StarStarStarStarStar
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Small teams
Good benefits
Decent pay
CFO who seems genuinely interested in implementing a rotation program
Managers who try to support a work life balance

Cons

Upward moves within finance are difficult. The work load burns many analysts out within the first year thus leading to high turnover.
Operations is not very supportive of finance and rarely invites them to a seat at the table.

Advice to Management

Work to ease the workload on your analyst so they want to stay and grow with the company

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

    Pros

    Great market leading technology and very aggressive compensation and benefit packages.

    Cons

    Your experience will vary depending on management. Seems like because of the explosive growth, some managers got into management just because they were at the right place at the right time and not because of management capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Some management needs to realize they manage people and not just sales numbers. Because the company is growing a lot of these managers do not have visibility to the higher ranks, but bewared of turnover and morale challenges that are hiding behind a great quarter performance.


  2. "Great Employer, Bad at Acquisitions"

    I worked at VMware full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great growth potential, innovative.

    Cons

    Gobbles up and spits out acquisitions

    Advice to Management

    Please think about your acquisition strategy before bringing on loads of people you don't intend to keep around. Companies are more than just a technology, they're full of people whose livelihoods depend on those jobs.
