      Positive Outlook
      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.

        I have been working at VMware full-time for more than a year

        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!
