Life at VMware: We’re on Pinterest!

 What's so unique about the way we work at VMware? Is it the excitment and buzz in the hallways; the intense brain power in meetings; or the way we work together as a community of people? It's a little bit of this and more. You'll find that we are all working towards a vision based on forward momentum, where we are an engine of opportunity fueled by the transformative products and solutions we bring to market, the passion and trust we inspire in our customers, and our collaborative drive to imagine, define and deliver the future of IT. 

 And what better way to see what motivates and compels us to do our best work, than to take a peek at what we are up to through our Pinterest eyes!

 We are excited to announce Life at VMware on Pinterest where we are sharing how we bring employee experiences to life through our photographs, VCTV interviews, YouTube videos, quotes, and much more in a visual story book.

VMware Bulgaria’s Annual Open House Day 2012 Showcases Innovation at its Best

  Hristina Haralampieva

 VMware Bulgaria’s Open House Day, initiated five years ago, continues to be an annual highlight that attracts experienced developers, quality engineers and other technical experts eager to gain an insider’s look at the products, solutions and processes of VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure. OHE3[1]  

 This year’s most recent event focused on innovation by inviting five employee experts to present cutting edge projects developed locally in Bulgaria. Experts shared their insights by taking a deep-dive into the Java environment for modeling UI interactions, applications of PCA (Principal Component Analysis), as well as VMware’s global innovation culture. Previous events focused on topics such as Cloud Computing and Platform-as-a-Service (“PaaS”). Nikolay, VMware Bulgaria R&D Manager, who presented vCenter Operations Manager, had this to say about the event:

I was pleasantly surprised to see people interested in the details of the PCA (Principal Component Analysis). I’m glad there are people dealing with similar high-end topics. There were a lot of interesting discussions that came about. I’d love to participate again. It was a lot of fun and it was quite motivating to meet everyone.

 In the tradition of the Open House, the event ended with a social bash where guests had the opportunity to mingle with VMware employees and learn more about the company culture and workplace atmosphere.
After the event we had the opportunity to catch up with several of the Open House Day guests to gauge their sentiments about the event. Stanimir, a software entrepreneur, who was among the event attendees said:

The event exceeded my expectations. The presentations were informative and well prepared and executed. I was pleasantly surprised that they also had technical content, which was very useful for a geek like me. During the beer bash I made contacts with several VMware employees and we chatted for more than two hours on various subjects. It gave me a good understanding of the internal culture and impressions about the quality of the engineers who work at VMware. I loved it!

  OHE2Attendees thoroughly enjoyed the event and their feedback encouraged more of these events in the future. We look forward to hosting our Open House Day again in 2013!
