    I have been working at BMC Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have done the "circuit" over the past 10 years -- BMC and many of the major competitors....I am now back at BMC again based on great people, great products and a vision/strategy that makes sense and is working!

    * Great, great people
    * Very supportive management that "has my back"
    * Challenging and interesting work dealing with large customers and complex environments
    * Some of the smartest and savvy people I have ever worked with in my career

    Cons

    Big spread out organization -- you need to reach out and connect in person and remotely with a lot of people

    Advice to Management

    * Keep going with the Digital Transformation message -- it's working!

    * Continue to look for ways to innovate

    I worked at BMC Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, flexible working hours, runs a bit like a start-up, autonomy to design your working environment and role

    Cons

    You're on your own, not much hand-holding, don't work here if you need someone to guide you, no real performance plans or reviews, no regular raises. Typically you get a raise when you move to a new role

    Advice to Management

    Implement performance plans and reviews, communicate newsworthy items to employees before it goes out to the public

    Pros

    Has great global exposure.
    Matching 401k
    Good health insurance
    Many career opportunities
    Allows working from home 100%

    Cons

    Expects employees to work 24/7
    No help with internal career management
    I can’t come up with any more cons to fill the twenty word requirement, so here you go.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the policy that customer agreed to when they signed Software the license agreement. Don’t make your employees work on things that BMC don’t sell. You’re setting your employees up to fail if you don’t stick with the support boundary.
