    I have been working at VMware full-time

    Pros

    The technical people are sharp, the compensation is competitive, and HR tries hard to make it a fun place to work. Lunch is very good. Top-level executives seem in-tune with market needs and business requirements.

    Cons

    EUC marketing management is a disaster. There is a huge pressure for quantity of material, without much emphasis on quality. Very few opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the politics and focus on measuring the results of tactics and strategies. Hold managers accountable for their decisions.
