    Approves of CEO

    I worked at VMware full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is a company that genuinely cares about the communities it operates in and it's team members. Plenty of investment in upskilling staff and has a solid medium term strategy and roadmap.

    Cons

    There is still come baggage from being so successful in the HyperVisor space and gaining access to Executives is at times challenging when that legacy is still what you are known for with end user executives.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the transition to SaaS despite the pain that will come with this.

      Negative Outlook
      No Opinion of CEO

      I worked at VMware full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Technology is solid, customer base is loyal.

      Cons

      New sales management completely changed the corporate culture for the worse. Account lists are shrinking as the quotas continue to grow. Corporate message confusing and disjointed. Sales leadership is vain, underwhelming and only at the company to raise the stock price. VMware has lost the mojo and is now a toxic place.

      Advice to Management

      Go and ruin another company.

      Pros

      Hot industry, disruptive technology, great people, great solution, great experience great ability to earn significant money, great product

      Cons

      Dell Acquisition, somewhat legacy thinking that sales must be done in the office. More Pro's than Con's

      Advice to Management

      Employees can achieve success in a variety of ways and should be celebrated even if it's opposed to traditional/legacy ideals.

      Pros

      Solid product, great support from corporate, and in general they do seem to care about their employees.

      Cons

      Seems like making good sales and good profits are not enough, they want unrealistic hyper growth. Sales management seems to set quotas too high these days, and now they cap comp if you do have a great year. Be happy with realistic growth and not push for unrealistic growth.

      Advice to Management

      Go back to a sales first culture where the sales teams are appreciated for the hard work they do.
