I worked at BMC Software

Pros

Great job security as long as you keep your head down and do your work and wait for bonus to get paid without expecting any job advancement.

Cons

No place to advance one's career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rather than holding employees retained with attractive bonus plan pay them competitive salaries and let them work hard for it.

    Overall, good quality people
    Flexible work schedule

    Cons

    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
    Onboarding
    Heavy Dir and above level organization
    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.
