Company has grown fast and infrastructure needs to catch up. Lots of smart people.

Senior Program Manager (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsVMware is full of nice, smart people. The average age is not too young, which means people give importance to having a balanced life. The VMware Foundation shows that the company cares about more than just making money. Employees are given five days per year to use volunteering at non-profit organizations.

ConsCompany has grown fast and IT processes are sometimes medieval. Sometimes, things get done only by working around the established processes.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in IT. It's ridiculous that a company this size has to postpone simple fixes to systems used manage Channel Programs, Customer Support, and other key functions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
