Current Employee - Vice President in Palo Alto, CA

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

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The 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

    Pros

    Healthy support structure for personal and technical issues. Very responsive logistics and HR staff that typically resolve questions or issues within hours.Very reasonable health care and related. Very competitive pay. Food is often served for local vendors and the kitchens are stocked with snacks and drinks.

    Cons

    The pace if very fast and learning the products and all related subjects needed to do your day to day job is like drinking from a fire hose.

    Pros

    Fantastic technologies and products
    Lots of smart people
    Excellent work environment and free foods
    You are not paid less because you have not asked for more or you were under-paid before in other company, as long as you can do it

    Cons

    Growing too fast now, processes are not in place, it's up to individual contributor's QOS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the vision and execution
