    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Invest a lot on training, talents all around in the sales team, nice offices.

    Cons

    No investment in R&D (legacy technology, difficult to attract new customers); poor leadeship, many managers doesn't have enough experience and are not able to take decision (many "yes man"); they try to make impossible to new hire to be successfull (commission calculation are crazy, you are not sure if a deal will be paid or not, "tricky!"), this cause to much turnover (consequences of promise and lack of management quality); best people are running away.

    Advice to Management

    You try to hire successfull people, remember that they leave you fast if they are not managed with experience .

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

    Pros

    Of late, company is making very big strides in terms of nextgen enterprise software and getting ready to meet the future technology challenges. Quality is given the utmost importance by the executive leadership. A lot of benefits based on merit are handed over to the employees.

    Cons

    Hardly get some personal time, as everyday there is something important waiting to happen at work. Too stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Need a brief 2 or 3 weeks before the next release planning. That will help reduce the employee burnout issues.

    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 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
