    Fantastic career possibilities and great training

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

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsNo major cons.

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

    Hard-working, rewarding culture and great technology

    Sales (Current Employee) Winnersh, England (UK)

    ProsReally 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.

    ConsWhen 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.

    Awesome people, decent benefits

    Senior Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsStart 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

    ConsHealth benefits are getting poorer. With the company going private, they have not replaced the ESPP with an equivalent benefit

    Great corporate culture and ethics.

    Senior Software Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsNew owners seem committed to long-term investment/growth.
    Great work-life balance. Flexible hours and time off.
    Excellent remuneration.
    Good professional development opportunities.

    ConsDecisions can be very USA-centric; sometimes results in square pegs being forced into round holes in other regions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to refresh our value and messaging around business service management; the transition to product pillars appears to promote competition rather than cooperation.

    Have enjoyed being part of this company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Pune (India)

    ProsSmart people, great leadership team- both globally as well as in India. India seems to occupy prime space in the minds of the HQ and there seems to be a lot of investment flowing in. Some of the benefits and practices are significant better than most of the industry. My friends envy my being here at BMC and aspire to work for a company like this which not only takes great pride in trying to be the best in its technology space, but also offers a great work environment, a strong & collaborative work culture and clean and transparent communication by leaders. Bounced back sharply in the last two quarters showing tremendous resilience when faced with difficult times.

    ConsThere is a lot of change but mostly on expected lines given the fact that the company went through a turbulent time not too long back.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou guys do a fantastic job.
