Big Promise, Poor Delivery
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.
Poor Global leadership. Feels lost in the current market.
