Great People, Brilliant Technology

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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.

    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
