Pros

Fascinating, industry-changing product, continuous innovation, and lots of great, smart co-workers.

Cons

The company grew so fast that it's still trying to catch up with itself & put in place processes and structures befitting its size.

Advice to Management

Treat the non-engineering staff as well as you treat the engineering staff!

    "If you're not an engineer beware of what you're getting into with VMware! If you're in marketing steer clear!"

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology -- great technical environment. Ton of industry respect and enthusiastic customer base.

    Cons

    VERY engineering centric environment that totally disrespects the role of marketing, product management, support functions. Total disregard for traditional human resources support infrastructure including significant nepotism and rewards for "yes" men. Complete lack of respect for individual input, initiative and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Best thing that has happened to VMware is the dismissal of Diane Greene. Company needs to come to grips with an increasingly competitive landscape and stop micro-managing everyone. Nepotism must stop. Got to start recognizing and rewarding good employees instead of kiss-ass employees. Additional management beheadings are necessary.

    High Travel. Over reaction to common buiness anomolies. Not managing our rapid onset of big compant disease.

    Advice to Management

    Get away from EMC. Get a coherent maketing strategy in place and take it to the market we sell to.
