Pros

VCE is a joint venture between VMware/Cisco and EMC and was seeded with top talent from those companies. The people here, are in most circumstances, top notch technically. The company functions much like a start-up. That is both good and bad. In general the pros are as follows:

-Opportunity to work on as much tech as you want
-Flexible work environment
-Good compensation and benefits
-Smart folks that can mentor you are around every corner
-Leading edge involvement in converged infrastructure market

Cons

Having grown from seventy odd employees to about 1000 in about a year causes issues. There have been a couple of organizational 'revisions', but to be honest that should be expected. You can't expect everyone to land in the right job when you are hiring that fast. To their credit, the management has allowed people to move into other jobs during these reorganizations, so if you got in to a place you didn't like, more often than not, you have the opportunity to make a change to something more to your liking.

In general, other cons:
-Sometimes feels like a hamster wheel, lots of fires to put out while processes are created to handle 'normal' everyday stuff
-Some areas are understaffed, some overstaffed, again, due to explosive growth. This is working itself out over time though
-Too much! Way too easy to get overcommitment if you have trouble saying no.

Advice to Management

In general, management is doing a good job at positioning the company for long term growth. There are some bumps, but overall, doing well.

    Pros

    Work from home most of the time, benefits are fine.

    Cons

    Upper management is a group of backstabbing, unethical, secretive bunch of phony elitists!
    Management can't decide on the direction of the company.
    EMC has too much negative influence on the company. Do it the EMC way or hit the highway is VCE motto!
    No promotional opportunities unless you worked at EMC prior to VCE.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the entire VCE Board and Executive Team and start over or sell the company to Apple where the management team is well run and respected.


  2. No matter how much VCE has grown, it still continues to feel like a start up. LOTS of opportunities to grow!

    Pros

    You can take on as much responsibility as you manage. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Considerable support to grow profesasionally.

    Cons

    LOTS of work to always do. While the work is fun, it feels never ending.

    Company needs to have more fun and celebrate its successes much more!

    Advice to Management

    More team building! Weve grown so fast, you don't know others on your teams.
