    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    benefits, salary
    leading edge technology, autonomy, free product training if you can find the time to do, employee recognition program

    Cons

    No work/life balance
    Processes and internal IT infrastructure not established to support tremendous employee growth (i.e. access to available technology tools, communications, training, divisional contacts)
    Lack of HR support
    Constant change without communication or contribution from internal or external stakeholders
    HR positions VMware as a collaborative team environment but it is very siloed -
    Management is very tactical and does not support the requirements of the department in order to work efficiently.
    Managers get promoted without sufficient people management training or leadership skills
