I have been working at VMware

Pros

Cutting Edge Products
Biggest Market Share - Virtulization/Cloud
25000 Partners w97% of fortune 500 as customers
Internal communication platforms are great for collaboration

Cons

Fast paced environment with a very entrepreneurial feel, which is good and bad. Travel policy is a lot less lenient than the consulting firm I came from.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Haven't been here long enough to tell but it seems like upper management leaves the micro managing to you and they worry about the macro. They are very interested in your professional growth and will let you know when you've done a good job.

    Great individual silo'ed efforts - no imbedded culture

    I have been working at VMware

    Pros

    - vSphere Customer base
    - Paul Maritz is a visionary
    - Stock price

    Cons

    - Customer Operations and Finance is without leadership and experience - although VMW is a products company with great engineering - business operations execution and financial management is extremely weak
    - Lack of teamwork and corporate culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the Office of the President and hire an experienced leader to motivate the troops - both engineering and sales.
