    Pros

    Leading edge technology, for now

    Cons

    Marketing is not in sync with industry perception that VMware equals innovation and thought leadership. Programs are nothing new and many are old school, traditional, brick and mortar marketing programs. Paul Maritz is great, but that's where the strong leadership ends. Everyone under him is subpar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers and employees. Ask for input. Really ask, not just check the box.
