Pros

The best Product on the market - by far!!

They take care of you - if you put in the effort - it's a two way street.

Cons

We are the market leader (and rightly so) so everybody is trying to bring us down (unsuccessfully I might add...)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on Innovating and give us the opportunity to do so also.

    VMware is a great company to work for if you are smart and passionate about what you do.

    Pros

    Flexibility, working from home is an option. People are very smart, creative and innovative and passionate about what we do. The company has a lot of perks such as free snacks, soda, juice, coffee, candy. Beer Bashes. Fitness Classes, Yoga, great facilities. Compensation is very competitive, there is a bonus and stock options as well as an ESPP.

    Cons

    Like any public company there are trials and tribulations. After IPO in 2007, there have been a lot of challenges dealing with growth but I think it's worth hanging in there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more agile, tell the market and the world what our mission is, what is our purpose, create a road map and we will follow. Communication has been pretty terrible. We found out about our new CEO over the newswire, rather than an internal email. We did eventually get an email from the company but it was too little too late.

    Pros

    It's fun and rewarding. Tests you but gives back as well.

    Cons

    You work hard and it can still be frustrating finding the 'right' person to talk to sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change what Diane started. Staff will not take well to being more aggressive a'la EMC.
