    I have been working at AirWatch full-time

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere with excellent facilities.
    Good internal training material and facilities.
    Generous funding per annum to go learn something new.
    Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Career growth may be slow if you don't stand out among peers personality wise.
    Demands long hours of work, however, commitment is recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Make half yearly externships, company-wide, mandatory for every team member. Such hands-on exposure is necessary for personal growth.

    I have been working at AirWatch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work with hard working people. Was exciting to work at a start up. VMware acquisition brought great benefits.

    Cons

    Management still very reactive and tactical instead of strategic. Not really a part of VMware yet.

    Advice to Management

    Allow work from home

    Pros

    Hot industry, disruptive technology, great people, great solution, great experience great ability to earn significant money, great product

    Cons

    Dell Acquisition, somewhat legacy thinking that sales must be done in the office. More Pro's than Con's

    Advice to Management

    Employees can achieve success in a variety of ways and should be celebrated even if it's opposed to traditional/legacy ideals.

    Cons

    I like the way airwatch handles the mdm for apple products. Paired with Content Locked it is a secure convenient way to track and deliver information to users securely.

    Pros

    The company has a good culture overall and they offer good benefits. They do try their best to have a decent work/life balance and you also get to work with new technology.

    Cons

    Despite their effort at a good work life/balance, it can be a very hectic environment due to constantly changing priorities and objectives which can lead to stress. They also in the past have tended to underpay their employees for their actual role by hiring employees at lower paying role and then transferring them into a higher paying role. This has started to change with VMWare, but it is still a tactic they utilize.

    I have been working at AirWatch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, the stock is doing really well and the opportunity to learn VMware technologies that will eventually enable me to work for my own self. Great co-workers: smart and driven.

    Cons

    - Bad managers
    - Huge trust deficit
    - Scathing emails are regularly sent
    - Managers do not know how to communicate
    - Some AirWatch managers in position of power do not understand basic business principles either, talk about cannibalizing other teams' services without realizing
    - Southern culture sadly permeates this office: conscious and unconscious bias is on full display, respect for minorities severely lacking

    Advice to Management

    Realize that learning is a life-long process and that they too need to learn from the people that they manage and via educational opportunities (optional or mandatory) within the company that will make them better managers and people.
