    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 Management

    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
