    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.
