Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Environment is collaborative and open to new ideas. Good work/life balance. The people there are generally good at what they do and interested in doing the right thing for the company.

Cons

Lots of things changing - upper management couldn't figure things out and the company was recently bought by Bain and other investors. There is a lot of uncertainty about what is coming next because of that.

Advice to Management

Old management - get out of the way. New management - focus on innovation.

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

    Pros

    1. Excellent products
    2. Some good acquisitions

    Cons

    1. No Transparency - huge difference in salaries, comp plans amongst peers.
    2. Some groups are run like family business - senior Management is not aware of reality on the ground.
    3. Management makes false promises.
    4. No Recognition for the work done, managers can steal credit from you.
    5. No Growth Options - only for Management favorites not for performers.

    Advice to Management

    1. Feel the reality on the ground -- people, business - come out of your ivory tower.
    2. Remove bureaucracy, bring openness.
    3. Check what is happening in each group. lot of weird stuff happening which will harm the organization in the long run.
