Pros

Salary is high compared to other companies in Austin
Beer, Taco, and Wing Fridays
People work here because they want to - not because they have to

Cons

"Legacy" salesreps are getting lazy
Training is not as good as we'd like

Advice to Management

Plan for new-hires. The current onboarding plan is meh. We need to spend more time getting the new people up to where they need to be to contribute. Also - don't lose the "startup" freebies like free food, drinks, etc. Those are the reasons why people tell their friends they should work here.

    Pros

    A great product with a real ROI for customers. Leadership has heart and true vision. Leadership truly cares for the team. I have worked for many companies but VMware just keeps on getting better

    Cons

    Growing fast so at times infrastructure falls behind. At time you loose time dealing with the issues associated with lack of internal systems to support day to day tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep thinking out of the box!

    Pros

    Great campus, customers and products. People are passionate about the the technology.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. A lot of smart, unrecognized people led by not-so-capable leadership. There seems to be a huge gap between who general employees recognize as great and who leadership recognizes as great. Those that are good at managing up wins.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be fooled by employees that are good at managing up. Take time to get to know, listen and recognize the employees that are looked up to by their peers.
