    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

    Pros

    -Work/life balance is great.
    -Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    -Lots of turnover with management/leadership. People leave or are fired (Managers and even the Director) and are not replaced in a timely manner. We're talking about positions being vacant for MONTHS! To continue, those in leadership roles are not necessarily the most or best qualified. There is definitely a lack of good leadership.
    -Office feels like high school with rumor mill and gossip.
    -Work is mundane and not challenging.
    -Even if you've been with the company for awhile, you may not get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job vetting and selecting managers and directors. Look at your employees and try to reward those who have been there for awhile and are high performers with promotions.
