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

    Pros

    -Strong salary and commission package (fantastic accelerators for overachievers)
    -100% Club trip to Hawaii available to Inside Sales
    -Great solutions that compete well at enterprise level

    Cons

    -Promotion decisions are based on politics, not performance (they'll tell you otherwise, but I recommend talking to people who have left the org for the full story)
    -BMC does invest enough in R&D to provide SMB-level solutions, or enough in marketing to provide sufficient lead opportunities. These are a missed opportunity that could scale the company by fueling an inside sales growth engine
    -Revolving door of upper management makes it difficult to maintain a common direction
    -Massive re-org every April with the new fiscal year, which severely hinders productivity

    Advice to Management

    Readopt the meritocracy that briefly existed a couple years ago

    I have been working at BMC Software full-time

    Pros

    Modern office(s), Global workforce, Good infrastructure for collaboration

    Cons

    Non favorable HR policies when dealing with management. It is apparent that employees do not have a leg to stand on when it comes to their well being.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with an employee neutral HR policy that allows a fair and due process in resolving issues no matter what their job level may be. For as much emphasis as BMC claims to put on employee experience, it is not working the way that it should.

    I worked at BMC Software full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    BMC was a great place to work. A culture that valued the employees and rewarded commitment and performance at the individual level. Almost everyone has a "we are a team" attitude to help get the job done. There's a lot of amenities at headquarters to may the hard work easier.

    Cons

    The only downside I saw was a period of constant cost reductions through reductions in workforce. I believe that ended after the company went private. Many good people still there.

    I have been working at BMC Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Broad Portfolio, solid ecosystem of support for AEs.

    Cons

    Entrenched in On Prem but trying to make the Cloud transition...too much baggage. Remedy and Bladelogic customers are "fatigued". Support revenue dropping off fast. Quota's are a moving target and it's never down.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the AEs and AMs for supporting the base. It's a lot of work to keep Remedy customers or move them to the Cloud. By not compensating above current annual run rates, you're losing your best people.

    Pros

    Great people
    Accommodating work schedule (e.g., work remote when needed), although this is dependent upon the group you're in

    Cons

    Company not focused on continued development/training of personnel
    Difficult to advance unless you have a strong champion

    Advice to Management

    While it's important to bring in new people, don't forget about the existing employees that got you where you are today.
