Disapproves of CEO

I worked at VMware full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good compensation, interesting technology. Smart people at the execution level

Cons

1. Lack of executive leadership
2. HR department are free floaters that don't do anything
3. No work-life balance
4. Agreed, promotions are based on who you know and not what you do or how well you do it.
5. Executive management sit on a kings chair and don't really care if things are going well or not, and they don't want to hear anything.
6. Incompetent exec leadership

Advice to Management

draw your conclusions, if you care.

    Pros

    GREAT Benefits, It seems that every time I turn around, they improve benefits and add something else. Flexible work schedule, and working from home is great.

    Cons

    Work load is heavy. Communication is often lacking. But they are working on communication improvements.
