    I have been working at VMware full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    pay is okay, fun & innovative products, technology and tools are great, helpful collegues

    Cons

    micro-managed, make you feel guilty if you take time off, management team treats the sales staff like children, 9+ hour work days, stressful atmosphere, "Dell-like" atmosphere = micro-managed, commissions are not as fruitful as they used to be, sales floor is like a depressing call center, terrible work/life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop treating the sales staff like children, stop micro-managing and paying attention to metrics as a gauge of productivity, bring back the fun and work hard/play hard mentality and you will have more happy & productive employees, look at Dell and learn from it, not copy it - it didn't work there, whey would it work at VMW?
