What a waste of time
Interview candidage (Former Employee) –  Staines-upon-Thames, Surrey1 June 2018
Telephone interview with Irish based hr team. Polite and informative. Invited to interview and then nothing. How rude. Did not respond to emails or calls and simply ignored me. If this is anything to reflect on wiring with this company, I dodged a bullet and happy not to work with this company.
Pros
None
Cons
Rude employees

IT Support Engineer Astellas Pharma Ltd (Current Employee) –  Chertsey, Surrey, UK9 April 2017
it is very good to work here and i have found it a nice and learning environment for me,
Management and work place culture is very good as for as my role is concern. The hardest part is some time different users turn up same time with different issues and enjoyable day is when I handle task as team work because I have found it a learning day for me.

Client Services Executive (Former Employee) –  Homebased2 December 2016
I would support client requests for organisations using VM Ware and NetApp products. Any technical issues would be sent across to developers. I enjoyed speaking with different people that wanted to address their virtualisation needs and discuss upcoming projects.

Marketing Representative (Former Employee) –  London20 April 2016
Este si es un empleo donde tuve experiencias relacionadas con trabajar bajo presión, ya que era un programa en vivo, se enviaban capsulas a Miami para ser retransmitidas por CNN, todo tenia que estar perfectamente editado y coordinado, lo cual te enseña a estar listo ante cualquier adversidad.
Pros
Vacaciones, prestamos financieros, descuento en vuelos.
Cons
La directiva muchas veces carecia de calidad humana.

Big Promise, Poor Delivery
Senior Director (Current Employee) –  VMware UK12 January 2016
VMware has a bad habit of hiring top talent, and then leaving them to carry out trivial tasks, directed by an unqualified old-boy's network in Palo Alto. Very frustrating.

The company has no issue with taking all the time you are willing to give, and a lot more. Consistently very late nights and early mornings, regular carry-over of several weeks of holiday every year, and still the underlying feeling that you are not doing enough to keep your job.
Pros
Good name for CV
Cons
Poor Global leadership. Feels lost in the current market.
