    Current Employee - Sales Representative

    I have been working at VMware

    Pros

    Best cloud solution and strong executive management vision
    Industry potential is almost blue sky and vision is getting clearer and crisper
    Great benefits and nice peers

    Cons

    Limited progression - the local HR prefers to hire outside than promote from within
    Limited development opportunities - need progression paths
    Poor executive management - as above and why are we planning for next year when I don't even know what we planned to do this current year?
    Too many managers and arrogant HR function

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after the number one asset in the company - no matter what position
    Have more defined progression paths for employees
    Less focus on quarterly targets and long term sustainability of our market leadership
    HR need to walk the talk - focus on people

    Managment Bloat and a focus on education over ability

    Pros

    VMware still fosters open communication, although senior management don't seem to be listening. Despite the management bloat, innovation still happens.

    Cons

    The focus on paper education over actual ability is infuriating. It seems that everyone who makes Director or above did so simply because they have an MBA. Conference calls tend to sound like a bad game of buzz word bingo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You give out the title Director so frequently that it has started to lose value. Stop letting HR determine titles to justify salaries.
