    Current Employee - Inside Sales Manager in Buenos Aires (Argentina)

    I have been working at BMC Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I just finalized my 3rd week on the job and I must say I am surprised. This is a company that is as "aged" as Oracle or HP, and that has gone through transformation before enough times so to incorporate those as motions to it's familiar rythm of work, yet it seems to me that right now it's all about looking inside and really pursuing a major goal or objective: true transformation. People is excited, discussions are mostly about doing better things and being more active on it and most importantly, the people who has to be discussing the money issues are the people who is supposed to do that, it is not a common theme among the whole company. They literally said "we got it, you guys innovate, think big, we have your backs". Result? 10 out of 10 reps with more than 6 months in the company already are overachieving; marketing is bringing up new tools to the table; services and support are proactively partnering with sales. This is a great place and a terrific moment to be right now.

    Cons

    Too early to say, I am really enjoying my time here and I'm surprised of how good I feel about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up this rythm and it will pay off really really quick!

    Pros

    UK focus on development and career growth is fantastic. Great new facilities in Winnersh and London Victoria. EMEA is growing fast and the new product investment is paying dividends for customers and employees. Great consistent sales process and a management team that understand how to support the teams identify, create and deliver value.
    Salaries are highly competitive, attracting great talent, and the company has a real can do approach.

    Cons

    Can be long hours on occasions, but a great team spirit on the journey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, the post privatisation energy and investment is great.

    Current Employee - Account Manager (Sales) in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at BMC Software full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great career progression opportunities (last 4 years have been fantastic in terms of progression for me) - long may it continue!

    Excellent coaching and open learning culture with the organisation with fantastic support from the business as well as sales management

    Products are good - very competitive and lots of innovation taking place with the new organisational alignment.

    Great start-up mentality at the moment with the move to a private company.

    Life changing earning potential - I think BMC have to one of the, if not the best payers in the business.

    Cons

    No major cons.

    Hours can be long - but then this is largely self inflicted - I'm in sales right? :-)

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Really bright people. Lots of training and mentoring. Management genuinely cares about employees' success. Customers very positive towards the company, probably down to high focus on ensuring customers actually achieve the benefits BMC promises.

    Cons

    When a deal is happening working hours can be long. Regular multi-day training requires either long days after the training to handle customer actions, or good planning.

    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
