      Beginning to have issues that beset organisations once they get to a certain size. Growth and Margin requirements driving behaviours against EPIC2 values. Increasing Processes and measurements becoming detrimental to focus on customers.

      Great work culture, work from home, big on work-life balance, flexible, innovative, fast-paced, ability to shape and define your role, good collaboration across teams

      Cons

      Getting things done can at times seem complex. Will take time getting used to, but very rewarding once you do.

      Very hard to think of any, if I had to pick: - Lots of commuting (but is expected, due to role as a field SE).

      Great organisation, culture & people.

      Pros

      Fantastic, collaborative and innovative organisation. Within VMware, irrespective to role, employees are encouraged and feel empowered to meet with senior leadership and share their views and ask for support. Vmware has an amazing culture. It is open and friendly, encourages family activities and work/life balance. Diversity and inclusion are a high priority. Top Talent individuals are given the opportunity to progress within the organisation to meet their personal career aspirations. The company also has a huge charitable (foundation) movement, which is inspiring and gives employees the opportunity to give a number of hours/days to charitable activities every year.

      Cons

      External perception from the market is that VMware is just a virtualisation company.

      Pros

      I find it as one of the best company I have ever worked for. Innovative environment; Working with people with 'can do' attitude. Quite well developed internal social life ( incl. internal groups, lots of interest-based activities, etc.). Excellent work-life balance I would say, too.

      Cons

      rather undefined, often changing environment. It might be difficult for some employees to remain agile.

      Pros

      VMware continues to steamroller the competition with killer products. Great opportunities for sales and technical to be successful. UK organisation trying hard on soft management areas such as work life balance.

      Cons

      New layers of organisational complexity breeding politics, teams working at crossed-purposes, stifling bureaucracy. Career development limited as new/replacement management recruited too much externally.
