Pros

Industry leading product, lots of opportunity to do new projects, programs and try new things. Bonuses and stock options for top performers. Everyone here is an A player, high achiever.

Cons

Chaotic workload and processes. Difficult to get promoted from within as open spots typically filled from outside the company. Very competitive internally.

    Pros

    Colleagues/peers are great - friendly and knowledgeable. Product Development and Product Marketing colleagues are smart and strategic.

    Cons

    New management - promoted from within are very poor at managing people and are VERY unprofessional. I saw people "chewed' out in front of other colleagues. No training for new employees and contractors. Very high pressure environment with very little support from anyone except your colleagues. Internal managers in partner enablement and other departments think they know about partner management and sales but they do not. "White tower" mentality here and it is hurting VMware.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. You are coming late to the party with your Cloud solution. Listen to your partners and the Field before it is too late. Get rid of some of your New middle managers and old management that DO NOT CARE about people. People are leaving VMware in droves and not just because they want to work at a startup! Act now and LEAD and remove the dead weight managers!!
