A Great Company to work for.
Interactive Multimedia Presentation Designer (Former Employee), Burlington, OntarioJanuary 7, 2015
Pros: flexible working hours, work from home, catered meals, snacks, free drinks/coffee, foosball, pinball, arcades
I was sad to be laid off from VMware, and not just for the lack of job reason. I loved working for them.

I have never had managers so involved in a positive way, wanting to know what they could do to help make my life easier and finding the right strings to get the technical people to respond to me.

My team in the Burlington office was very close, going out for lunches and eating together, and helping each other out even if it wasn't necessarily our job to do so.

The hardest part was really just scheduling meetings, when you had team members in California, Colorado, Burlington, Ireland, and India it was really hard to find a time slot that worked for everyone.

I really enjoyed having flexible hours, and the ability to work from home. When winter hit really bad I didn't have to worry about traffic. There was also weekly catered meals, and bagel/pastry day where breakfast was brought in. And free coffee, soda, juice, an espresso machine with all the syrups, snacks and fruit and vegetables. I have them to partially blame for my waistline.

Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee), CanadaMay 6, 2014
Pros: excellent work environment.
Cons: on a busy day it can feel a bit like a sweatshop, limited opportunities for gaining skills outside support.
Overall VMware is an excellent employer, with great work environment. For the most part it's well managed. It's an interesting place to learn about virtualization and how a datacenter is managed. Maybe not so much for someone with a lot of hands-on experience or who wants to work directly with provisioning IT services to end users.

Consumer Desktop Support (Former Employee), Burlington, ONMay 1, 2013
Pros: weekly free lunches. free snacks and drinks
Cons: likely to be laid off within the next 2 years.
VMware was a great place to work and I envisioned working there for many years to come. Unfortunately after some company changes a lot of jobs were sold off. Job security with this company is at an all time low with more centers being built overseas.

Candidate Development Recruiter (Former Employee), Burlington, ONFebruary 5, 2013
I was very happy with my time at VMware and would recommend the company to fellow job seekers. Management was always there for support and guidance, and proved to be excellent mentors. The work environment was enjoyable - fun and laid back, but work was the priority. Their on-boarding process allowed me to really get a strong understanding for the position and I always felt encouraged to ask questions. Top notch employers!

Job is tough, but many good perks
Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee), Burlington, ONNovember 16, 2012
Pros: free juice/pop/chocolate milk, weekly food/snacks, day 1 benefits, free training
Cons: call centre
Call centre type job where you are working with System Admins who are having issues.
- On the phone for most of the day which never leaves enough time for research on your current issues
+ Plenty of resources to help you do your work. Co-workers are great and full of character
+ Management good as well, want you to excel and grow with company.
+ They know work is hard, so they have xbox, ps3, ping pong table and foosball table, to relieve stress.
+ free drinks/pop/snacks to keep people happy
+ Treated to catered food every week
+ free training

VMware Summary
Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee), Burlington, ONOctober 15, 2012
Pros: free lunches, team outings, benefits, entertainment (video games and foosball table)
Cons: office location
An ever rapidly growing company still hiring people around the globe.

That said, we are all usually very busy with customers and tasks.

There are lots of learning opportunities and exciting products.

Managers are a big question mark as I have had bad and great managers, so I guess management is okay as far as average is concerned.

Hardest part of the job is dealing with the phones and the most enjoyable is to be able to learn and cooperate with teams around the globe.

Enterprise Account Executive (Former Employee), Dallas, TXDecember 27, 2014
VMware is interesting in that they are a big company that sees themselves as a scrappy start up. VMware has a very traditional sales culture and you will typically find yourself working late nights and weekends.
