    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary, training resources, PA campus A lot of smart engineer

    Cons

    - Political environment is destroying the company, leadership promote their friends - Benefits changes, company switch from Aetna to UHC to save money and seriously impacting the employees and families. HR doesn't do anything to help, just exist for administrative works - The EPIC2 values pushed by high executives, doesn't reflect the reality on the management level. This is a serious issue across the all BUs

    Advice to Management

    Review the Directors and Managers on the same position for more than 5 years, they are on the comfort zone and don't work to make their teams better, promote and coach. Listen the employees and their concern about UHC, families are getting seriously impacted by this change.

    - The company has pivoted and now has many products that help customers move to the cloud. - Good culture - Despite being such a large company, they do a pretty good job at using social tools to engage with the employees.
