Great opportunities - tough times ahead though

Operations (Current Employee)

ProsI've been here a while - have seen through multiple CEOs and the company has grown rapidly with many opportunities. Product sells itself and a fairly fun environment (in the beginning) - lots of new whitespace to attack and have an opportunity to define the cloud computing space.

ConsLost a lot of the innovation and have been too complacent regarding competitors. Workplace is becoming more political and egos are getting in the way of strategy and innovation. Career opportunities are not that great either for the old timers

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Amazing technology to work. Rich technical resources to gain knowledge. Cons: Frequent Management changes Frequent policy/Strategy change Advice to Senior Management: Keep the middle management number lesser possible, as the strategy is getting diversified because of the depth in hierarchy. Give more… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
