    I worked at VMware full-time

    Pros

    Mature, experienced tech company with many amazing products under its belt. Flexible working arrangements, travel opportunities. Culture is mostly positive and vibrant.

    Cons

    Far too focused on revenue and numbers rather than their customers' satisfaction or employee development. Work/life balance can easily slip if you let it. Career progression is possible, but very difficult as middle management never move.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time nurturing your staff and making them the best they can be rather than how many billable hours you can get out of them. Focus on customer satisfaction.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, very good benefits, good work life balance, down to earth genuine culture.Very little politics and you can just get on and get things done. New MD has made some really positive change. New GB Leader is really dynamic, great female role model & really improving the partner approach

    Cons

    In the regions it is smaller so therefore can be harder to progress your career in the traditional sense, however there are lots of tools and scope for you to choose your own adventure as they tend to be more flexible than some of the other big vendors. Very little negatives!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    The technology and vision is fantastic, its exciting and transformative. The flexibility in work means you can manage life as well as your job and you get to work on global projects to diversify your talents.

    Cons

    It's very US centric, outside regions come 2nd best. The structure is flat so there is little career opportunity for leadership and its again very US centric when selecting leaders. The recent announcements have left uncertainty for people.
