The magic went away.

Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsStill some good technology, competitive compensation and some very smart co-workers (and some not so smart).

ConsThere is too much middle management that are not good managers (micro managers). No clear direction now that VMware core products have reached saturation. New products are in mature markets or add little value.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees inside the company will soon lose their motivation because it is hard to work with clueless people. There is no real career path outside Palo Alto. Listen (and Act) to employee feedback.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Restructuring has apparently happened a few too many times. Coworkers generally older - mean age somewhere in the 30s… Advice to Senior Management: Hire younger if possible. Try to keep things steadier and define vision in a clearer way rather than keep… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
