    A massive change towards discouraging, limiting possibilities, caused by non-visionaire average managers.

    Pros

    VMware still is the market leader for virtualization - but that's about it.

    Cons

    - worst call centre experience ever, after a startup mood and empowering in the past things have changed towards metrics only. Visions and ideas are suppressed and not followed upon you report into a black hole and get no feedback unless you ping a VP or senior director directly.

    - wording to be used dictated, no freedom of speech, no adoption to customer needs, improvement suggestions land in a back hole.

    - the Vision and spirit in this company is gone

    - workers are currently approaching unions about conditions

    - It still pays of get intimate with leaders, in order to progress in ones career

    Advice to Management

    empower employees, give timely feedback on improvement ideas and general feedback. Get rid of medium class middle managers. Do not allow them with their average thinking and compromising culture to make VMware drown in the long term. I have seen loads of high quality employees leaving in the last weeks, because of the change in culture.
