What is corporate culture, you ask? Corporate culture is a shared set of attitudes, beliefs and norms that is passed along by the company’s employees, and is communicated to customers, suppliers and the general public. A company’s corporate culture helps give employees a sense of identity. But above all, it’s the most important factor in driving radical innovation.
When choosing an employer, you may not even realize that some of the factors that influenced your decision were based on a company’s corporate culture. Factors such as the workplace environment, the values they believe in, their corporate practices and programs, and even their benefits. The employee experience shapes and defines innovation and employee engagement.
At VMware, innovation is a key value, along with straightforwardness and open communication, a sense of fun and an appreciation for a balanced life, delivery on our promises to our customers and ourselves, and a passion for what we do and the value we deliver.
Here’s what some of our employees had to say:
“What I like most about working at VMware is, as Brave Heart would say, ‘FREEEEDOMMMM!’ I live and work according to my circadian rhythms, letting what I learn in my personal life benefit my work life and vice versa. The end result is if anything, I spend ‘too much’ time at work. But the fact that I have so many touch points and can help that many more people makes it all worthwhile. I have been working here for seven years and have not gotten bored yet.” – Hans, Systems Engineer
“(At VMware) Employees have fun, and every day is an adventure. I love it!” – Arturo
VMware’s workplace has comfortable gathering spaces for open collaboration, game & relaxation rooms, wellness & community programs, free healthy snacks & drinks, onsite cafes & services, and weekly social gatherings. We have a philanthropic culture that does more than “gives back to communities,” we offer employees the chance to experience Service Learning. Being “Green” at VMware is not just about our products (virtualization solutions) it is also an important part of how we run our business—doing our part to protect the planet every day.
So if you want to join a company whose incredible growth is a product of radical innovation and therefore translates into an amazing corporate culture, join our talent network today!
