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

    Pros

    Great Training, Mostly Great People (although many are leaving), Many Products

    Cons

    Poor Strategy Execution and lack of Focus, Looking to Reduce Cost as much as possible, limited opportunity, major change in culture, lacking a true identity, technology is outdated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide individuals real opportunity, not just those that appear this way on the surface, there is a difference between motivation and manipulation

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Disapointing work experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at BMC Software

    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.
