    Pros

    Clear vision and direction, well-articulated by CEO
    Solid (if aging) products play well in larger, old-line IT shops
    Great colleagues
    Lots of sales and technical enablement, opportunities to diversify technical knowledge
    HQ visits/briefings are a first class experience for customers

    Cons

    Sales turnover
    Inconsistent performance
    lack of reviews (salary or performance)
    Aging (if solid) products are less appealing to leading-edge companies
    What will being taken private mean for the long string of acquisitions that drove growth injected new technology into the company?

    Advice to Management

    Need to be prepared for the "post Big-4" world of IT management solutions

    I worked at BMC Software full-time

    Pros

    Reasonable work/life balance. Interesting development work. Used to be a lot of very sharp people. Most workers are nice colleagues.

    Cons

    Engineers are treated as interchangeable cogs. Very little appreciation for experience and skill. Mgmt pushes very hard for unattainable short schedule projections. Mgmt is too concerned with assigning blame for problems. Lots of favoritism. Frequent layoffs affect morale.

    Advice to Management

    The engineers create the products you sell. Show a little appreciation.
