The agony and the extasy

Vice President (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat vision for dominating the next generation of data centers through virtualization + automation = cloud computing.

ConsOften inconsistent execution as individual teams pursue their short term strategies at the cost of the overall corporate vision.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe shift from vision-driven CEO Paul Maritz to execution-driven CEO Pat Gelsinger is a great opportunity for the company to transform its vision to real market leadership

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
