Excellent peer coworkers, management of office can be a bit bureaucratic
Storage engineer for 3 1/2 years. Best thing I can say is that there will be almost zero office politics and backbiting with your peers.

You will learn a lot about VMware environment management, which will help you a lot for future positions. Its also a very comfortably casual environment. I thoroughly enjoyed going to work everyday in a t shirt and shorts.

ProsFree lunches, benefits, flexibility.
ConsSometimes a lot of sitting.
