trust with the employees. The uncertainty is causing a brain drain.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Things have changed.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at BMC Software full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExcellent work/life balance. Had the pleasure of working for a few very strong, intelligent and supportive managers. Colleagues in general are a pleasure to work with; very laid back and good spirited set of people.

ConsManagement (now) seems out of sync with the "little people." Very few opportunities for advancement. Any requisitions that come available are usually earmarked with a resource and the interview process is just a formality. A lot of big ideas and no actions to bring those ideas to fruition. The overall environment is beginning to seem stagnant and morale is steadily dropping.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake better hiring decisions when it comes to management. For those currently in management - seriously reevaluate their effectiveness and consider replacing them with forward thinking, innovative people. Give your internals a chance to advance and shine - and reward them when they do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
