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.

    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

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

    Pros

    Decent paymaster in the context of the local market. Good facilities in general, good location within the city.

    Cons

    Confused management, no clear strategy. Uncertainty due to privatization. Glass ceiling for technical roles. Advantage of good location is soon going to be lost, by moving to the periphery of the city next year.
