    Pros

    VMware is a fantastic example of how an established company provides the employee, the partner, and the customer the tools and environment of growth and sustainability. No matter what position a person holds within VMware, respect is a the key element to the company fabric. The goals are understood, which translates into a platform of creativity and a sense of belonging. I couldn't wait to get up in the morning and get to work to be in this environment that VMware provided. I've never felt so productive and successful with any other company.

    Cons

    The only minus to the company is how hard it is to get promoted. I'm concerned that they maybe losing brain trust because deserved promotions are far and few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think long-term regarding budgets which will support long-term growth. I understand a software company needs to follow the fluctuations of hardware companies, but, don't let solid talent and brain trust exit because of short-term goals. These people really don't want to leave VMware.
