    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

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

    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

    Your job is what you are doing with it. If you don’t have an entrepreneur spirit, it can be challenging as there is no micromanagement “task by task” (I guess that’s why I saw some bad review). It is the legacy of the start-up spirit that made the success of this company
