Pros

It is a great place to work. People are extremely smart and technical. Great pay masters. Great work/life balance.

Cons

They hired a lot of people over the last 2-3 years and lot of politics has creeped into the system. I hope they change and fix it soon.

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

    Pros

    Great enthusiasm, strong culture, positive atmosphere. Strong appreciative client base. Tremendous growth opportunities in EMEA and Asia Pacific so the company still have tremendous upside.

    Cons

    Weak management, poor communication, political hierarchy tacking shape with ineffective. job defensive mindset beginning to invade Director and above psyche - reminiscent of Microsoft circa 1998-2002. Client base beginning to dig deeper in VMware value proposition, awareness of competitive offerings. Companies looking to ensure they don't become too "imbedded" and dependent on 1 particular vendor, and VMware suffering from that perception.

    Advice to Management

    Establish an enterprise sales culture, to much focus on "the number" not how to effectively up skill the field resources to be able to achieve "the number". Far too many messages from corporate that confuse VMware's real strengths and direction. Messaging about Pivotal its relationship VMware & EMC weakens current VMware positioning. The 900 lay offs were a sign that the company cares more about Wall Street perception that its employees, and the manner on which it was executed and communicated was amateur.
