I worked at BMC Software full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I would work for them again. The company has recently privatized. Hopefully, this will be for the benefit of the company and it's employees. Everyone I worked with was very competent and knowledgeable. The visibility between sales, marketing, development and support was the best I have seen. There were many good customer relationships. Feedback from the customer often directed the product development which resulted in rich, fully-functioned products.

Cons

Employment was unstable. Working with groups in non-US time-zones became a challenge.

    I have been working at BMC Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone from C-Level down is open and honest with their opinions. People work collaboratively to bring ideas to fruition and assist each other to succeed. The company is open to having you travel and wants you to balance work/life by allowing time to work from home.

    Cons

    Training, while overall good, does not do the best of jobs focusing on the lower level employees.

    I worked at BMC Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company that offers decent salary. Well-known name, current technologies.

    Cons

    Beware: Unbelievably restrictive non-compete for non-executive (i.e., "general worker") employees.

    The non-compete (that everyone must sign) is written so that the employee who signs it cannot work as the same "title" anywhere in the world--not just the US. This was confirmed by a very expensive employment law attorney, and it's enforceable if you work in Texas.

    What company makes a low-level business analyst, technical writer, or a administrative assistant sign a document like this? It's almost unheard of.

    Advice to Management

    Your non-compete is so 1975. No one uses them, and why do you need to prevent people from working and making a living if they must, or want to, change jobs? This sounds like legal indentured servitude, and it is restricting the employee population to the naive or desperate.
