    Pros

    I mainly work at VMware because of the technology we build. The cloud vision is a great vision and working towards that goal is great.

    Cons

    The company moves fast, and changes things often. This can be difficult if your experience is mainly with large process-driven companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is really important to think about culture and hiring standards, both are really important to the long term success.

    Pros

    Awesome technology
    Senior level management are at the top of their game
    Arguably the Smartest CEO in the industry
    Great people in the trenches
    Most people are willing to go out of their way to help.
    Training and enablement is readily available.

    Cons

    Cronyism and nepotism runs rampant
    Opportunities to advance your career are limited
    Some account managers are absolutely clueless when it comes to the concept of "solution selling"
    Mid-level management leaves a lot to be desired.
    Changing comp plans are making it more difficult to make money.
    Post-sales is not respected by the pre-sales organization.
    Too EMC re-treads have brought the baggage to VMware; everyone knows EMC culture and unhappy employees are synonymous

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget Microsoft, forget Citirix, disgruntled employees and attrition is Vmware's biggest competition. Please hire a consulting company to review, evaluate, and restructure the way the company looks after it's valued employees. There are a lot of good people that are extremely frustrated with the way things work. Just because someone is good at their job does not make them an effect leader.
