    Pros

    Leader in virtualization industry; professional growth opportunities; culture, people and executive leadership team; fast paced environment

    Cons

    Poor leadership in Small to Midsize Business division with very "green" inside managers with no or limited experience in managing a team or true understanding of how to motivate their sales professionals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Inside Managers with proven leadership skills that have been demonstrated by previous experience

    Missleading, senior consultants are just staff augmentation

    Former Employee - Senior Software Architect in Menomonee Falls, WI
    Former Employee - Senior Software Architect in Menomonee Falls, WI

    I worked at VMware as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    High pay and while traveling, no expenses

    Cons

    VMWare doesn't position consultants well, all consultants become staff augmentation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to figure out who belongs where and what you're overall goal is. If you're looking just to make money, say that up front and advertise the positions as staff augmentation. If you want to build your brand, place your better/more experienced consultants closer to the key players, have stragegy meetings and follow up. For 6 months I heard from "home base" once!
