Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

Pros

Great culture and people across all departments

Cons

Fast pace environment - not for everyone

Current Employee - Account Executive

I have been working at VMware full-time

Pros

I've worked at a lot of companies big and small and VMware is by far the best so far in it's commitment to the welfare of its people and the broader community with its emphasis on giving back.

Cons

Not all areas of the business are sufficiently resourced nor provided the best operating procedures and systems. You may find yourself doing a lot more admin and feeling less productive than you... would in other companies.

Advice to Management

Invest as much as possible on marketing. The market doesn't fully grasp the strength of our position in cloud / security.
