    I worked at BMC Software (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonably competitive salary combined with remote work opportunities allows for some good flexibility when having a young family. Remote work options may be less welcome now than when I was there.

    Cons

    BMC is an old-school bulky machine that pivots slowly. The company had recently been acquired when I was there and was trying to implement some change, but with many layers of management, what I was used to doing in 1-2 weeks at other companies took 5-6 weeks . Almost the entire demand marketing team has turned over since leaving. If you have an entrepreneurial nature, this is a tough place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk when saying you want to be more start-up in nature.

    I worked at BMC Software (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Enterprise Software company with a lot of money and very well structured. I liked the focus on teams and employee appreciation at times... I worked for this company for 16 years. Mainly because I got paid well and had a great work life balance

    Cons

    BMC is not down for change. The product does not work as well as it should and management doesn't care as much for their employees happiness as much as they care about what executive mgmt is thinking of them.

    Advice to Management

    focus on your people and your customers happiness....
