Great individual silo'ed efforts - no imbedded culture

Director (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at VMware

Pros- vSphere Customer base
- Paul Maritz is a visionary
- Stock price

Cons- Customer Operations and Finance is without leadership and experience - although VMW is a products company with great engineering - business operations execution and financial management is extremely weak
- Lack of teamwork and corporate culture

Advice to Senior ManagementEliminate the Office of the President and hire an experienced leader to motivate the troops - both engineering and sales.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros: + Nice headquarters campus with free snacks/beverages + Still some very smart people… Cons: - Top leadership team is not cohesive and they have each brought in their own cronies from past companies - Top leaders are not held accountable… Advice to Senior Management: You need a solid top leadership team that truly complements each other and holds each… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
