The company is a great place to work, learn high-demanded technologies and improve skills and abilities. The culture is diverse and the environment is nice. I experienced a lack of management, but the people on my team were fabulous. The interaction with other teams was great as well.
I got the privilege of being picked to do work experience during the summer. Was really fun and got to engage with everyone and see how different parts of the company worked. We were allowed to sit with somebody and got to see how they work and what was involved
Different varieties of food
People are promoted based less on what they know and more on who they know. Many, hardworking people that bring a lot to the company are looked over. Organisation is too top heavy; with management seeming like they’re opening the door to a dark room...daily. Also, for an innovative company, management is surprisingly conservative and closed-minded. I have an amazing manager, that runs circles round everyone else, but I got lucky.
Fun banter with colleagues
Nepotism prevails; slow to get things going; a lot of false starts.
VMware consistently start people on 6 month rolling contracts, but don't pay a premium for this. Getting converted to a permanent contract is very hard, and has no clear process to get to this level. Overall, it is a great place to work, and the products and culture are great. Your experience will really depend on your manager. I would recommend VMware as an employer as they have a very good reputation in the tech industry.
Offices are dated
It is a good company. There is a space for professional development. Although, in my case, they made all us redundant and decided to move the Inside Sales part to Barcelona.
The work culture is good and the their software is superior.
Your hard work is of secondary importance, the most important is the country of your origin and languages you can speak.

Poor management, lack of support standards, misleading VMware HR strategy
Ambiente de trabajo intercultural, con enfoque hacia la motivación y la eficacia, enfocado a dar un servicio orientado a la excelencia.
Trabajar en el Centro de Soporte de VMware en Cork(Irlanda), fue una experiencia increíble para mi. Con un equipo formado por numerosas nacionalidades, un ambiente de trabajo excelente, y en contacto con clientes de grandes empresas de Europa, Oriente Medio y África, el día a día era increíblemente enriquecedor a la vez que desafiante en cuanto a retos que superar, pero que con la coordinación y el trabajo en equipo nos permitía dar los más altos valores de calidad y eficiencia requeridos por el servicio, a la vez que experimentábamos un gran crecimiento personal y profesional.
Seguro medico privado, parking, beneficios sociales, comedor gratuito, etc.
Trabajo con grandes desafíos día tras día, en el que la superación no es una opción sino un camino.
This company cannot be rated higher, the employee is looked after and treated well. The reason I moved to them was to excel and climb the corporate ladder, and VMWare strive to make sure you have the best opportunities to progress
excellent work life balance, happy employees, many perks
Lack of tooling, can be very stressul
VMware is a fun fast growing organisation full of passionate individuals. Disruption via great user experience is the DNA of what this organisation provides the world with its proven leading platform and proven leading solutions
Too much turnover
In general I can`t say anything bad about VMware. Work climate is good (at least in the backline) and there are a couple of very good engineers employed. That`s it for the first. Promotions are given to people who often don`t deserve them, to earn proper money you will need to be a new hire. Existing employees are often forgotten in regards to proper payment ("you could have negotiated better in the beginning" is an often heard answer). Promisses are often made but not often kept.
At VMWare I have to contact EU, DISTI and Reseller, prepare quotes, and daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly Forecast. Excellent company to learn considering the act that I have been working in Procurement for many years, now I can offer more acknowledgement and experience.
Trainings and health insurance
I am not working in my area
The product is fantastic, the engineers are brilliant but management is lacking. I loved the job and did very well.What I learned is even by being the top performer in the company your job is still not secureBenefits are great but they kept trying to control my earnings by changing targets with out ever discussing them, so they tried to cut costs at my expense and for someone that's in sales.. im out to make money not give it away. In my opinion this company is channel orientated and not sales orientated and once the competition has finished coping them they will loose a huge amount of market share as the competitors are sales driven
