Pros

BMC Software sells some exceptional products, and can address a lot of pain inside of IT operations. The Cloud Lifecycle Management tools are exceptiona, and at least 18 months ahead of the competition.

Cons

Sometimes you see people that should not be doing the jobs that they are in. They are either unqualified, or incompetent, yet they stay and nobody is forcing them to leave. They also do not take many risks, but risk is inherent in innovation.

Advice to Management

Be a bit more focused on the product and the customer, not necessarily the stock price. If the development org is not able to write stable and functional code, then you should consider drastic changes in that area to shake things up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop signing up for every little initiative because you have really overextended yourselves and your employees. Focus on the core things that are going to make a difference and that actually matter. Everyone looks like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off. Develop your employees, that's what they want! Stop making it just another grinding job where your efforts are continuously wasted.
