      Great tech spoiled a little by overcompensation of "wokeness"

      Pros

      Great software, great people, great ethos. The company is run extremely well from financial/planning perspective - at least in the sales part....

      Cons

      Too much "woke"-ness. Too much focus on PODs for every single group of humans imaginable. Great idea in theory, but it inevitably makes many people feel like they are -ist and just didn't know it yet - but there's a training course that will point out why you are a -ist. I would like everyone to be judged on how they behave, how they treat others, their experience and suitability for a role, celebrating differences and cultures etc but not use it as a battering ram. I've marked Diversity and Inclusion as 5 stars because they put so much focus on it, I just personally think it does more harm than good and fosters negativity. Not necessarily a reason to not join or to leave, but just be aware...

      Pros

      Flexibility and great work and life balance. Great culture, underpinned by VMware's EPIC2 values and talented people. Lots of progression opportunities too.

      Cons

      N/A As most global organisations, VMware is a very fast pace environment, and working with teams across different GEOs and time zones can be quite demanding
