Worst IT shop anywhere

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsNice campus, stock is stable, products are well known

ConsVery poor (across the board) IT senior management team. The most political environment anywhere. Long hours are the norm. It's a sweatshop. Everything is an emergency, complete lack of planning and structure. IT culture is poor, everyone is afraid to speak up. Without a doubt, staff would leave if not for RSUs. Would rank at less than one star if the option was there.

Advice to Senior ManagementStabilize the IT environment. Hire a real CIO and support him/her. It's too much of a revolving door. A lot of good people have been fired for purely political reasons.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Micromanaged to oblivion.

    I worked at VMware full-time for more than a year


    Pros: VMware provides great benefits/perks, but then again most companies do? Cons: Micromanagement. Projects and decision making move slower than mud. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
