Pros

VMware as a company is great. Superb innovations from most corners of the company. The engineers are super smart. The campus has been fully updated and it is beautiful. The company is incredibly environmentally conscious, this is great!!

Cons

The EUC management team continues to be not up to par. There are several VPs who should be fired immediately for the following reasons: 1. Frequent and regular deceptive practices and lying to employees 2. Unbelievably blatant cronyism favoring certain employees 3. Lack of market understanding. Still completely clueless about why the competition is leading 4. Sabotage employees career growth because of self insecurity 5. Absolutely no accountability on performances Therefore, strongly recommend that you do not join the EUC business unit at all cost until they once again clean house.

Advice to Management

Senior management at EUC had better fix the internal problems ASAP or risk losing some of the best talents. The morale within the team is at an all time low due to the fact that a couple of VPs are all about themselves and their cronies. These VPs are all too willing (and are already working) to jeopardize the entire business in order to satisfy their own benefits. Enough talk about how Jack Welch should be the model. Time to take concrete actions. Eliminate these bozo VPs before it is too late.

    Pros

    Opened a lot of doors. Fast-paced, dynamic organization when I worked there (2008-2012). Many perks to retain talent.

    Cons

    Some unqualified people were promoted to upper management. Most of that have been removed now.

    Advice to Management

    Career growth


  2. Great Technology, but overall a mixed bag to work for...

    Pros

    Great access to technology and chance to work with some very smart people. Good Compensation. Company is always so good exposure to ecosystem and like-minded products.

    Cons

    Internal processes are not mature at all due to rapid growth. Not enough collaboration yet between internal (business units, development) and client-facing roles (consultants, sales engineers). Employee enablement for growth is very sparse. Middle management not effective. Depending on the group you work for, can be very cliquey.

    Advice to Management

    Need to clarify personal / career growth tracks @ VMware. Knowing the "what" is ok, however need to expand on the "how to get there". Especially there are some very mixed messages on PSO side (enablement is supported, however keep utilization high. Register for classes, however more often than not enrollment is dropped at last moment).
