I have been working at BMC Software full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

401K match is ok; GICP is now almost zero

Cons

Read the news - company is going private; layoffs each month; morale is to the lowest point. Management is very bad, no good decision makers, too much politics, promote incompetency (based on bias and politics rather than real talent).

Advice to Management

Upper management is only concerns about their bonuses and stay - nobody will listen to any advise

    I worked at BMC Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people, laid back office culture

    Cons

    Less and less perks every year until finally there are no perks except a chair in your cubicle

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little more on keeping your good employees and a little less on the big guys in the board room -- its the little guys in the office and at home offices who put your bread on the table.

    I worked at BMC Software (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    some great people. Good vision. If you are in the "in crowd" or designated as a high performing, you will be compensated very well in the pay for performance environment.

    Cons

    old technology trying to get retrofit into today's technology. Innovation and progress can be slow and frustrating. Most positions are very stressful - especially when the products cannot meet the customer needs in the field.

    The company has great vision, but the strategy changes too quickly, with each new management wave.
    Need better strategy for acquired companies - products are not well integrated and often fall by the wayside.

    Advice to Management

    Take a better look at your senior management and their management style - financial results may be met or exceeded, but take a look at how they got there.
