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

    Pros

    Great technology but now mostly not news in the marketplace

    Cons

    * Brain drain from the Exec level on down to the rank and file over the past 12 months * Promotions based on who you know rather than your performance and work merit

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example; hire people smarter than you; listen to your employees per surveys requested of your workforce

    I worked at VMware full-time

    Pros

    About 80% of former Dell staff makes up the Austin office now yet it is still a fun and relatively micro-management free If in a winning territory you can work hard and bring home good commissions Free food and drinks Games on site

    Cons

    - Lack of communication and direction - Some confusion on products and the multiple acquisition integration. - Poor customer support - Outdated internal systems - Unusual territory assignments (not based on historical data or what would make the most sense) -Unclear commissions to be paid and a system often flawed with errors - Manual processes and lack of automation internally

    Advice to Management

    Ducks in a row...communicate and lead. Focus on that bottom line and listening to the vital customers needs!
