    I have been working at BMC Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - World class approach and process to selling that drives Sales opportunity predictability, high customer engagement, and value - the onboarding and training here is second to none.
    - Fun dynamic environment with real team spirit - yes the job may have high expectations but this is an active not passive sales role that helps you raise and refine your existing sales skills. I have sat in many meetings where the sales approach and professionalism has been praised by the customer as a mechanism to them achieving their own goals.
    - If you are committed to being the best salesperson you can be you will thoroughly enjoy the job, the culture, and your co-workers - this is a team of high performing individuals who enjoy being challenged and solutioning complex problems. As a tenured sales person at BMC I find the negative reviews of underperforming leavers more cathartic for their own exit versus an accurate reflection on reality.

    Cons

    - BMC internal processes can be complicated - improvements are being made to address this but not as quickly as could be
    - Internal meetings can get in the way of customer facing activity
    - Our pre-sales teams are world-class, but they can be stretched due to volume of opportunity

    Advice to Management

    - It is clear you care about BMC and how to make it better for the people who work here and our customers. I think the changes that have been made over the last 2 years have positively impacted our business and culture.
    - It might be worthwhile reviewing our recruitment partners

    Channel Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BMC Software (London, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was warned that the Manager I was due to see in the UK channel environment was pretty poor..but went in with an open mind. The recruitment team got my details mixed up prior to interview with several people contacting me at the same time. I should have listened to friends who have worked for BMC in London .. and saved myself a train fare... but on the up side.. I'll never have to work for them!
