vArchitect (Current Employee), McLean, VA – September 26, 2013
Pros: pay is above norm, work from home a lot in sales organization
Cons: in the review
Upper management is out of touch with field, and quick to panic if anything is amiss in their ivory tower point of view Managers in the field are pretty good Job security is hit-miss, more so here than at many organizations Productivity and knowledge of the products sold by the company are not considered for career advancement

IT Business Process Analyst (Current Employee), Richardson, TX – December 9, 2014
Pros: access to executives, great work culture and environment, boundless career growth.
Cons: ever-changing environment, if you like consistency this is not the place.
VCE is a cutting edge company with endless opportunities. In only 4 years it has taken over 50 percent of the market in converged infrastructure. Companies like IBM and HP are trying to compete in the market but have not been able to catch up.
In being a new company there are a lot of opportunities for career growth and access to executives is plentiful. – more... If you are motivated on any level and get a position with VCE, you will go far.
Because EMC is the parent company we have access to a lot of technological resources as well as their leverage on HR benefits.
Amazing company to work for, truly at the cutting edge of technology. – less

Pros: great technology
Cons: poor management
Management is abysmal with no clear direction, insight, or understanding of industry best practices. There is minimal to no opportunity for career advancement. Working here is an truly an exercise in futility and this company should be avoided.
Good work/life balance, flex working hours. start-up culture

IT (Former Employee), Richardson, TX – April 8, 2014
Pros: speaking with people all over the world
Cons: never having any down time through the course of the day
Working at VCE was an entirely new experience, fish out of water. I had no IT experience, went in thinking I was going to be an Administrative Assistant and was thrown into the Help Desk department. The language and knowledge was totally new and it was the hardest part of the job to learn but became easier to learn once I was assigned to a proprietary – more... program and worked solely with it. The hightlight of my job was working with teams in Cork, Ireland and Boston, MA, interacting with them daily, learning about their culture and deciphering their dialect, as I'm sure they had to do the same with me. – less

Pros: backed by leaders in the enterprise space
Cons: internal politics and lack of understanding of the product from the parent investors
Great concept of a manufactured and tested platform built for the customer on solid and proven underlying products. When the model fits it's great, when it doesn't if makes this a very hard sell. Every platform has it's strengths and weaknesses.
Great Company Overall. I could not have been happier. This is an IT Start up company and is doing very well. Company is located in Richardson, TX. There is a level playing field and everyone is out to help each other.
