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

    Pros

    A relatively small and flat organization, hence great visibility for high performers.

    If you are relatively experienced and confident that you can contribute right away, while keeping your eye on the rewards, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Very little to none in terms of training programs, coupled with very little hand holding. You need a self-starter mentality and sustained high energy level from the moment you join.

    Pros

    Associate position good for someone straight out of college. Decent compensation considering the job. Good if your looking to work for a small company.

    Cons

    Not a good fit for someone coming from a structured corporate environment. The atmosphere is an HR Manager's nightmare. Inappropriate jokes and comments. Atmosphere can be unbelievably inappropriate. You can kiss your weekends and dinner plans goodbye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be fair across the board with office policies. Management should also "lift" staff and maintain a professional demeanor.

    Pros

    some great people to work with, good level of technology/software

    Above average pay, above average software, boatloads of politics and power struggles.

    Pros

    Awesome people at the departmental level.
    Architecturally sound software with solid development processes and coding standards enforced.
    Pay 10-15% above industry average.

    Cons

    Due to the politics and power struggles it's best to fly low and keep under the radar. Don't over or under perform, you can quickly find yourself in the middle of a bad situation.

    Technology in general seems to be considered a nuisance by many in upper management whose focus is on reducing cost via outsourcing without any consideration on quality, standards, process. This will likely cause much pain going forward.

    401k provided, no match provided.

    No cost of living adjustments.

    "Personal" side that's really nice.

    I have been working at BMC Group full-time

    Pros

    Company isn't too big that it has lost the personal feel. Lots of flexibility in a "work hard, play hard" type of environment. Not stodgy or stale - a "young" feel, and entrepreneurial. Products and services are good.

    Cons

    The standard stuff. Some processes are defunct but that would be true anywhere. You need to be a cultural fit - which can be a challenge for new (truly qualified) talent - as there has been some turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase HR, internal communications. Appropriate and localized middle management.

    Competitive pay scale, the reason most of the upper management is single is because work won't allow for a personal life

    I worked at BMC Group

    Pros

    Pay scale was very generous. Benefits for employees were covered by the company.

    Cons

    It's not a 9-5 job by any means. Every employee was on call 24/7, even during vacations. The company beefed up upper management and laid off several employees due to salaries. The original owners have lost control of the company and is very doubtful it will recover from this. Lots of people have left from parent company and other companies purchased by BMC for these very reasons. It is possible that a bankruptcy company files bankruptcy!?!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider getting back to your grass roots! Or get the company ready to be purchased at a fire sale by Epiq.

    Pros

    The company is a mid-sized global company; the management team is accessible and come from highly regarded, global companies.

    Cons

    The company has ambitious goals for growth and are now putting in more structure in place including new salespeople.
