    I worked at BMC Software full-time

    Pros

    I worked at BMC for almost 3 years. Company went through a substantial transformation, going from public to private. Great benefits and salary quite competitive.

    Cons

    It is always a challenge when a company goes from publicly traded to privately held. Investors tend to cut corners to maximize their profit, which it is probably understandable.

    Advice to Management

    No particular advice.

    Great place to work. I had the opportunity to move from Europe to Canada with BMC and have been able to work in a few different roles within BMC since arriving in Canada
    They really invest in coaching and continuous improvement and want to give you the tools to succeed

    A lot of changes at the start of each fiscal, but you learn to go with it and have to trust the direction the company is going in
