    Pros

    BMC 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

    Pros

    Incredible respect for employees, great working environment, challenging business and technical opportunities, good people. I've worked for a number of companies as both an employee and as a consultant, hands down and without any hesitation BMC Software is the best place I've ever worked. It's a large company so you get the benefits and infrastructure of such but it also has a highly focused product set and feels like a much smaller company with easy access to executive leadership.

    Cons

    It's a large organization so it can be difficult at times to see how your contributions are affecting the bottom line or increasing marketshare.

    Advice to Management

    More 'promote from within' opportunities would probably make this one of the best places to work in the world.
