I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)
Flexibility on working from home, no need to spend much time in the office if it's not necessary. Good salary and benefits Amazing products and technology makes it very easy to evangelize and be passionate about what we do Plenty of internal events, training and ennoblement to get the job done VMware cares about their staff, great culture and the people are fantastic
VMworld is the industries biggest event of its kind, but you have to sell a kidney or work brutal hours (if you are lucky) to go as an employee. Understood that it's an event for customers, but at least allow the customer facing teams (PSO, SE, TAM) to attend, hold customer meetings, be part of this event. The value for staff reaches far beyond the breakout sessions, you'll be surprised how much bumping into a customer, vendor or partner turns into great business later on. It has been and still is very difficult to get promoted without either handing in your resignation or making a lot of noise combined with good luck. The career path seems much more defined for upper management than it is for technical teams. You've got to be in the right place at the right time. Sometimes this leads to our best talent moving elsewhere.
Advice to Management
VMware has grown fast, but has moved on from that stage of being a teenager to a more mature adult. In other words, VMware is a big company now with over 26,000 employees. Along with that the management has become tiresome for some areas of the business. Stop micro-managing us, we are professional enough to manage our own time and priorities, did it for the last 4 years so don't ruin it now. There are also many 'super-stars' within VMware that don't get the recognition they deserve. I'm not talking about me, I have made sure my voice has been heard. There are others that bring super top talent that are forced to leave due to lack of career progression. Get this sorted out now, especially in the UK and regions outside of the USA.
