I have been working at VMware

Pros

- great people, the smart ones are still here
- the vision is amazing, very few can make it as far as we have and even fewer have the focus we do on completing that vision

Cons

at the lower ranks, it's not clear the right people are getting promoted. With more and more people, it's just harder to get stuff done. More political boundaries and fewer end to end accountability.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There was a time when getting stuff done was what we held people accountable to. Now it's about "smart thinking" but the actual execution is almost an after-thought. Time to hold everyone (including GMs and VPs) accountable instead to the goals they set out to do.
