Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Lot's of good sales training and broad product portfolio. Got to spend a lot of money trying to sell customers on a good time rather than reliable technology.

Cons

Too many layers of management, lack of executive communication with employees and no value add to the process. Sales Directors are more interested in managing up and throwing their subordinates under the bus. The products didn't work. There was constant turnover and therefore no sense of team work working towards the common cause.

Advice to Management

Clean up the mess and invest more in Automation

    Pros

    Great job security as long as you keep your head down and do your work and wait for bonus to get paid without expecting any job advancement.

    Cons

    No place to advance one's career.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than holding employees retained with attractive bonus plan pay them competitive salaries and let them work hard for it.

    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.
