Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at BMC Software full-time

Pros

They pay pretty well, especially if you are a lateral hire and can negotiate your offer well.
Work-life balance is better than average.

Cons

You need to leave independent thinking at home, else you are doomed - you either align or you get out!
Losing market share rapidly, while the management fiddles, and continues to be smug.
Used to have great ethical standards, but not any more. Leaders and their families enjoy at company expense.

Advice to Management

I think it is time for a change of guard at BMC.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at BMC Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good infrastructure
    - Good office location

    Cons

    - Poor vision in understanding trends in the market
    - Company believes in acquisition than building products on their own
    - Most of the products reached saturation stage as their is very less innovation
    - Poor mgmt, even first line managers are very less technically involved with the team

    Advice to Management

    - Only innovation is the key, acquisition will not help enhance products and in turn increase revenues

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Culture of respect, hard work, innovation, a huge pool of highly talented people, brilliant new UK HQ office in Winnersh.

    Cons

    Lots of change going on (but think that's the same everywhere), it's very much a self serve environment so you need to be curious and work things out for yourself (but others always happy to help if asked)

    Advice to Management

    More little conversations to keep linked into what the troops are feeling on the ground is always appreciated and insightful
