I worked at BMC Software full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Salary and benefits are usually above average. Most low-level managers are good. Mainframe hardware and working environment is one of the best in the industry.

Cons

Every quarter, you read the report reading between the lines to see if the axe could fall on you, and whether or not to contact head hunters. High-level management does not pay attention to biennial employee surveys. Layoffs usually hit the people who have the best product knowledge, requiring the rest to cover even more stuff while trying to learn.

Advice to Management

Stop listening to the accountants. Growth isn't forever. Value your employees.

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

    Pros

    Great People. Good working environment. Loved working with them.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to communicate with upper management and getting pulled in too many directions.

    Advice to Management

    Try to communicate more with the lower people who are doing a very good portion of the brunt work. It's always nice to get an affirmation of good work or just a thanks.
