      EPIC and Awesome

      Pros

      VMware is one of those companies that really give you a sense of job satisfaction as they don't just talk the talk but also walk the walk which is evident in their great EPIC2 culture. Good salaries, benefits, career and personal development programs are amongst one of the best on offer in the industry. I have thoroughly enjoyed everyday since I joined as you are exposed to great products and services which are very good for one's resume. Despite Pat Gelsinger leaving as CEO, I still believe the future is very bright for the company.

      Cons

      Workload can be a bit overwhelming sometimes and training/ enablement initiatives can be a bit overwhelming as there is just too many on offer. I want to believe career progression is based on merit and down to one's hardwork but I sense there could be a bit of politics and favoritism in some quarters. There could be an improvement in Diversity, Equality and inclusion especially within senior and executive management positions.

      A broken company with many problems.

      May 12, 2021 - Sales in London, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Not many, salary and benefits are OK.

      Cons

      Management are appalling, they treat their staff very badly. The EPIC2 values are a joke, a marketing gimmick, in practice no Manager pays any attention to these ‘values’. Processes and procedures don’t work, they are so tied up in VMWare created red tape that we’re a nightmare to do business with.

      Brilliant atmosphere, everyone in Staines office was really friendly, very high salary for an intern
