    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 have been working at BMC Software full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I deal with in Sales are fantastic professionals, The company has solid benefits plan, 401k match, good training opportunities and a great business plan to grow.

    Cons

    Some politics as usual, some products could use a faster refresh but most of that is underway. No real issues beyond normal enterprise business efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training is OK but with new business model sales training needs to be re vamped to focus specific business plan for future growth. Not all meetings can be 100% effective when conducted remotely, reconsider team meetings with proper governance over meeting objectives. (emphasis future growth, updated training, sales training, value training versus review of previous quarterly business)

    I worked at BMC Software as an intern (less than an 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

    Pros

    Colleagues are professional, courteous, and intelligent.

    Home/office life is well balanced.

    I personally work from home 3 out of 5 days every week.

    Cons

    Among others, the workload is a big challenge. Projects are often delayed due to time/money constraints.

    In the last five years, there have been at least five reorgs. Lots of movement consolidating managers under directors, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I couldn't ask for more from my current management team.

    Keep up the hard work and develop strong relationships.
