    Lots of cliques and infighting. All the liabilities of a start up and an established company.

    Pros

    flexible hours
    average pay
    average benefits
    some ability to move between groups - assuming you can network the move ahead of time
    still looks good on a resume

    Cons

    vision is gone
    penny pinching has set in
    one hour of discussions required per minute of actual work accomplished
    rules by Excel spreadsheets that govern each fiefdom
    no reward for loyalty - the longer you stay the more likely you'll wind up on the purge list
    no training unless its on your own time

    Advice to Management

    Try to stick with a plan longer than it took to come up with it.
    Leading the industry only works as long as the industry actually follows.
    Try taking a survey after an "all hands" meeting and see how many attendees actually understood what you were trying to convey.

    Pros

    Great people in the field on license sales, services sales, and delivery teams. Higher than usual positive feedback on Support response to customers.

    Lots of innovation on the product side and willingness to balance organic growth of products with acquisitions.

    Cons

    Ability to earn is becoming more and more challenging with the significant increases in targets
    Rapid growth in the size of the middle management layer - TOO MANY
    I know there is politics in every org but VMware managers take it to another level
