    Smart energetic finance people

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at VMware

    Pros

    Small teams
    Good benefits
    Decent pay
    CFO who seems genuinely interested in implementing a rotation program
    Managers who try to support a work life balance

    Cons

    Upward moves within finance are difficult. The work load burns many analysts out within the first year thus leading to high turnover.
    Operations is not very supportive of finance and rarely invites them to a seat at the table.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to ease the workload on your analyst so they want to stay and grow with the company

    I worked at VMware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, great growth potential, innovative.

    Cons

    Gobbles up and spits out acquisitions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please think about your acquisition strategy before bringing on loads of people you don't intend to keep around. Companies are more than just a technology, they're full of people whose livelihoods depend on those jobs.
