    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.

    I worked at VMware

    Pros

    Great people, fantastic ideas, good customers. Company provides good physical work environment and solid compensation. A pioneer in the field and respected

    Cons

    Newer products are not well integrated into the whole product set. Tries to hang on to the start-up culture but the business is beyond that and needs to grow up and become the mature organisation that it's customers need. Your experience will depend greatly on the quality of the management above you.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the products and understand the problems the customer is trying to solve. Be consistent in your decisions.
