What is Computerworld’s ‘100 Best Places to Work in IT’ list?
The Best Places to Work in IT list is an annual ranking of the top 100 workplace communities for technology professionals by IDG’s Computerworld. This year, we are thrilled to announce that VMware made it into the top 5, coming in at #3 (out of 59) on the Computerworld Best Places to Work in IT 2018 in the large organization category.

In case you’re curious about how Computerworld determines the list, I have you covered. Computerworld bases their scoring on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training and retention. In addition Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.

Why is this recognition special to our community at VMware?
For the last 5 years, VMware has participated in the Computerworld 100 Best Places to Work in IT contest. Last year we were honored to see our ranking leap from #26 to #6. To know that it was our people’s survey responses that led to our improved ranking is extremely rewarding. This advancement in ranking over the last two years is a recognition of what can be achieved as a large IT organization when you combine an unwavering focus on innovation with a collaborative mindset and passionate people.

This award means the most to our CIO Bask Iyer, who shared the below note with our people today:
“Almost 2 years ago, I shared my 3-year vision for VMware’s IT organization. Number one on that list was for us to be recognized as the best in IT and a trailblazer, regardless of industry or geography. I feel extremely fortunate to lead this team, and I am confident that this award is not a destination, but merely a milestone, as we continue to reach for what’s ahead. Together, we will keep raising the bar for IT organizations of all sizes and in all industries.”

-Bask Iyer, CIO, VMware and Dell

This achievement is a tremendous milestone for the VMware IT Organization, it highlights in many ways that VMware is a great place to be an IT professional, and it’s our people that make it so. The sincere and unrelenting dedication to our culture of innovation and our EPIC2 values enables us to focus on the right things. It is what fuels our success and contributes to making VMware a vibrant place to be year after year.
