Good people and a great product.

New comp plans are putting caps on earnings and starting to phase down comp.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your sales force is coin operated. Your sales are only as strong as your sales team's moral. Case Study: see Dell Inc.

    Pros

    Great technology
    Definitely one of the most visionary CEOs in the industry
    Great under valued people in the field that put in all the work e.g. SEs, PSCs, TAMs
    Great training on VMware products is easily available

    Cons

    Acquisition is occurring at a very fast rate with little to no near term integration, make it very difficult to talk about products outside of the core product and paint an integrated story. The company seems to be VERY worried about Microsoft.
    Career advancement is very limited.
    The majority of mid-level to senior-level management within the Reston office are ex-EMC from the old EMC. The have brought over the unhappy work culture with them.
    Comp plans change half way through the year and are getting tighter and tighter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate office should look into changing the senior-level management in the Reston office.
    The culture needs to change. Good employees are becoming frustrated with management.
