I have been working at VMware full-time for more than a year

Pros

The pay is decent for the industry and the managers I have had were very supportive of my career growth plans. The people on my team are great.

Cons

The hours can be a bit long and they expect you to be willing to work as long and as hard as needed. If you do not work in headquarters your hours will be shifted to their time zone for meetings.

    I worked at VMware

    Pros

    Great place to work; rewarding as you are bringing a new technology to the market. It was a great feeling of upsetting competition in its early days. The Channels are very well defined, hence it helps projects the clarity of org distribution channel.

    Cons

    Not much flexibility to move with new roles to different geographies, which is how most MNCs should work upon to keep the workforce engaged, challenged and exposed. Compensation is not great and workload heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a vision and work on communicating more often to your employee. The various regions seem to work in silos.

    I worked at VMware full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Interesting Products, Customers are largely satisfied with VMware

    Cons

    Frustrating internal processes. Feedback from field ignored. Saturation of core products, and very slow adoption of non-core.

    Management completely disconnected from field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix severe problems with sales process and execution. Hire leaders rather than middle managers
