BMC - stable employment - boring technology

Senior Product Developer (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsCompany growing fast - stable job and good chance to advance career.

The company got into the whole BSM story very early, and has had a lot of success at selling this to customers. Our customer base is constantly growing, and that makes for a lot of work and stable product development jobs.

The possible risk to a job here is that there is a trend to move work to the India office, and I would estimate that in another 3-4 years most of the work will move there. So existing employees need to create a place for them in a leaner environment.

ConsOutdated technology. Very IT specific work. if you understand how IT organizations work, or have good working knowledge about datacenters and all it takes to manage them, you will enjoy this work. Otherwise you will have to forget about all the neat stuff being done out there by companies like Google and Facebook. No place for that in this company.

No work is done on the cutting edge. The perspective is to gain customers, not to lead on technology front.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow people to move between difference job functions, across engineering and marketing and sales. Not much support for that currently. Company does not seem to be interested in encouraging employees to do so.

    Complete disregard for employee value

Unethical business practices and shady deal structuring in the sales organization. Seasoned, experienced employees treated like they are… Advice to Senior Management: Clean shop at top levels. Get rid of most upper level corrupt… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
