    I have been working at VMware full-time


    VMware Foundation empowers employees to give back to their local communities... both time, talent and 100% match of donations. They even sent $30,000 in free software to a local non-profit because I simply asked to help them - sincere, meaningful impact. Palo Alto campus is outstanding, with a great vibe and culture! Great technology and solutions that truly save companies millions... and saves the planet, by reducing power, cooling and floor space.


    Virtual Office / Home Office is very much removed from the outstanding campus culture in Palo Alto... so keep this in mind. Starting to be a BIG company now.

    Average Interview


    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at VMware.


    Online coding challenge round is compulsory. Unfortunately I was asked to write programs in java where as I am only comfortable with c and python. But recruiter was really a nice guy. He was very quick in responding to emails and any queries.
