I have been working at BMC Software full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

401K match is ok; GICP is now almost zero

Cons

Read the news - company is going private; layoffs each month; morale is to the lowest point. Management is very bad, no good decision makers, too much politics, promote incompetency (based on bias and politics rather than real talent).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management is only concerns about their bonuses and stay - nobody will listen to any advise

Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BMC Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people, laid back office culture

    Cons

    Less and less perks every year until finally there are no perks except a chair in your cubicle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a little more on keeping your good employees and a little less on the big guys in the board room -- its the little guys in the office and at home offices who put your bread on the table.

    I have been working at BMC Software full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Individual offices, covered parking, decent salary, autonomy

    Cons

    Very short staffed due to many layoffs
    Not a lot of opportunity or encouragement for professional development
    Top heavy with managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of hiring more managers, hire people that can produce software
    Instead of granting huge bonues and raises to top management, give some raises to the people in the trenches

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
