"Disapointing work experience"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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.
