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.

    Pros

    - great people, the smart ones are still here
    - the vision is amazing, very few can make it as far as we have and even fewer have the focus we do on completing that vision

    Cons

    at the lower ranks, it's not clear the right people are getting promoted. With more and more people, it's just harder to get stuff done. More political boundaries and fewer end to end accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was a time when getting stuff done was what we held people accountable to. Now it's about "smart thinking" but the actual execution is almost an after-thought. Time to hold everyone (including GMs and VPs) accountable instead to the goals they set out to do.
