BMC is a great working environment but beware of the layoffs

Sales (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at BMC Software

ProsBMC Software Inc. has a professional work environment. Competitive pay and a great working environment. You have an array of activities to be involved in. There are quite a few mergers that may go on through the year and every year there are lay offs. The layoffs tend to lean toward the sales team and the administrative team. IT jobs are being sent to India (of course) but there are still IT Jobs that are located in Houston. On the job site there is a cleaners, hair salon, delis, basketball court, tennis field, soccer/football field. You will absolutely love it

ConsLayoffs

Too Scared to Say (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at BMC Software


Pros: Many opportunities for sharp individuals. BMC is a large corporation that offers a lot of advancement for those that are sharp and can navigate… Cons: Politics and mismanagement are out of control. There are far too many layers of middle management and since the company gives no… Advice to Senior Management: Wake up. If you don't improve the compensation and benefits… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
