Life at VMware Is the Best of Both Worlds
VMware is a leader in cloud infrastructure, business mobility, and virtualization software—and has been setting standards in the tech industry since 1998.
“It’s really exciting to be a part of a company that’s so innovative and so ahead of the game,” says Mike Valley, a systems engineer.
VMware’s got a lot of great things going for it. After all, there’s a reason it’s been recognized as a Fortune 100 Best Company to Work For and one of LinkedIn’s Most In-Demand Employers. However, two of the features that stick out the most? VMware’s emphasis on work-life balance and its near-unlimited professional opportunities.
Both entry-level and more senior employees enjoy flexible work schedules, which allows everyone to work by the style and schedule they’re happiest with. Plus, not only do night owls appreciate the option of coming in later, while morning birds love leaving early, VMware’s team members also take lots of fun breaks. Employees love hanging out in VMware’s community-focused gathering spaces and game and relaxation rooms. When they get hungry, they can grab some complimentary snacks and drinks or hit up the onsite café.
But Lipsa Rout, who works on the company’s ecosystems technical team, says her favorite way to take a break is by visiting the VMware gym, doing a yoga fitness session, or taking a Bollywood dance class.
If you’re driven, VMware is the perfect company for you.
“Employees have the ability to be promoted, move to other organizations, and aspire to different and higher roles as they advance at VMware,” explains Pam Wolters, a sales director.
The company provides on-demand development resources for all employees, including books, videos, and courses. It also offers annual “development cycle” programs to help team members set goals and progress in their careers.
Finally, VMware has manager, leadership, and future leader development programs.
Valley says, “VMware is really a culture of advancement. If a person has the skills and interest to move up in their career, VMware makes it very easy to do so.”
