    Pros

    Incredible respect for employees, great working environment, challenging business and technical opportunities, good people. I've worked for a number of companies as both an employee and as a consultant, hands down and without any hesitation BMC Software is the best place I've ever worked. It's a large company so you get the benefits and infrastructure of such but it also has a highly focused product set and feels like a much smaller company with easy access to executive leadership.

    Cons

    It's a large organization so it can be difficult at times to see how your contributions are affecting the bottom line or increasing marketshare.

    Advice to Management

    More 'promote from within' opportunities would probably make this one of the best places to work in the world.


  2. "ok"

    Pros

    freedom of expression related to getting it done, freedom related to work hours and telecomuting, great people to work with, plenty of educational opportunities, diverse array of responsibilities and product sets, decent pay, decent benefits, decent bonus potential,

    Cons

    good ol boy network is how you get promoted (or not). high quotas that increase every year, constant reogainzations even when things are working well, constant shifting of strategies, account assignment rotations, no accelorators in bonus plan, cap on bonus plan, sakes reps are run ragged and strssed out due to the fear factor of loosing their jobs, some managers have very poor people skills,

    Advice to Management

    listen to what the individual contributors are really feeling related to their job satisfaction
