    Pros

    One can learn huge amounts of knowledge in a short time.

    I worked at VMware (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Perks are pretty good. You have an education allowance up to 5k after being in the company for a year. Very good pension, and continental breakfast, healthcare, sickpay etc.

    Cons

    For the inside sales roles in Cork it's a dead end. You are taken for granted, very much a hierarchy very inside sales is below field sales, enterprise sales etc. We are treated as children, and the pay is not great compared to other companies. No career advancement in Cork for inside sales. It's the nature of the job, you are seen as not bringing value to the business to some extend.

    Advice to Management

    Line management was ok - at inside sales director level, there was some hostility
