    Pros

    Excellent product, Free coffee, Good on a resume.

    Cons

    Politics: most managers do not have skills, whether they are technical or interpersonal. They are just bad. HR are puppets. They will promise you a good progression path when they interview you, then you will become a number the day you start. HR will have absolutely no shame admitting you are a number. If you see a lot of job offers, do not believe it is becasue the company is expanding: it is just because there is a huge turnover in the workforce.

    VMware is not an IT company. VMware does finance, and you are way too expensive so they dont pay commissions. VMware will change your commission plan without your agreement, or even decide you should not be paid on some orders if they suddenly consider they are too big for you to be responsible for anything. Your manager will have the comissions, not you.

    Poor work/life balance: whatever you do is just never enough. VMware does not care about customers, does not care about employees: VMware cares about money, period. Employees are not mentioned in the VMware core values, so it says a lot about what they think of you. You are disposable and that is just good enough.

    You will evolve in a .XLS environment with a lot of micro management and threats of personal improvement plans. Management gets close friend with HR to cover their ass. They will only interview you because they cant get everything relocated to India yet.

    VMware does "virtual", so dont expect anything real or concrete. VMware is a trusted advisor when it comes to the products, but is a really bad employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop caring about you and only you. you are nothing without your employees. You should remember you have no skills, no talent, no vision. You are just good at politics. the EMEA headquarter is a nightmare, and that's because of you. No wonder you have fancy cars, taking commissions away form the sales teams.

    Pros

    not much, but there is free coffee and a nice view onto the irish country side. Good on a resume because other employers know vm is a terrible employer

    Cons

    You will be promised many things. Managers should not be managers. HR are puppets. You will not get your commissions. VMware does not do IT, VMware does finance and in that concern you are too expensive, so the company will not pay you. Too many matrix. Micro management. Very disappointing experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Face the truth : you should not be a manager, not even a team lead. Managers ought to care about they team: you dont.
