"I've enjoyed my time working for BMC. They constantly and consistently keep an eye on how well their employees are taken care of. They offer many great benefits, and encourage career progression, both in the form of education assistance and BMC product training. I highly recommend working for them."

"It's a good company, lots of things to learn. But people on top do politics, sometimes you don't get credit for your work, it's not that work is not appreciated, work has been appreciated but someone else stole the credit, and management knows that, still they don't do anything."

"BMC is a great company to work for. Unfortunately they are rebuilding. I was a part of the restructured end that got laid off to keep the company profitable."

"Worst mangers and worst leadership. They do not think of their employees. Low pay/ low bonus. Tons of work. NO WORK LIFE BALANCE. No motivation at work. You work like a slave. Your achievements are never given any importance."

"Loved my co- workers. They are a motivated, professional bunch. Unfortunately, at least in my group, the VP was a bully who changed his mind from one day/week to the next and then blamed his managers and employees for not "getting it right". Seriously, this guy did this constantly. I think he knew exactly what he was doing, but he felt like keeping everyone in fear would somehow keep them on their toes and more productive. The SLT team have enabled him to torment 100+ people for 7+ years."

"I have worked for BMC Software since April 2013. Wonderful work environment, however what is most important is the direction for the product and goals for the product. I'm working at a mid level while I have 16+ years of experience. I did speak about my expectations at length during the hiring process, however due to reorg, manager who hired me and my current manager are different. The need they have is different."
