Education Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 18, 2017
BMC has been going through some rough patches and might not be at the top anymore, but they still have a great legacy product that they could build on if they come up with some more competitive products.
Pros
Great pay, freedom to do your job
Cons
Lot of good people leaving, unstable in the market

BMC - Busy Making it Complicated
Lead Commissions Analyst (Former Employee) –  Pepperell, MASeptember 8, 2017
Over the 10 years I worked at BMC, it has become very cut throat and competitive. Management is only concerned with their pocketbook and not their team.

Like traveling back in time to 1997
Senior Business Process Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 1, 2017
Unqualified, incompetent "managers". Egos, egos, egos. Unfair practices. Illogical business structure. Incredible financial risk. A software publisher's audit wet dream.

Great Place to work
Presales Software Consultant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 30, 2017
Great place to work; great product, great co-workers, great management, great customers. Worked in Houston office -- liked it until they went to the "open oiffice" concept -- basically, everyone sitting at long tables in the open. Very noisy, but worked from home as result.

Great company, great people, great product
Enterprise Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 1, 2017
BMC is a world-class software solution provider. The company reinvests heavily into R&D, ensuring that reps have the best solution on the market to provide to customers.

The technology can be confusing, as it is enterprise IT and you are selling into IT organizations, not to other business units.

Management does support the individual contributors and will clear their calendars to walk into a board room with reps.

I would highly recommend BMC, if your interest lies in High Tech.

A great place to learn, and sometimes a good place to advance
Inside Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Cary, NCJuly 28, 2017
For the inside sales office, a pretty relaxed environment. High performers are sometimes recognized and rewarded, but not always. A great place to learn about the IT industry, but longevity with the company is questionable.

Company was taken private to allow quicker response to marletplace
Principal Consultant (Former Employee) –  Midlothian, VAJuly 6, 2017
I spent 6+ years at BMC. They were the ITSM leader when I joined and was growing. By the end of my tenure that were no longer the leader and were taking drastic steps, such as multiple RIF to reduce costs and attempt to be more competitive. In the 3 years since I was terminated the company has introduced many new software capabilities that may be 2 years to late.

Great Culture, Management, and Opportunities
Technical Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 14, 2017
There is a strong culture of hiring the best and trusting them. I worked in a close-knit team of world-class professionals under some of the best management I have ever seen. Everyone truly cares about making things the best for the whole team, and the management team knows that their job is to help us to do our best work and then get out of our way.
Pros
Excellent culture and benefits

Sales (Current Employee) –  United StatesMay 11, 2017
Stressful workplace. There is good people that care. Overall, all about your quota. Miss your number and you are on a plan. Good products across the board, not always the best but often the most expensive.
Pros
Good people, good products
Cons
Stress

A Technology Acquisition Company
Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZApril 28, 2017
Most products are based on buying companies and merging products together, not original research. Your experience of company mostly will depend on product you work on. For example some products are clean and well-organized and fun to work on, while others are too complex and full of problems. Some teams are well-staffed while others are not, etc. etc. (staff Reductions happen on regular basis).
Pros
Great people, interesting and challenging, flexible work (home or office)
Cons
regular staff reductions, poor work-life balance, too many procedures, few resources
