BMC Software...smart people, good atmosphere and well positioned...now needs to execute.

Senior Manager (Current Employee) Lexington, MA

ProsThe best reason to work at BMC is the autonomy and flexibility allowed by management. Direct leadership is competent and working to make positive change. The people at BMC are smart and dedicated to seeing the company succeed. There is some resistance to change but overall it is a good place to work.

ConsInability to change on a large scale. Feels like working for the government at some level. The pace of change at BMC can be very slow, because people are not given the authority to drive change. Everyone needs to be informed and approve of everything. The end result is a watered down version of positive change.

Advice to Senior ManagementHold sales more accountable, and reward the best employees better. You cannot grow simply through acquisition.
