Pros

The company is making adjustments to clean up a lot of the prior problems. For a recent IPO and shift in senior management team VMware is providing a great opportunity to work with not a lot of hand holding.

Cons

Gaining 15lbs in the first couple of months.

Advice to Management

Keep in touch with the employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - name is well known
    -products sells itself.
    -lion's share of the virtualization space

    Cons

    - The company has been built on a house of cards
    - Should be called "BEA part 2" - you're either "IN" or your out
    - top executives STILL there.
    - a lot of the best sales leadership were either pushed out due to arrogance at the executive level - or they left once they realized the place was a mad house and built of a house of cards

    Advice to Management

    VMware's days are numbered and will only survive if they can clean house internally.
