    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.
