    Approves of CEO

    I worked at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Structured process, well defined and easy to focus on selling as there is lots of support teams to help drive sales deals

    Cons

    Majority of leaders are more focussed managing up the food chain than looking after employees Expensive products against some of the competitors, and they dont seem to be evalgalising the technology only buying out new companies with the hope they return to where they were in 2007! Dell buyout was a business decision but VMware would have been a much better business had they backed themselves quicker to growth than tagging with Dell who are archaic at best! Focus on the customer. Half of what I sold was put into the deal that was never required but really expensive. Be truthful - put customer first for once instead of pocket

    Pros

    Great working environment and opportunities. Friendly staff and they genuinely try to look after their staff/ask for their feedback more than many other compaies.

    Cons

    I can't think of any real cons, apart from potentially room to grow in the company after a number of years. However I'm sure with more acquisitions, it will offer more opportunities in the future.
