Hope Diane going doesn't ruin it

Senior Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at VMware

ProsIt's fun and rewarding. Tests you but gives back as well.

ConsYou work hard and it can still be frustrating finding the 'right' person to talk to sometimes.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't change what Diane started. Staff will not take well to being more aggressive a'la EMC.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Invest in the people whilst we have the lead

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at VMware

ProsCustomers like to work with us, lots of opportunities for going in new directions.

ConsLack of support from management in terms of resource to make things happen... it's like you have to do it on your own, and what is stated as a priority by management is often not the way resources are allocated leading to conflict and paralysis.

Information management is abysmal, and lack of co-ordination across teams is laughable.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork better together and the rest of the company might do the same: and please FUND initiatives to match your words.
