Pros

Cutting Edge Products
Biggest Market Share - Virtulization/Cloud
25000 Partners w97% of fortune 500 as customers
Internal communication platforms are great for collaboration

Cons

Fast paced environment with a very entrepreneurial feel, which is good and bad. Travel policy is a lot less lenient than the consulting firm I came from.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Haven't been here long enough to tell but it seems like upper management leaves the micro managing to you and they worry about the macro. They are very interested in your professional growth and will let you know when you've done a good job.

    Pros

    - Great technology
    - Great brand
    - Good push to enable employee innovation
    - good spot reward system
    - Great employee ecosystem

    Cons

    - Quality of people now being hired is not as great
    - Performance evaluation does not allow reportees to feedback on manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the push to enable employees to innovate and contribute to the ecosystem, both inside and outside. Please enable people in non-US countries to contribute as much as the ones on the US campus.
