I worked at BMC Software full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Nice campus. Many perks, like free cokes, soups, dinners at quarter close, dry cleaners. Good benefits

Cons

Way too much overtime expected. When quarter-close or year-end close comes up, be prepared to work 18 hour days. And yes, they do feed you dinner for your efforts. The most frustrating part was that OT was mainly for 'face time" and the job really didn't require that amount of time, it was all about being seen at your desk. Environment of martyrs to see who could work the longest hours. No pay raises even budgeted, bonuses were ok but didn't make up for the lack of raises and overtime.

Advice to Management

Actually have HR conduct exit interviews and then communicate to management. We had four people in our group of ten leave within a year and not one of us was asked for an exit interview....maybe management doesn't want to know why people leave in such droves?

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

    Pros

    Good sales training, successful reps can make a great deal, very little micro managing, a real effort to help you grow your career, a genuine concern for your well being and career success, some great market leading products, some really top talent

    Cons

    Frequent change, always buying new companies and adding new products to the mix, a big company that requires you to work with a large ecosystem to get anything done, not always the engineering support you need to sell some products

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a your core capabilities and stop trying to be everything to everyone.
