    I have been working at VMware full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's an exciting place to be and I love working with 'A players' in the industry. People are smart and motivated, which has meant that we are able to retain great talent. I have been at the company for 5 years and VMware has consistently grown and been profitable - even through a very rough economic climate. I attribute that success and vision to the executive leadership.

    Cons

    VMware will suck the life out of you if you let it. Work / life balance is a constant struggle. The pay is not as competitive as other companies. Working in 5th gear all of the time gets exhausting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find more ways to retain good employees and re-evaluate compensation structure for employees that have been with the company 3+ years. Provide more managerial training for managers because a lot of them do not have the skills to bring out the best in their teams and retain talent.
