    Approves of CEO

    I worked at VMware full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good technology all round. Sales kick off is good.

    Cons

    Politics are rampant, the policies are enforced based on your relationships with upper management. Lies and more lies, it seems the higher you get in the organization, the more people become untruthful. Good luck getting a VMworld pass..lol, you need to either present, work in lab or be on the floor in a booth.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of 2/3 of your management. It's funny that the supposed brain trust from Stanford and this is what you get - backstabbing employees.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    They pay higher then market rate.

    Cons

    The reason they pay higher then market rate, is because this is not a good place to work.

    The amount of politics at this job is outrageous. It is at least 3 times worst then anything you have ever experienced at previous jobs.

    Management does not support their teams, and will throw any team member under the bus if that is what it takes for the manager to not lose respect.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in professional managers and train them in the art respecting coworkers and working as a team.
