    Current Employee - Senior Technical Support Engineer in Cork
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company values, team contribution, benefits are good. Team members are super good and supportive.

    Cons

    No real career path and training for a support engineer. Only move up when spend "decades" at the company or know someone. It seems managers disconnected from the people (in some teams). They cannot keep talented people despite the company values and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Let the support people learn and develop. In EU that is what engineers want and come here. If that happens they will stay.

    I have been working at VMware full-time

    Pros

    Very good company on the outside. Big name, products are very good and competition is almost non-existent, they missed the shot on cloud though. Benefits and perks are exceptional with salaries, free breakfast, ESPP, good work/life balance, social events, access to training, gym

    Cons

    Very chaotic on the inside. Amateurish leadership in emea commercial segment and also across the board. Top leadership desperately lacks of charism and don't have a clear strategy, fortunately for them product sells itself. At middle management level, loads of opportunists and brown-nosers that don't care about the people. Bullying culture where personal vendettas are insidiously tolerated or get easily unnoticed, causing...

    Advice to Management

    STOP the nepotism or stop promoting diversity and inclusion. Most of emea top managers are french and used to work for Business Objects. Some managers even hired their family members in roles they're not qualified for. STOP the amateurism. Promoting unqualified people in key management roles generates a lot of toxicity as they have to micromanage to compensate their mediocrity. STOP relocating services by the means of...

    Advice to Management

    On the contrary, is a really good place to gain experience and knowledge. Really nice people to work with and really nice company events. Avoid hiring "only" English native speakers people for Management. There are a lot of well-prepared people who are ready to take this journey and not necessarily needs to be a "Paddy". I totally understand that there's a not written deal where you should keep Irish people safe against...
