    Pros

    Good compensation and great benefits. Very flexible and casual work place. Working here is fun, most of the time (and depending on your role/team). The legacy-Telligent team members are AMAZING, but legacy-Zimbra team members are more difficult to work with.

    Cons

    Can be very frustrating, and difficult to get certain things done due to bottle-necking in management, and LOTS of budget constraints.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with communication and transparent from the executive level.

  3. Liked working with talented people, all the way up to management.

    Pros

    Humble management, cooperative and helpful co-workers, no turf wars, smart people. Everyone is doing their best and no one is pushing employees over the limits (well, over startup limits)

    Cons

    It is a startup, so be prepared to pull your weight, occasionally work on weekends and long hours. If you are not getting your job done well, you'll get fired quickly.

    Not a startup anymore. Decisions are being made at higher level at VMWare.

    Be more agile
