Featured Review

Current Intern - Technical Sales Engineer

I have been working at Cisco Systems for less than a year

Pros

Lot of exposure within Cisco Sales

Cons

Internship program could be more structured

I have been working at VMware

Pros

I've been with the company a little over a year, and I want to say this is truly a company where I genuinely respect the management team (director and VP levels). Leadership truly invests in... their employees, be it training, coaching, feedback.... Benefits are generous, rrsp matching, RSUs, stock options.... vacation time is plenty. Pay is definitely above market. Remote working and flex schedule. This company takes care of its employees and that's how they attract and retain top talent. I feel encouraged to work harder and aim higher. Proud to be a VMware employee.

Cons

Lack of admin, HR support in Canada Leadership team works extremely hard but is spread thin Remote team, not as much face time with the team
