The best place I ever worked for.

I worked at BMC Software full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Talented workforce. Interesting and challenging work. Couldn't wait to get to work in the morning- the work was that much fun.

Cons

Constant layoffs have led to a lot of unproductive politics. I chose to leave for family reasons, even though I was offered the opportunity to telecommute. I knew that I would be endangering my family as the telecommuters are out of the loop so easy to axe when the quarterly statement dictates a cut. I still miss BMC but family first (aging parents)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to the people, products and long term plan -- ignore the quarterly variability. Take a page from Alan mulally's play book.

Stop the constant offshoring to make short term numbers look good, and sacrificing the long term. Remember we were the best little software house in Texas because of the dedicated people working non-stop voluntarily.

    I have been working at BMC Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good sales training, successful reps can make a great deal, very little micro managing, a real effort to help you grow your career, a genuine concern for your well being and career success, some great market leading products, some really top talent

    Cons

    Frequent change, always buying new companies and adding new products to the mix, a big company that requires you to work with a large ecosystem to get anything done, not always the engineering support you need to sell some products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a your core capabilities and stop trying to be everything to everyone.
