      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.

      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!

      Pros

      Learn a lot about a different range of technologies.

      Cons

      Management. Lack of leadership. Very flat structure. Company doesn't value you as an employee, only the customer brands they gain. No work life balance.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your staff and show value in their opinions.
