Wonderful experience it is to work with BMC

I can't spell the feeling that how awesome company is and it's culture. Every one in here and every one who join feels overwhelming year by year..

  • Top Employee Response

    I think they underestimated our ability to sell this fiscal year (don't tell them).

  • It's a mix. About 50% of the time they're easily achievable, the other 50% it's clear they're unrealistic as the 1st quarter progresses.

Asked to all employees at BMC Software

  • I don't think it's difficult to sell the product. Sales cycle has varied wildly and lengthened the last few years: 45-180 days+; I'd say 90 days on average.

  • Sales cycle varies wildly for the relatively simply product I work with. Typical is probably in the 30-60 day range. I don't view it as a difficult product to sell.
