      Young company, lacks maturity in some aspects, as long as you know who to ask, you can get things done quickly and efficiently; great if you are a natural networker At times, HQ a little out of touch with Field

      Fantastic Technology Great innovation Really flexible working environment and company culture is at heart of everything VMware foundation Top Talent is at the centre of everything Drives to be a truly inclusive work place

      Cons

      VMware has a lot to shout about, but isn't very good at doing so in EMEA. VMware should be a company that everyone wants to work for, but there are too many mis-conceptions around the organisation we used to be and there is not enough noise talking about who we are today. HQ centric organisation

      Pros

      Very good working environment. Management gives you the keys and the freedom to perform. Very good salary too and good incentives. The product is leader on its market and new development and partnership with Dell are really exciting. Integration with VMware was a bit challenging at the beginning but now we see the benefits (big time).

      Cons
