Enterprise Account Executive - (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAOctober 10, 2018
They are pivoting a bit like a lot of the big boys and I believe doing it well. Great reputation, great products and a pillar in the SW community. Can't go wrong.

Sr. SDDC Delivery Consultant (Current Employee) –  Home Based - Travel to ClientsOctober 10, 2018
Nothing specific here, great place to work, as a consultant, every day varies, but can have its peaks and valleys of busy time. Don't really get to see my team much but everyone is smart and willing to help.

Great Company
Regional Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAOctober 7, 2018
Travel for outside reps is over 60%. There isn't much of a work life balance. Goals have become unattainable over the past year. Management treats people as just a number which is changing the culture of the company. Pay is very good.

Great Place to Work
Principal Solution Architect, TAM (Former Employee) –  Greater Chicago AreaSeptember 18, 2018
VMware is a great environment to work in. They offer alot of opportunities for advancement and growth. The culture is very diverse and open...they try to ensure that all individuals and groups have a say and feel embraced.

They are a large organization, but you still feel a part of the experience even if you are working in the field.
Pros
Great Environment, Excellent benefits and pay
Cons

suck-fest, but okay if you want to sellout
Application support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Littleton, COSeptember 16, 2018
So, this place is fast paced, has incompetent managers, and a good staff. There are good people throughout the organization, but I saw a lot of good techs burned by really bad middle managers. I think, if one can suck it up for 6 mos, they'll do okay, but is the stress worth it?
Pros
certifications
Cons
busy, too busy

Challenging
Project Finance Manager - IT (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CASeptember 11, 2018
Very high demand company, should work several extra hours a week. But they have weekly beer bash which is good culture.

Not a great place to work for family person, but awesome place to work for single person with high ambition.

Great advancement opportunities if you have passion, ambition
Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, COSeptember 4, 2018
After on boarding, working as a Technical Support Engineer is demanding due to the complex product offerings, interactions with other products from VMware and technology partners, and the incoming request volume. Direct management is equally busy with tactical issues, and cannot provide strategic career guidance. Finding time for side projects is challenging, but gains you valuable recognition and advancement opportunities over peers that simply manage cases. Identifying a mentor for guidance and advocacy is critical. #TWW
Pros
Advancement opportunities, brilliant mentors, free yogurt
Cons
Demanding pace, lackluster management, bad coffee

Leader (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAAugust 24, 2018
There are too many people wanting different things in their specific way, but no one wants to help piece it all together. Bad behavior is consistently allowed causing burn out rate to be HIGH.

Difficult place to work
Group Manager Corporate Demos (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAAugust 24, 2018
It was a tough four years there. To see the CEO escorted out, badge removed, and just fired in the most inhumane way was heart breaking. It shouldn't have surprised me when they did the same thing to their Corporate Marketing group. So much back stabbing was taking place that I just can't recommend anyone working there.
Pros
Good products and great customers.
Cons
Poor management and spotty enginering processes.
