    I worked at AirWatch full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I worked at AirWatch full-time

    Pros

    - Good salary. You are paid more than what you do
    - Decent benefits
    - If you like a 9 to 5 job, this is a perfect place

    Cons

    Glassdoor should not worry about the 5 word minimum, since there is plenty to say here.

    - Very politically toxic environment
    - Lots of nepotism. Positions are opened up, but you already know who is getting it.
    - Most managers do not have a direction because their career itself does not have a direction
    - Even the basic things which you need to make your job more productive are provided. You have to literally plead for things

    Note: This is not VMware, but AirWatch management.

    Advice to Management

    Higher management from VMware needs to look into the mismanagement what local AirWatch managers are up to.

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

    Pros

    good salary and benefits
    good top management

    Cons

    Politics, favoritism, survival of the most manipulative and power hungry.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at your newly minted managers and directors.They seem to have lost it.If you ask for something you deserve, you will be retaliated against. Anti immigrant sentiments can be clearly felt if not voiced, again depends on particular teams. The unconscious bias training doesn't work when it is conscious.

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits. They were starting to allow for some flexibility and working remote.

    Cons

    Management is often under qualified in the sales arena. All metric-driven, not a lot of room for strategy selling in SMB or Mid-Market. Base pay low.

    Pros

    The inside sales team (who's made it through many rounds of layoffs) is a very close group of people which makes it a fun atmosphere to work. Great perks of being a part of VMware. Excellent benefits and culture. Best of breed product set and great brand recognition!

    Cons

    With any acquisition, there have been countless rounds of territory mapping and shifting to align with Vmware and and DELL. Middle level management spend 90% of their day learning and battling against new internal processing as internal systems and processes are ALWAYS changing. There is no clear path for internal growth in the Atlanta inside sales department, however, there's an internal team working towards a path to success.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out an internal path for growth, hire BDRs/admins for SMB deals so reps can focus on larger ops.
