    Pros

    If you're focused, bright and self-motivated, you can thrive here! Inside Sales is a great way to get your foot in the door at a tech company and then grow into various other roles including sales, software consulting, and customer success. Compared to other local tech inside sales orgs, BMC's work-life balance is more favorable; we're not just a call center. The products are well-known market leaders in most cases, and they're stronger than the competitors even in markets that BMC isn't traditionally known for. The leadership brings culture and insight from other tech-winners like SalesForce, SAS, and Adobe. And the company is big enough to offer great opportunities, but small enough for you to stand out and go earn promotions. Patience, networking and consistent performance is the formula for success here.

    Cons

    None worth lamenting. Come win with us!

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting your people, share successes and guide your teams to grow and win!

    Pros

    Work life balance is achieved here. This doesn't mean that you won't have to 'go the extra mile here', but you will feel appreciated and you will have flexibility. It makes it to where you want to work because you feel like you make a difference.

    Cons

    Sometimes things don't move fast enough, but that is with any company.

    Pros

    BMC offers a great, energetic, exciting environment. Products are very unique, innovative, and market-leading in multiple categories. Analyst firms consistently rank BMC among the top, which makes it much easier for sales teams to sell the product.

    Cons

    Just as many multinational organizations, it can be difficult to coordinate schedules for meetings.

    Pros

    BMC, since going private in 2013, has completly transformed the company into a fast-paced, high-energy environment. There have been a bunch of Industry best executives that recently have joined, which has changed the way the company operates. It has become a thriving company that is a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Plan to work! Hard.... Any thriving, fast-paced company will be demanding...but very rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating the message to the market...customers and prospects are hungry for a technology partner to help them transform the way they work and the way they play.

    Pros

    Excellent Products! Strong market position. Strong positive corporate culture. Great people. Constant opportunity for growth/promotion.

    Cons

    Internal corporate/operational complexity can be a challenge. Previous history of dramatically changing the sales organization every year which is disruptive (Early signs this year are that this is changing for the positive! Little change expected in FY16 - Thank you Bain Capital!)

    Pros

    Employees are treated as individuals with lots emphasis on growth and development. Great management teams who each bring different experiences but always high levels of support! Awesome team and collaborative atmosphere. Flexibility of working from home when I'm not traveling is huge. IT is the place to be! I feel fortunate to have landed in a place where I can build a career and stay for years to come!

    Cons

    I have been very lucky in the sense that I have no experienced many cons during my time at BMC. Our executive leaders are doing everything they can to correct some of the flaws in process and management of customers so the perceived negatives are moving in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent and supportive of your reps!
