Pros

Environment is collaborative and open to new ideas. Good work/life balance. The people there are generally good at what they do and interested in doing the right thing for the company.

Cons

Lots of things changing - upper management couldn't figure things out and the company was recently bought by Bain and other investors. There is a lot of uncertainty about what is coming next because of that.

Advice to Management

Old management - get out of the way. New management - focus on innovation.

    Pros

    Great culture, very sales focused
    Very few egos compared to other places I've worked
    Everyone willing to go the extra mile and do what's right for the customer
    Products are tightly integrated and getting better over time, customers view this as an architecture and want to do it in their organizations
    BMC IT organization very willing to share experience and best practices with potential customers
    Great partners

    Cons

    Work hard, play hard... not sure if that's a con or not:-)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the field - customers, support engineers, sales teams, etc. They mainly like all that we're doing but by listening and extra 10% we could blow the doors off the market.

    Pros

    I would work for them again. The company has recently privatized. Hopefully, this will be for the benefit of the company and it's employees. Everyone I worked with was very competent and knowledgeable. The visibility between sales, marketing, development and support was the best I have seen. There were many good customer relationships. Feedback from the customer often directed the product development which resulted in rich, fully-functioned products.

    Cons

    Employment was unstable. Working with groups in non-US time-zones became a challenge.
