I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great enthusiasm, strong culture, positive atmosphere. Strong appreciative client base. Tremendous growth opportunities in EMEA and Asia Pacific so the company still have tremendous upside.

Cons

Weak management, poor communication, political hierarchy tacking shape with ineffective. job defensive mindset beginning to invade Director and above psyche - reminiscent of Microsoft circa 1998-2002. Client base beginning to dig deeper in VMware value proposition, awareness of competitive offerings. Companies looking to ensure they don't become too "imbedded" and dependent on 1 particular vendor, and VMware suffering from that perception.

Advice to Management

Establish an enterprise sales culture, to much focus on "the number" not how to effectively up skill the field resources to be able to achieve "the number". Far too many messages from corporate that confuse VMware's real strengths and direction. Messaging about Pivotal its relationship VMware & EMC weakens current VMware positioning. The 900 lay offs were a sign that the company cares more about Wall Street perception that its employees, and the manner on which it was executed and communicated was amateur.
