Lead Technical Marketing Consultant (Former Employee), Houston, TX – May 29, 2015
Pros: See above
Cons: See above
The Good: Very good company to work for. Lots of freedom to do what you think is best for the company. Lots of possibilities to travel and meet colleagues abroad. Good package.
The Bad: Promotions are on a Who-Knows-Who basis and based not on merit. No real salary increase. Company constantly finds ways to pay the least bonus possible. Working from home gives you less visibility into the company.
The Ugly: Management lives in another world completely unrelated to the workforce. Yearly cost reduction. Every end of March it's a gamble if you stay or if you go. Being layed off or not is completely unrelated to performance or importance in the company.
System Desktop Analyst/Executive Level Support (Current Employee), Houston TX – May 27, 2015
Pros: Great Benefits, Gym on campus, New Technologies
Cons: No annual raises
I started at BMC 3 years ago and I have moved up from Sales Desk Support to Exec Level Support my current manager is probably the best manager I have worked with. My hours are set but are flexible which is great anytime I need time off it is granted and I work with all different types of technology which of course will help me in the future. Overall it is a great place to work and I am glad to be part of BMC.
Great atmosphere and casual, yet professional, work environment!
Senior Video Production Specialist (Former Employee), Houston, TX – May 5, 2015
Pros: great work environment, variety of lunch options, workout facilities, media/technology, small community
I looked forward to going to work each day. The team I worked with was very creative and very easy to bounce ideas off of and make things happen. The professional and casual atmosphere allowed each person to be themselves and do the job in which they were hired to do. If it weren't for corporate downsizing, I would expect to still be there today.

Pros: I worked alone

This was a small company but a fun place to work. I mostly worked alone and there was not a great deal of down time a stayed busy and my days went by fast. The size of the work place was in a very nice area.
BUSINESS VALUE CONSULTANT (Former Employee), Houston, TX – January 24, 2015
BMC could do a better job of looking at people as people instead of carbon units. I found my fellow workers to be very pleasant people but constantly under excessive pressure to sell sell sell. I would create a culture that brings customers to BMC as opposed to sending sales reps to customers. Software companies, for the most part, live and die on quarterly numbers. Maybe it's time to do something different?
