Rampant mis-management, ironically single-track focused, lack of agility in work environment, easily pigeonholed

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere. Fringe benefits are amazing; Soda, snacks, lunch on Fridays, breakfast on Wednesday. Great place to work!

    Cons

    Growing very fast means that there are a lot of new people that you do not know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. I love working here!

    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.
