    Disapointing work experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great people, products, flexible environment and competitive pay were the only things that made working at BMC a tolerable experience.

    Cons

    A clueless top management is slow to act on opportunities which everyone else sees clear as day. Also appear to not understand that you can't grow a business if you only employ enough people to keep the lights on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace yourself with execs who know how to grow a business, not make the bottom line appear better by laying off people.

    Frustrating after being acquired

    Pros

    The pay and vacation time is reasonable. The office I work has a good culture and the local management is good to work with.

    Cons

    Changed corporate direction too often. Never sure where the future of the company is going. We were acquired in Feb 2012 and most of the items they promised were broken.
