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

Pros

Love the culture, people help you achieve your goals, beautiful campus.

Cons

With BMC going private, we're in a time of adjustment. Fist fiscal quarter was wasted.

Advice to Management

In investing, the higher your risk the higher the rewards. The same principle should apply to your sales people. If you make it significantly harder to achieve a higher quota, the commissions should increase and not decrease.

    "Disapointing work experience"

    Pros

    Great people, products, flexible environment and competitive pay were the only things that made working at BMC a tolerable experience.

    Cons

    A clueless top management is slow to act on opportunities which everyone else sees clear as day. Also appear to not understand that you can't grow a business if you only employ enough people to keep the lights on.

    Advice to Management

    Replace yourself with execs who know how to grow a business, not make the bottom line appear better by laying off people.
