Great place to work, getting better with some changes.

Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) Palo Alto, CA

ProsBenefits package, work/life balance, bleeding-edge technology, snacks/drinks, onsite gym (HQ only), dental.

The benefits package is excellent and comprehensive. Management from top-down stresses a work-life balance, and strives to maintain it. As a leading software company, we have access to the absolute latest hardware and software provided by our partners. Free snacks/drinks in the cafeterias. At HQ, there is an onsite gym, and there's dental.

ConsThe current restructuring is leaving many confused and concerned about the future. This needs to be accelerated beyond normal bounds to ensure the company is successful. Communicating between departments has always seemed to be a weak point. This needs to get resolved. In addition, support from departments within the company need to be second-nature. We shouldn't have to beg for support from another department to get it.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet the restructuring done, get the company working together as a team, and we can do some fantastic work. I've been with the company for some time, and change as been the M.O. for VMware. We're getting closer to being a mature company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
