    I have been working at BMC Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay and vacation time is reasonable. The office I work has a good culture and the local management is good to work with.

    Cons

    Changed corporate direction too often. Never sure where the future of the company is going. We were acquired in Feb 2012 and most of the items they promised were broken.
