    Pros

    BMC is very interested in making their employees comfortable so that they will be more productive. It is a very professional environment, and yet one feels very comfortable there.

    Cons

    When I worked there, I was part of a writer team. The writers were assigned to various product teams in the the company. It was difficult when I would be working really late with the project team, and yet still be expected to be at the office very early to report to my writer lead, while all of the developers and engineers on the project would show up much later....it was a bit creepy being the only person on my project floor for a couple of hours each morning.

    I worked at BMC Software as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    BMC Software does important work on relevant industry standard technology. In terms of the internship, I learned about BMC's software and got relevant, hands on experience writing code and giving demos and POCs.

    Cons

    The internship was a bit hectic early on. There wasn't a great sense of who I should be reporting to or what expectations there were for me.

    I worked at BMC Software full-time

    Pros

    Start with 3 weeks time-off which increases with time in the company. Compensation is amongst the top 25% in the industry but you have to negotiate and get it

    Cons

    Health benefits are getting poorer. With the company going private, they have not replaced the ESPP with an equivalent benefit
