    I worked at VMware full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best colleagues ever. Product is top of the market. good salary and benefit package

    Cons

    You receive training only initially then you're on your own. Management is bad, they only care to assign cases to someone, no customer culture, no people culture. There is some racism in let people advance in career (90% of advancements are for irish people, and some are really bad). After the first 3 months it becomes just like a chicken factory. Case after case after case after case.
    Crazy pressure (case queues reach also 40-45 cases, average on 25-30)
    Never trust managers, they tell one things and then different things are done. They always say yes and never do what they say. Only trust written words.

    Advice to Management

    Change management, hire real managers and leaders.
