Featured Review

Current Employee - Sales Consultant

I have been working at Applied Systems full-time for less than a year

Pros

Incredible company at the forefront of its industry. Great pay, incredible leadership, and very collaborative environment even in a remote position.

Cons

Lack of thorough training, could use better alignment on processes/operations. Product bundles are a bit confusing to navigate effectively as a sales team.

"10/10 recommend"May 24, 2022

Current Employee - Member of Technical Staff II

I have been working at VMware full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great salary, great benefits (401k, well-being reimbursements, team outings, ESPP), great potential for bonuses depending on your job area. Team probably matters the most for your individual... experience. My team is wonderful, encourages finding learning/growth opportunities, and takes advantage of the unlimited PTO. VMware encourages good work/life balance, taking time off, taking holidays, etc, although plenty of employees work more than 40 hours/week by choice.

Cons

Feels like a big company and it just keeps growing. Because of this there's a lot of re-orgs and management changes. Now there's talk of being acquired which could be a disaster.

Advice to Management

Don't let us get bought out by an even bigger company! We like the values and company culture of VMware. Don't let them change.
