Enterprise Account Manager (Current Employee), AustinJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: free snacks, lunches, beer on fridays, sodas.
Cons: micro management, culture
Overall a great company but the Austin office really needs to focus on culture and bring the amazing culture from Palo Alto. The management is definitely micro management which makes it hard for a majority of their sales floor. It is simple, allow your employees to enjoy their job and the results will show, I am not sure why every employer has not figured – more... this one out. – less

VMWare is a company trying to find a new direction
Territory Account Manager (Former Employee), Austin, TXOctober 9, 2013
Pros: working with the most talented sales people in the industry
Cons: managements verbal abuse of subordinates in front of their peers
A typical day at work involved calling on end users and partners to drive VM Ware business. This was a hybrid role that included on site customer visits.

I learned how to work effectively with partners end users and internal resources to drive complex sales in the mid market. I also learned how to qualify real deals thereby achieving mandated growth – more... objectives.

Management at that time seemed to be in denial about the possibility that VMware had maximized it's existing market potential. And in the process offered new solutions that were not as effective as those offered by the competition.

The hardest part of the job was preparing for the detailed weekly forecast calls. Management was quick tempered and as a consequence forecast calls were geared to avoid conflict by providing overly optimistic information.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with some of the most talented sales people in the business, and getting in front of customers and finding out about their real business needs and concerns. – less
