    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!
