Great experience as an MBA Intern

MBA Intern (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsExtremely smart people with impressive backgrounds throughout the company. People are willing to help and talk about their own experiences if you're proactive to schedule some time with them. I only have Finance perspective, but I never got the feeling that you would be "tied down" to a specific group or team, and rotations to other groups were encouraged.

ConsWith so much recent growth, there isn't much standardization between groups and it felt like there is a lot of catch up work to meet the growth.

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

    the future is uncertain, try again

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Palo Alto, CA

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: while not what it once was it is still an OK place to work. I don't hate coming to work, but I… Cons: Pat lacks the vision needed to drive the company forward. He may be good at focusing the companies efforts but what is he focusing them… Advice to Senior Management: Get rid of Pat and make Carl Eschenbach CEO. Even though Carl is a sales guy I think he has a clue of What VMware… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
