Pros

Customers love us, we make awesome products and we get to solve technical challenges every day -- and the solution makes it into enterprise IT a couple of years later. The people are smart, and the campus is beautiful.

Cons

Planning leaves something to be desired. Sometimes there's a lot of scrambling at the front end, and the tail end of the release.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and work with technology. VMware has products/components across multiple areas - storage, network, compute/memory to name a few and also many new cloud related products - cloudfoundry for example.

    Cons

    Processes like reviews and promotions are becoming more rigid and bureaucratic as company is getting bigger. Also as the company gets bigger, it is harder to keep track of the various different products and understand how they all come together. It is also getting harder to change teams.
