As mentioned in a previous post this is the first time i've moved from an operational role to a pre-sales role and so far it's going great. I'm enjoying getting out and about, meeting customers, engaging with partners and everything that comes in between. I still feel I have a long journey ahead especially not coming form a pre-sales background but it's definitely an exciting time at VMware. Another three months and hopefully I'll pass the six month probation.

First Three Months at VMware
Well, i've survived my first three months at VMware and this is just a quick post about how it's been, so to sum it up in one word, WOW. First of all, VMware do a great job with the on-boarding process. They have a structured approach to learning with tasks and goals that you should complete by day one, week one, month one, month two and month three. I was advised that the first task I should complete was to order my company credit card as it comes in extremely handy. But honestly, the entire process was easy to follow and all the training is online. The training at VMware is by far the best I've had compared to all my previous employers. I'm currently sitting in a hotel room in Ascott as I'm on START training which is new hire training for all of EMEA and it's ran once every three months. I think there are currently around 93 employees from all over EMEA here which shows how much VMware values training their employees.
