    I have been working at VMware as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great technology, very exciting products to work on

    Cons

    Teams I worked with were unhelpful to say the least. You are completely on your own. Everyone goes about their own deadlines, noone cares about what you are doing. If you're new and would like to get some help getting on your feet, then good luck to you. Because nobody is bothered about you

    I have been working at VMware full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great products, solid foundation to build upon, lots of opportunity for changing jobs

    Cons

    Constant changes of direction from upper management. Can't decide between having a vision and regressing into business as usual. Anything vaguely resembling vision vanishes quickly as it trickles down the management stack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Buy into your own visions. Give development a chance to work on crazy ideas again. Allow newly acquired companies/people to mingle with the culture-rich parts of the company. Knock down the silos, and look at how acquired tech can fit into more than just one area, instead of forcing people to keep reinventing the wheel you just bought
