    I have been working at VMware full-time (less than an year)


    Good pay, good people to work with and work for, good product, good campus (best I've ever worked at), good attitudes. Management keeps their eyes on what the market needs -- and doesn't need.


    Only, only, only complaint is the traffic on 85 and 280, especially in the evening commute. Surface streets sometimes better. That does affect the work-life balance some, as it induces people not to leave until 7PM.

    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at VMware.

    Interview Details

    I actually interviewed more than once for two separate TAM roles. The first round went through a series of 6 phone interviews. From what I understand I was final round but didn't get it. That started off with a technical interview which was a lot of questions surrounding the product stack. Be aware of new products and versions of vCloud, vSphere, vCAC, vCops, etc...

    Not sure if that many interviews is typical. The second time I applied was when they called me back after 5 months for another opening. This interview process took around a month and was a few more interviews technical, and scenario type questions. I'd suggest preparing notes with product info, as well as focusing on use case examples of your resume history.

    Interview Questions
    • The scenario questions are more of "what would you do in this situation". A lot of high level overview scenarios along the lines of how you deal with business stakeholders, interact with account teams, handle difficult conversations like customer pain points. Again, discuss use cases where you've implemented their products and what business problems you solved with them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very happy with the offer, didn't negotiate.
