Good company, but slow to adapt at times.

Pros

BMC Software sells some exceptional products, and can address a lot of pain inside of IT operations. The Cloud Lifecycle Management tools are exceptiona, and at least 18 months ahead of the competition.

Cons

Sometimes you see people that should not be doing the jobs that they are in. They are either unqualified, or incompetent, yet they stay and nobody is forcing them to leave. They also do not take many risks, but risk is inherent in innovation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be a bit more focused on the product and the customer, not necessarily the stock price. If the development org is not able to write stable and functional code, then you should consider drastic changes in that area to shake things up.

    Horrible turnover and no inclination to really fix it and do it right
    No training
    No accountability of management or employees
    Mgrs can't manage their budgets, I wonder how they run their own household
    Sales org always "wins" on decisions for the good of the company
    Surprisingly complicated systems and lots of manual work
    Treatment of employees
    Major Egos

    Lots of band-aids on issues to get by
    Incompetent leadership - inconsistent messaging, playing favorites, external hires that are not ready for management
    As soon as you implement something, no one uses it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop signing up for every little initiative because you have really overextended yourselves and your employees. Focus on the core things that are going to make a difference and that actually matter. Everyone looks like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off. Develop your employees, that's what they want! Stop making it just another grinding job where your efforts are continuously wasted.
