    Pros

    Industry leader in ITSM tools and products. Benefits and compensation were in line with the industry standards. Great people to work with. Team members always willing to help and lend advice when needed.

    Cons

    Over the past couple of years, too much change in direction, management and line of sight on the business. When I first joined BMC, the company really cared about their employees and over the past couple of years that focus changed to the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of the great people you have working for you. Give them a sense that you do really care about their lives and their security in working for a great company.

    Pros

    Pays high salaries as a rule

    Cons

    Mis-managed at high levels, mis-allocate budget dollars almost constantly; over-fund certain areas while other areas are hopelessly underfunded and employees are burdened to the point of psychosis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit thinking that town halls and emails to employees get you off the hook for being "open and knowledgeable" about what your employees are doing and need. Last minute initiative introduction, budget shifts, and priority changes out of no where demotivate and damage employee morale more than any executive email or video can ever fix and customers end up suffering.

    Pros

    Work from home. No one cares if you do a good job or not. Get paid well for being stuck in the same position year after year.

    Cons

    SNOW is taking ITSM remedy accounts right and left. Saas strategy is lacking.
    They are hiring a lot of new sr. Management but nothing is changing. People are leaving right and left and many more are looking to get out.
    Not a good company to work for as a recent college grad unless you want to work on old technology like Mainframe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove Sr management and start fresh. Bain and golden gate capital should sell the company while they can get most of their money back.
